Selling your house can be overwhelming, especially when you need to sell fast. By selling your house for cash, you can speed up the process and make it a whole lot easier. This guide will walk you step by ninja-step through the entire process of selling your house for cash to a cash buyer like Quick Buy Homes.

  • What Is A Cash Home Buyer?
  • Are They Reputable? (And Ninja Methods To Determine If They Are Or Not)
  • Benefit of Selling To Cash Home Buyer Vs. Agent
  • Real Life Example

What Is A Cash Home Buyer?

A cash home buyer is any person, company or entity (usually a real estate investor), capable of buying your house in cash without the need for financial support from banks, lenders or other 3rd party financial institutions. Since the purchaser is using their own money, they are usually the final decision makers.

Why is that good news for you? Cash buyers empower you to…

  • Skip home Inspections needed for bank loan approvals
  • Avoid Repairs requested buy buying agents
  • Side step buyer financing issues that cause deals to fall through
  • Eliminate hassling with real estate agents

Eliminate the middle men and close on your terms! Not theirs!


5 (Ninja) Steps To Sell Your House Fast In Charleston

1. Find A Cash Home Buyer

The most common method for finding cash home buyers is by doing a Google search for: “We Buy Houses [yourCity] [yourState]“, “Sell My House Fast [yourCity] [yourState], or “Cash For My House In [yourCity] [yourState], and choosing the top ranking results underneath the ads. The ad results often are not reliable or reputable as people simply pay to be on top. They are not on top because they are reputable.(Ads can be recognized by the letters “Ad” preceding the Google listing).

2. Visit Their Website

not all cash home buyers are the same

Not all cash home buyers are the same. The offer amount and thus the method used to arrive at your offer often differs significantly. For this reason you should go over their website. What you are looking for is transparency, a neat, clean and professional polished website, clear explanations, and professionalism. The website is a direct reflection on them and their business. If a business owner doesn’t take pride in their website they don’t take pride in their business and may not be the wisest choice to do business with.

3. Submit Your Information

Once you found a reputable house buyer, it is time to get your cash offer started by submitting your information. The information needed from you is 1) a reliable way to contact you (usually a phone number or email address), 2) the address and 3) some details on the current condition of the house and what repairs it needs, if any.

4. Schedule Your Appointment

Once the information is received, an appointment can be scheduled where you can meet the buyer, and walk through the property together. There should never be any costs associated for these services and the offer is a no obligation to accept offer. Most reputable property buyers understand that this is a critical time in your life and you have a big decision to make. They should respect the need to think it over and you should have a cash offer friendly attorney look over the contract.

5. Schedule Your Closing Date And Get Paid!

If the offer presented is to your satisfaction, you can set a date for closing. During closing you will get the cash and that’s it. You sold your house for cash to a cash buyer successfully! Usually it is the cash buyer that will pay for all closing costs, making sure the transaction is as attractive as possible for you, the seller.

Cash Home Buyer Vs. Agent

What’s Your Best Option?

It’s always smart to explore your options and see what will best help you reach your goals when selling your house in Charleston. While you might get a better “top line” sales price listing your home with a real estate agent, it’s important to focus on the bottom line and the time involved in the process. Dealing with cash home buyers often means less headaches and hassles and more cash in your pocket.

    How We Make Offers To Buy Your Home In Charleston

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


    Quick Buy Homes stays in business by getting offers accepted. The only way to do that is by making offers that our sellers love. We do our best to give the highest offer possible.


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

    The “After Repair Value” is simply the value of your home after it is completely fixed up. Based on this value we calculate your offer!

    cash for house steps in charleston

    [YOUR OFFER] = [ARV] – [REPAIR COSTS] – [SELLING COSTS] – [ROI]

    After Repair Value (ARV): This is the market value of your home after we buy and renovate your house.

    Cost Of Repairs: This is what we estimate our cost will be to update the house to current market conditions, and it’s what you are saving (along with your time) if you sell your house to us!

    Closing CostsThis is an estimate of the cost of selling commissions, excise tax, property tax, utilities, insurance (title and property and escrow fees.) It’s typically around 10% of the ARV.

