Are you looking for the fastest, easiest, most convenient way to sell your house, but overwhelmed by what you’re finding online?
Maybe you’ve received letters, post cards, telephone “cold calls,” text messages, and hounded by who knows what else.
Would you like to sell your house “as is,” without an agent, for cash, but are now wondering….
Is This A Scam?
As the founder and owner of The Sierra Group, LLC home buyers, I can tell you that my company started buying houses for cash more than 25 years ago, and is certainly NOT a scam.
I will also tell you that there are companies, maybe some that you’ve checked out online (or from other ads or marketing) that may be!
Unfortunately, with the current real estate market, combined with today’s technology, the “barrier of entry” for someone to say they are a “cash home buyer” is VERY low.
Today, someone is able to easily create a web site, put an ad online (or send post cards, voicemails, text messages, etc.) and make it look like they are a home buying company.
However, as more and more home sellers are finding out, there is a big difference between a “real” home buying company like The Sierra Group, and someone… or company… that just looks like or says they are.
Many of these “home buying” companies are what are called “wholesalers” which will tell you they can buy your house, but when they have a contract to purchase a house, their goal is to “flip” that contract to a buyer that actually has the funds to close and purchase the house. Beware of wholesalers!
We Are Trusted, Legitimate Cash Home Buyers
I can assure you that with my company, we can buy your house, and close as soon as the title & closing company can check title and prepare the closing paperwork, or on YOUR date of choice!
What’s The Catch?
One of the other questions many home sellers ask about home buying companies is… What’s The Catch?
If you value the benefits that we provide, there really is no catch!
What are the benefits we provide?

Valuation and Property Research
Next, we would do what research we can online to get a good idea of values of properties in your neighborhood. We would look at the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) to see what is “on the market” currently, what has sold recently, what didn’t sell, etc.
Then we would visit your property to get a better idea of the condition of your property. We look at what items need to be repaired or updated to get it to a “nice” condition.
We Provide One or More Offers For Your Property
We can typically provide you with one or more offers after we finish our inspection! And, we will show you how we arrived at our offer.
Be careful when speaking with a home buying company that makes an offer for your house without actually looking at it.
Although there are situations where getting an offer on your house based on pictures may be necessary, it is not going to take the place of an actual inspection of the property.
And, just know that if a home buyer makes an offer over the phone, or even based on pictures you send them, the amount they pay will likely be less at closing when they send an actual inspector to check the house out prior to closing.
“Ben was very helpful and patient when it came time to selling my home. After my husband passed away I needed to fix and sell the house. They helped me, gave me honest advice and waited patiently while I made decisions. They will work with you and for you. They are fair, understanding and helpful. Ben will contact you by phone, text or email and never leaves you waiting. He is great and awesome to work with! You won’t be disappointed! Excellent service!”

How We Create Our Offers to Buy Your House
We’ve been able to be “in business” for more than 25 years by providing home sellers offers that work.
Yes, I know you understand that we need to make a profit to stay in business, but if we didn’t make offers that made sense for a seller, we wouldn’t buy any houses.
Because we want to be honest and transparent with you, I want to share how we create our offers.
Our Offers Are Based On The Potential Market Value Of Your Home
We start by looking at the “potential market value” of your home, or the value if the property was “nice” and completely fixed up.
We determine this value based on neighborhood “comparable” properties. We look at houses that have recently sold, ones that were on the market but didn’t sell, and ones that are currently on the market. We look to see the condition and the updates they may have had.
We take into consideration the amount of repairs and/or updates that we or another buyer would have to put into your house to get it into its “nice” or fixed up condition.
We then take into account the “transaction costs.” Expenses such as the costs to buy the house from you (you do NOT have to pay closing costs, because we pay them), the costs to sell the house either sooner or later, the holding costs while we own the house (interest, insurance, taxes, utilities, etc.), and any other costs and fees that we may incur while we own the house.
And, as mentioned above, some amount for a profit. We know we have to make an attractive offer to you and provide benefits and services that you value, otherwise we would not still be in business after 25+ years!
How We Calculate Our Offers…
So You Can Sell Your House Fast!
We want to be up front and transparent with you. That’s why we want to show you exactly how we come up with our offer for your house.
[After Repaired Value] – [Cost of Repairs] – [Transaction Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit] = [ Your Offer ]
In order for the above to make sense, I will provide some additional information here:
After Repaired Value (ARV): This is what we estimate the market value of your house to be AFTER it is renovated and updated.
Cost of Repairs: This is the estimated cost of what we or someone else would spend to renovate and update the house. We attempt to come up with the most accurate numbers we can that make sense. For example, a person could spend $20,000 to update a kitchen, but maybe wouldn’t add any more value than spending $15,000.
Transaction Costs: Although we don’t buy houses involving agents, we do have to pay fees to market a property and find a buyer when we decide to sell one. In addition to these marketing fees, we have to pay closing costs to buy and resell the property at some point, we typically have to pay some or all of the buyer’s closing costs (this is negotiable, but most buyers always ask for a seller to pay for these expenses, interest expense while holding the property, vacant property insurance, utilities, etc.
These are all the fees that you do NOT have to pay, when you sell direct to us. This usually adds up to 12% to 15% of the selling price.
Our Minimum Profit: I’m sure you understand that like any business, we have to make a profit or we wouldn’t be able to stay in business. However, we have to keep our profit at a minimum so that we can provide a great offer to you and be competitive in the market.
In English, Please!
So what does this all mean in plain English? Simply this:
The potential market value of the house (in a “nice” fixed up condition), minus ALL costs of fixing it up, ALL holding and transaction costs, and an allowance for a profit, will be our offer. Its as simple as that!
With our offer, you know when we are going to close (in as little as a few days, or on YOUR date of choice), you know the amount of cash you will receive at the closing table, you won’t have to do any repairs or updates to the house, you won’t have to prepare your house for showing or keep it in show ready condition, you won’t have to worry about the unknown results of a whole house inspection or appraisal, and you won’t have to worry about a buyer backing out or changing their mind at the last minute.
As you can see, we work with real numbers. We do not make offers based on how desperate or distressed a person may or may not be. We don’t base offers on some percentage of the After Repaired Value.
We simply run our numbers and give you the highest possible offer, provide the best service and benefits that are of value to you, so that you CHOOSE to do business with us.
