ORIGINS OF CASH FOR HOMES BUSINESS MODEL
Many companies offering to buy your house for cash have popped up over the last decade-and-a-half. With the mortgage crisis of 2008 came a lot of financial turmoil for homeowners, and many people were ill-equipped to handle the unexpected nature of the collapse. There weren’t enough solutions coming to the aid of these distressed homeowners who were spinning quickly down the path to foreclosure. Many real estate investors started offering to buy these homes for cash as a business investment, but also to offer some relief to the homeowners—those who had been backed into a corner by the unpredictable and crumbling market.
A lot of these companies were able to help people out of the seemingly impossible financial situations they were in. They were turning a profit and also serving a great purpose in their communities—which they supported with their business. These original cash home buyers were defining what a mutually beneficial relationship was all about: using their means to take the burden off of individuals and families that were falling victim to the crash.
Cash buying companies began to multiply. But, with the emergence of all these new businesses spreading across the country, there unfortunately were ill-intentioned ones borne of the movement. Because of the bad apples out there, cash home buying companies can get a bad reputation. They may often be associated with fraudulent activity or be labeled as a scam by people who have been taken advantage of, falling victim to illegitimate cash home buyers. It’s a sad reality for some.
WHY WE STAND APART
Meet Dan. He is the founder and CEO of World Class Home Buyers Inc, and one of the acquisition managers with the company. The company operates out of, and serves, the states of Indiana and Illinois. He started his company with the same good intentions as the other investors did—those that stepped out to help in the wake of the crash. His philosophy in business is transparency. As you will learn when you navigate through our website, he’s quick to share every detail of how he does business—from the front end walk-throughs of your property to the back end of closing the deal. Dan lays it all out so there are no unknowns, misinformation, implications, assumptions, or surprises when you choose to work with World Class Home Buyers Inc. What you see is what you get, and they show you everything. If you need some pointers or are looking for direction on how to sell your house, you can look to the experts at World Class Home Buyers Inc. They love to educate sellers on their options!
The company isn’t formal, and Dan will be quick to let you know they are not suit-and-tie people. There are no airs about them. They are house flippers through-and-through: people who are passionate about buying properties to transform into new and beautiful spaces. They love taking on multiple new projects at a time! Their knowledge and expertise in doing a lot of the contracting work themselves allows them to keep their offers higher than the competition can. Our house flippers are real people—both entrepreneurial and humanitarian. They understand that life happens and some things are out of our control. They aim to help you regain some of that control so you can move on to the next chapter in your life. Our flippers pride themselves on keeping a people-centered approach to doing business. While turning a profit is what they do for a living, they believe wholeheartedly in the importance of treating people with dignity, respect, and compassion. They make it a priority to ensure that their customers feel heard and understood as they navigate the process of selling their home.
Dan also encourages sellers to do their due diligence and offers as much education about the cash home buying process as he can. He makes a point to remind you that all cash home buyers are not the same. The offer amount and the method used to arrive at your offer often differ significantly from company to company. For this reason, he highly recommends combing over each company’s website and making sure there are credible reviews—from real people that sold their house to these businesses. A company’s website in this technological age is a pretty good reflection of their business and practices, and is a good indicator of what you can expect from them in a business transaction. Be a tough critic when researching the cash home buyer companies you consider doing business with.
Dan prides himself and his company on keeping it real and honest in business. He doesn’t believe in hiring actors or actresses, or using internet stock images to market his company. World Class Home Buyers Inc isn’t concerned about projecting a certain image. Rather, Dan believes that the company’s high ratings across many platforms are the best testament to quality. We feel we are the best cash home buyers in Indiana and Illinois, and our customers would agree.

WHY A CASH SALE IS A GOOD OPTION
Making the decision to sell your house for cash is a great solution to many homeowner woes. If you decide to sell the traditional way—listing with an agent—you may experience major headaches. Moving forward with a cash home buying company could be your answer, but only after you’ve done your research. You don’t need to spend endless hours online learning every nook and cranny of the cash for homes business or conduct extensive real estate market research. Just build a foundational knowledge of why they exist, how they operate, and how they could offer a solution for you; it’s a great place to start. When you choose to put your trust in World Class Home Buyers Inc, we encourage you to shop around with the competition and even bring in your own agent for another professional quote—even after we’ve made you an offer. This is how certain we are that we make the highest offers around.
From our many years of experience working with the great people in Indiana and Illinois, we’ve found that selling your house for cash is a sound solution to these 3 common life situations:
1: Financial Hardship
A pay cut, reduction in hours, or loss of income entirely can set you on a downward spiral toward foreclosure. If this is where you are heading, time is of the essence to sell. Other common events that may lead to financial hardship include: a serious medical diagnosis, uninsured injuries that affect a person’s ability to work, and sudden relocation due to family crises. These are all life situations in which a quick sell for cash could stop you from snowballing.