    Return On InvestmentThis is how we pay our contractors and keep the business running. If we didn’t return some level of profit, we wouldn’t be a great business!

    What Does This Mean In English?

    The market value of your home (after we update it) minus the costs to repair it, closing costs and our minimum profit equals your offer!

    Let’s look at a house we bought recently in Charleston


    all cash offer as is no repairs needed

    Look at the living room in this picture.

    It’s in pretty decent shape, right?

    But, let’s be honest.

    It could use a few updates…

    Now, let’s think about the neighbor across the street with a similar home.

    He’s updated his 80’s living room and kitchen and bathrooms.

    He painted the exterior of his home and refinished the interior floors.

    Imagine if your house looked like this now…

    It makes sense that he sold it for $500K because it looks incredible!

    no repairs needed

    In order for our team to be able to sell your house for $500K, we need to update your house to a bare minimum of the same condition as your neighbor

    Why you ask?

    There is no way we can sell your house in its current condition for $500K when all other homes for sale in your neighborhood are upgraded like your neighbor’s house.

    Would you buy a home that is older for $500K when renovated homes in the same area are selling for the same price?

    Of course not!!!

    So the next question you probably have is:


    If the house would sell for $500K fully renovated, how much is it worth before any updates?


    Quick Buy Homes has the advantage that one of our local owners, Brad, is also a fully licensed general contractor.

    Brad would walk through your home and determine an accurate Statement Of Work. This is an estimate of what it would cost to update your home and make it look as good as your neighbors (actually, probably much better knowing Brad’s handy craftsmanship!)

    Since we do not have to reach out to any contractors, we usually get our cash offer to you within 24 hours..

    Anthony, one of the other local owners, will call you and give you our highest and best offer based off real numbers (not some low-ball offer typical of many other cash buyers)

    Let’s break down the numbers!

    Brad determine’s that your house needs $80K of repairs to make your home look amazing 🏠 🙌

    ARV (After Repair Value) = $500,000

    COR (Cost Of Repairs) = $80,000

    Closing Costs = 10% x $500,000 = $50,000

    Our Minimum Return = $30,000

    [YOUR OFFER] = [ARV] – [REPAIR COSTS] – [SELLING COSTS] – [Our Minimum Return]

    Your Offer = $500K – $80K – $50K – $30K = $340K

    Your Cash Offer = $340K

    Our Offers Are Based On Real Numbers

    We’re not going to waste your time with unrealistic offers based on some percentage of your home’s After Repair Value. We simply add up the numbers and do our best to give you the highest possible offer.

    Time To Analyze Your Offer

    Let’s assume your house is worth $375K as is, meaning if you listed your home with an agent you could sell it for $375K with no updates.

    However, after 6% in agent fees (or $23,000), you would most likely get about $352K for your home, and that’s after your house has been on the market for months!

    No one can guarantee your house will actually sell (not even your agent taking all those fees)

    Now it’s time to make a (fairly easy) decision.

    Option 1: Sell your house for a guaranteed cash sale of $340K in as little as 7 days.

    Option 2: Hopefully sell your house on the market for $352K assuming you find a buyer, bank financing doesn’t fall through and the deal isn’t held up during inspections. (Keep in mind your house could be on the market for months even if it eventually sells).

    What if Brad determines the cost of repairs is $50K instead of $80K?

    Now things are getting interesting!

    Let’s run those numbers one more time!

    ARV (After Repair Value) = $500,000

    COR (Cost Of Repairs) = $50,000

    Closing Costs = 10% x $500,000 = $50,000

    Our Minimum Return = $30,000

    [YOUR OFFER] = [ARV] – [REPAIR COSTS] – [SELLING COSTS] – [Our Minimum Return]

    Your Offer = $500K – $50K – $50K – $30K = $370K

    Your Cash Offer = $370K

    That’s right! Almost $20,000 more than what you would get if you listed your home as is with an agent. (remember you walk away with about $352K after agent fees and closing costs).
