Hi Janine,

It depends! Some local investors paying "all cash" will use a popular formula like this one:

Purchase price = Repaired Value x 70% - repair costs.


Repaired value =$100,000 (this is what the home would be worth in good, repaired condition)
Repair costs =$10,000


Purchase price = $100,00 x 70% -$10,000 = $60,000.

Of course, many other "investors" do not use this criteria, or even any "formulas." In fact, I know some which sometimes pay/offer as much as the full repaired value!
