    SELLING TO SIMPLY SOLD HOMES CASH HOME BUYERS

    I’m sure you’ve seen a bunch of similar websites, or gotten some mailers from other companies claiming they will buy your house for cash, and that you can sell your house fast to them. Since you’re on our “How it works” page, I’m assuming that like most of our sellers, you’re probably still wondering…

    How does this whole “we buy houses cash” process REALLY
    work? It can’t be that simple, can it?

    Well, in short, yes, selling your home in Oregon fast for cash is a very simple and easy process – for you. For us, it’s a little different story. There’s a lot of work that goes on in the background on our end, to make sure that the home selling experience goes smoothly and easily for you.

    Why should I sell to you and not list with a Realtor?

    Well, maybe listing with a realtor is really the better option for you. For some people it is. If we feel that listing with an agent would make more sense for you, we will happily let you know that on the initial call. In addition to buying your home, the licensed Realtors on our team can also list it for you. Below are some of the main differences between selling to Simple Sold Homes the #1 Cash Home Buyer in Oregon, vs. listing with an agent.

    So You Want To Sell Your House Fast For Cash!

    ...And Still Want A Fantastic Offer!

    “We Buy Houses” companies will often try to give you the lowest possible offer. This doesn’t make any sense to us. We spend time and effort doing your home analysis so we can get you cash for your home in PDX. We spend time and money driving to properties all over Oregon.
    All these services are 100% FREE to you! No one will accept a low offer and we would have spent so much time, money, and effort for nothing.

    How We Make Our Offers To Buy Your Portland Home

    It’s In Our Best Interest To Give You Our Highest Possible Offer.

    is to give offers you’ll be happy with! We truly do our best to give you the highest possible offer we can give.
    Now you know why we have such raving reviews!

    Our Offers Are Based On Your Home’s “After Repair Market Value”


    This simply means, we look at what the value of your home would be, completely fixed up. Based on this value we will formulate your offer!
    How Exactly?

    • Well, imagine you have a house that you want to sell…
    • Now, imagine your neighbor has the same house as yours, except for a few upgrades he made… say, he added granite countertops, a new furnace, applied a fresh coat of paint, put a new roof on, and put hardwood floors in.
    • Now Imagine they sold his house for $500K.

    What Do We Know Now?

    Well,we know,that if we make the same upgrades to your (AFTER we buy it from you of course), bringing the house to a very similar condition as your neighbor’s house, we would also be able to sell it for $500K.

    So,

    We know the Market value of your house if we fixed it up (in this case $500K), and we know the cost of
    repairs/upgrades. We can now make an offer that works for us. If this offer also works for you, great we close and
    you get your money at closing! As you can see, we make offers based on the market numbers, not based on how
    desperate you may or may not be to sell.

    The Offer:


    All you math lovers out there, will appreciate this section. We value honesty and transparency. We have no issues
    sharing with you how exactly we formulate our offers.

    [Your Offer] = [After Repair Value] – [Cost Of Repairs] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]

    But in order for you to understand this we need to define some terms.

    After Repair Value (ARV): This is what the market value of your house will be AFTER we buy and renovate
    the house. Yup we are just like your favorite HGTV flipping show.

    Cost Of Repairs (COR): This is what our cost will be fixing/updating the house AFTER we purchase it from
    you.

    Our Selling Costs: Although we buy houses without involving agents, we on the other hand, have to use an
    agent to sell that house again AFTER we have purchased it from you and fixed it up. So we have to pay agent
    fees, closing costs, taxes, holding costs, etc. These are all the fees you do NOT have to pay if you sell your
    house directly to us ;).
    This is usually 10% altogether of the selling price. (Our Selling Cost = 10% x ARV)

    Our Minimum Profit: Yeah, this is a business after all, and we wouldn’t be able to stay in business, buy more
    houses, pay contractors, plumbers, etc if we didn’t make some sort of profit. However, we keep this to an
    absolute minimum so we can present you with the highest possible offer. See, our business model is structured
    around making many deals with a little profit per deal, and not a few deals with a huge profit per deal. This
    benefits all.

