“OK, But How Much Will an Investor Pay for My House?” How will they determine the Value for my house?

Typically, an investor needs to net a percentage of the profit on the investment and remodel of a home. This is after they pay for the remodeling, pay for any holding costs (financing, taxes, maintenance), and pay any commissions or costs of selling the property. Obviously, it is unrealistic to expect an investor to invest $100 – $250 thousand into a home, remodel it, and then sell it to lose money!

The good news for you (the seller), is the investor is going to remodel and improve the home, which will raise the value. Meaning, they will base their offer on the After Repair Value. After Repair Value is the value they hope to achieve by remodeling the home to the top of what buyers are willing to pay. Also, the current market conditions will effect how aggressive investors will be. In a hot market, they can take more risks. in a “soft” or slow market, investors must be more conservative.