Oftentimes, we help people who have inherited property from a loved one who has passed away. It’s not uncommon for these houses to have been occupied by an elderly person who may have not been capable of maintaining it properly. Or, they may have left issues unrepaired due to fixed income situations. In many cases, the beneficiary of the house wants to unload the property. Whether they can’t afford to own a second home, can’t make repairs on it, or don’t live locally and are unable to manage it as a rental, a cash offer is usually a pretty attractive option in this situation.
Whether or not your divorce was amicable, both parties are usually motivated to move on and start the next chapter of their lives. Division of property and marginal assets can be a complicated and lengthy process. This may add another layer of stress to an already stressful situation by nature. A lot of divorce attorneys agree that the best and cleanest option in divorce mitigation is to sell the house, pay off the loan, and split the profit 50/50 between the two parties. If you want to sell a house fast so you can wrap up your divorce, a cash offer is the most efficient solution.
HOW YOU SAVE
Aside from our core beliefs that integrity and honesty shape our business, here are some more reasons why you should choose World Class Home Buyers to purchase your home for cash.
- You, as the seller, pay $0 in fees and closing costs. We pay out of our own pockets to cover those expenses for you.
- NO agent fees or commissions. Our offers are free and have no obligation. No online listings, open houses, or yard signs.
- Close quickly. We can guarantee a closing in less than 30 days, whereas a traditional closing could take upwards of 90 days. There will be no hang-ups in negotiations or delays in loan applications.
- Our offers are high, with no undercutting to you. We are able to keep our offers high because we keep our costs low! It’s the core of our business model and it’s been leaving a trail of satisfied customers in our wake. It’s tried and true!
- We buy all our houses as-is, so you can save money on cleaning and repair bills. Your house can be in virtually any condition—we’ll still buy it! We anticipate repair costs and assume them when we make your offer. It’s headache and hassle-free on your part, we promise.
- Avoid the inconvenience and stresses of showings, walk-throughs, and the revolving door of house tours. No need to vacate the premises at inopportune times to let prospective buyers in—with no guarantee of interest level or potential offers.
- No appraisal or inspection fees. Since there’s no lender or bank acting as the middleman in our all-cash offers, there is nothing hinging on the appraisal. And, we bring in our own people to do a quick inspection—just so we know where the cash needs to go when we eventually flip your house. We cover the costs of everything.
HOW THEIR PROCESS WORKS
We know how complicated traditional home selling can be. When you list your home with an experienced real estate agent to sell, you will almost certainly have to pay out of pocket on the front end; that means fronting cash to clean, decorate, and stage your home for prospective buyers. This includes both interior and exterior. You’ll have to make sure the inside of the house is aesthetically pleasing and the outside has great curb appeal. This may require the added costs of renting furniture or decor for staging purposes—especially if the home is vacant, and landscaping to spruce up and maintain your yard.
Another added cost to your bank account (and your timetable) are negotiations and financing—when the buyer secures funds from their lender. Negotiations on price alone can go on for weeks before a home inspection is even ordered. And, home inspections are notorious for bringing issues to light; this can tack even more weeks onto negotiations. Add in delays in mortgage applications, the underwriting process, and conditional approvals and you are looking at months of waiting. If the financing falls through, you are starting from scratch. If one of your top priorities is selling fast, this will almost certainly be the biggest roadblock in your way.
You’ll also pay at closing—when you finally make it there. You can expect to pay thousands of dollars in closing costs. Don’t forget about the realtor fees or agent commissions here, either. Traditional home selling, even when it progresses smoothly through all the steps of the process, can be expensive and lengthy—with heavy administrative work across each rung. If you are needing cash quickly, don’t have the time to navigate through the complexities of the traditional home sale, or are bogged down by an unexpected financial hardship, you should consider the simplest and most time-effective option: a cash sale.

HOW OUR PROCESS WORKS
Here is how World Class Home Buyers simplifies the sales process for you—when you don’t have the time or money to go the traditional route.
Step 1: Send us your information
Take a few minutes to fill out the form on our website to get the process started. You won’t be signing up for anything, or become obligated to work with us. It’s just the first step in figuring out how we might be able to help you. It’s really that simple. The only information we need from you is:
- A reliable way to contact you (usually a phone number or email address)
- The address of the house you want to sell
- Some details on the current condition of the house and what repairs it might need, if any
Step 2: We’ll reach out
After you send us your details, we’ll get back to you within 24 hours. We’ll contact you to make an appointment to do a walk-through. You can ask us any questions you may have, and by the end of the walk-through, we’ll present your offer and discuss it with you. There will never be any costs associated with this step and you are under no obligation to accept the offer. You can even sleep on it! Most reputable property buyers understand that this is a critical time in your life and that you have a big decision to make. We totally respect the need to think it over. We also encourage sellers to seek out a cash-offer-friendly attorney to review the contract. If you’d prefer, we now have virtual walk-through options available for your convenience.