    See the numbers in action on a house we recently bought:

    2300 NW Portland, OR

    The Seller

    Ms. Renae called us and wanted a fast cash sale on her house. she had a foreclosure sale coming up in about a month and she didn’t want to waste time by listing the house with a Realtor. The house needed some updating and she didn’t have the funds to fix things up. She also needed help finding a place to move to after the sale, so she gave us a call.

    The House

    This was a family house in Northwest Portland, Oregon. The property was in decent condition and had not been updated in 40 years. The home needed a lot of cosmetic work and we did a major rehab throughout the property.

     

    The Deal

    We estimated the repairs to be around $50K and for us to be able to resell it for around $525K after we fix it up. Based on the magic formula, here’s how we calculated our offer: $320K (ARV) minus $100K (repairs) minus $52.5K (selling costs) minus $52.5K (our min profit) = Offer of $325K. Ms. Renae really needed $5K more so we ended up agreeing on a $325K fast cash sale (closing in 2 weeks).

    So how much did we really end up making on it?

    The whole project took us about 4 months. Repairs ended up being $104,000 and we ended up selling it for $523,000. Our profit came up to $45,548. Considering we raised our initial offer by $5K to make the seller happy and get the deal done, our estimates were pretty close on this one.

    Our Vist: We would come in, with our contractor and if we can, our agent. (We bring our contractor and our agent to the walkthrough so that our agent tells our contractor what needs to be fixed (as he/she knows what buyers are currently looking for) and what does not need to be fixed (to save on the cost of repairs).

    Our Agent: Tells us, that we need granite countertops, because the neighbor across the street that sold his house for $525. also has granite, as well as hardwood floors, new furnace, new roof, installing new appliances etc.

    Our Contractor: Gives us an accurate COR (Cost Of Repairs). See, we know exactly what we will do to the house the second we are done with the walk-through and we have already completed the flip in our imagination and we know exactly what all the numbers will look like.

    The more accurate these numbers are the better (and the higher) your offer will be! Let’s say our contractor gives us a cost of repairs of $100K.

    Now We Are Ready To Make You An offer!
    Here are the numbers:

    As-ls Value = $365K

    ARV (After Repair Value) = $550K

    COR (Cost Of Repairs) = $95K

    Our Selling Cost = 10% x $550K = $55K

    Let’s say Our Minimum Profit For This Purchase = $55K

    [Your Offer] = [ARV] – [COR] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]

    Your Offer = $550K – $95K – $55K – $55K = $345K

    Your Offer = $345K

    “WE SIMPLY ADD THE NUMBERSUP & GIVE YOU THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE OFFER WE CAN MAKE YOU, YOU ARE HAPPY!”

    Analyzing The Offer

    So, the house is worth $505K AS-IS, meaning if you listed it with an agent you could sell it for $550K. Yet after 6% agent fees and closing costs you would probably get about $500K for it, and you will have fix up the house to get it ready to go on the market in 5? 6? months! And no one can guarantee the house will actually sell.

    So now you have to make a decision.

    Sell it for a guaranteed sale for $505K in as little as 10-20 days, or a “maybe sale” for $550K hopefully within 5 to 6 months.

    ~Decisions, Decisions.


    BUT WAIT!!!

    What If The Cost Of Repairs Was $70K Instead Of $100K?

    Now things get interesting! Now the offer becomes:

    As-Is Value = $345K

    ARV (After Repair Value) = $550K

    COR (Cost Of Repairs) = $70K

    Our Selling Cost = 10% x $300K = $55K

    Let’s say Our Minimum Profit For This Purchase = $55K

    [Your Offer] = [After Repair Value] – [Cost Of Repairs] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]

    Your Offer = $550K – $70K -$55K – $55K = $370K

    Yup! That is $10,000 MORE than what the house is currently worth. and almost $32K more than what you would get if you had listed it with an agent (remember that you would only get $328K after all listing and agent fees.) Again, our offers are based on the numbers, not on how desperate you are to sell.