3: Collect your cash
Once we complete the walk-through, we can get to work crunching our numbers and make you an offer. If the offer we present is to your satisfaction, you can set a date for closing. We will have your cash ready for you as promised and will cover all the closing costs.
These three simple steps describe what you can expect from our home buying process. However, you might be interested to see what goes on behind the scenes and what steps we take on the business side of things—from our position in the deal. As always, we pride ourselves on transparency and keeping things honest. We invite you to continue reading as we provide a detailed explanation and full disclosure on how the house buying process works, from start to finish. If you are looking for a quick and solid educational foundation on what we do, here’s a peek inside the operations of our business.
Selling your house can be a daunting task, especially when you need it sold fast. By selling your house for cash, you can speed things up. Before we walk you through the ins and outs of the cash home buyer solution, let us first define some related concepts and key terms—to help you better understand what we are talking about when we describe what World Class Home Buyers does.
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. As the purchaser is providing their own money, they are the final decision-makers, thus eliminating the need for approvals or inspections from 3rd party institutions. This drastically speeds up the transactional processes involved in a home sale.
After Repair Value (ARV): This is what the market value of your house will be AFTER we buy and renovate the house.
Cost of Repairs (COR): This will be the cost of 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.
Our Minimum Profit: This refers to the money we make after we sell the flipped home. 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 us as a business, and you as a seller. We pride ourselves in using a business model that enables us to make a profit, while also providing you with fair cash offers. Those offers are based on your home’s “after repair market value.” Simply, we look at what the value of your home would be when completely fixed up. Based on this value, we will formulate your offer. This is the equation we use:
[Your Offer] = [After Repair Value] – [Cost Of Repairs] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]
So what does this formula mean to the layman?
Simply put, the market value of the house (after we fix it up), minus ALL costs of fixing it up (including our profits) will be the offer you receive from us. For even more clarification, let’s look at the following sample scenario:
Imagine you have a house that you want to sell. Imagine your neighbor has the exact same house, except for a few upgrades. These upgrades can include attractive features like granite countertops, a fresh coat of paint, a new roof, and hardwood floors (installed or refinished). Now imagine that he sold his house for $300K. Well, we know that If we make the same upgrades to your house (AFTER we buy it from you), we would also be able to sell it for $300K. So, we know the market value of your house once we flip it (in this case, $300K), and we know the cost of repairs/upgrades (because that’s our business). We use these figures to determine how much cash we should pay for your house. We make our offers based on the fair market value numbers, and we don’t take advantage of people based on their current financial or emotional state.
Determining what upgrades we can make to sell the house for profit—while also offering you a fair deal—requires some outside consulting on our part. We do all of this in-house and free of charge to the seller, of course. When we do a walk-through with you, we will bring our contractor and, usually, our agent. Our experienced agent knows what buyers are currently looking for in a home purchase. He/she tells our contractor what repairs need to be taken care of right away, and what seems to be in good working condition/functioning properly. Our agent, who knows the current comps, tells us what upgrades the other homes in the area have (i.e. stone countertops, new appliances, etc.) Our contractor then gives us an accurate “cost of repairs”. This tells us exactly what we should do to the house the second we are done with your walk-through. We’ve imagined the flip and have already filled in all the gaps to bring our vision to fruition—based on the numbers. The more accurate these numbers are, the more accurate (and probably higher) your offer will be.
Let’s revisit our sample scenario from above. Let’s imagine our contractor gives us a cost of repairs in the amount of $70K. Now, we plug the numbers into our equation:
As-Is Value = $190K
ARV (After Repair Value) = $300K
COR (Cost Of Repairs) = $70K
Our Selling Cost = 10% x $300K = $30K
Let’s say Our Minimum Profit For This Purchase = $40K
[Your Offer] = [ARV] – [COR] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]
Your Offer = $300K – $70K – $30K – $40K = $160K
Your Offer = $160K
As you can see from the math, we play by the numbers. We do not make offers based on how desperate the seller may be to sell, or how strapped they are for cash. We don’t base offers on some percentage of the After Repaired Value. That’s not how we do business. We simply add the numbers up, while doing our best to give you the highest possible offer we can. If we can supply an offer that will make you happy, and this leads to a signed contract, and that leads to our next flipping project, then it’s a win/win scenario.
Think of it this way when considering a cash offer:
The house is worth $190K as is. This means if you listed it with an agent you could sell it for $190K. Yet, after 6% agent fees and closing costs, you would probably only get about $174K for it. This route will probably force you to wait for at least 3 months—and that’s after you’ve shown the property and accepted an offer. There’s no guarantee if and when that will even happen.
