Orca Home’s Cash Home Buying Process Explained

Orca Home’s Cash Home Buying Process Explained

The process of selling your home is a huge life event, often accompanied by numerous complexities and stressors. For many of our customers, this might be the first time they’ve had to sell a home and there is lots of new information to take into consideration. Recognizing the challenges that can come up in this process, Orca Homes has set out to redefine the cash home-selling experience by putting our customers at the center of all we do. With a unique blend of local real estate expertise and a transparent and relaxed approach, we aim to make the selling process as clear and smooth as possible. We love to tell our customers that working with us is essentially hitting the easy button on selling your home.

Our promise is to be straightforward, not pushy, and always pick up the phone when you call. We won’t judge, and have a compassionate approach to every individual situation. If you’re looking for a company that approaches business with empathy, transparency, and a moral compass, you’ve come to the right place.

Our Simple and Transparent Process

At Orca Homes, we like to keep things clear and simple. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of our cash home buying process: 

  1. Gather info: We understand that selling a home for cash is likely a new experience, and expect you to have lots of questions. Don’t hesitate to call or email us with any questions you might have, or feel free to visit our FAQ page [hyperlink] where we address some of our most common questions.
  2. Schedule an appointment: Call us any time to schedule an appointment to come see your home. This appointment would be our home inspection, where we would see what repairs and upgrades we would need to make to the home if we were to buy it. This part of the process allows us to give you an accurate, truly as-is offer with NO contingencies. Before coming out, we will do our homework and learn as much about the home and its value from studying county records and recent sales for homes like yours in your area.
  3. Review and Accept the offer: Once we see your property in person, we then put together our offer. We calculate this by looking into what we would sell the home for once it’s upgraded, subtracting our costs to upgrade it, leaving margin for profit. Take your time to review the details, and feel free to ask any questions. Our commitment is to ensure you’re comfortable and informed throughout the decision making process. We are likely the only cash home buyer who writes our contracts truly as-is, with no inspection or feasibility contingencies, giving you total peace of mind that this is an offer that we will deliver on.
  4. Choose When to Close: Your timeline to close is in your control. We want to be flexible and move at your pace, whether that’s two weeks or two months from when the contract is signed. We will come up with a plan that works around your needs.
  5. Receive Your Funds: Once the contract is signed and the closing date is confirmed, we will open up the transaction with a Title & Escrow company, just like it is done in a standard on market transaction. We first wire our earnest money, and once we get towards the close date title & escrow will hold and then distribute the funds, along with coordinating all signings and notary services. They can even arrange for a mobile notary to come to the location of your choosing to sign the closing documents, adding even more convenience to the process.

Our goal is not just to buy houses; it’s to simplify the entire process for you and empower you to hit the easy button. 

No Home is Too Challenging for Us

We’ve bought homes in every condition imaginable. Whether your home needs minor cosmetic repairs or major renovations, or you need help settling an estate or selling a home full of unwanted belongings, we’ve comfortable and experienced with all types of scenarios. Our team understands that every home has its unique challenges, and no problem is too big or small for us to handle. You can trust us to provide a fair and honest assessment of your property, and we’re committed to finding a solution that works for you. So, whether your home needs a little work or a complete overhaul, rest assured that we’re able to get you an offer and help you navigate the selling process with ease.

Is Selling with Cash Home Buyers Better?

There are plenty of advantages to selling your home to a cash home buyer:
Speed & Ease→ No time will have to be spent getting your home ready to go on market. You can leave any belongings behind that you no longer want, and we will handle the rest. We can close in as soon as 2 weeks from the date you sign the contract, but the timeline is up to you if you need longer. With an on market listing, you have to spend lots of time preparing it to go on market, making changes and upgrades suggested by the real estate agent, and then wait to see how long it takes to sell on the market with the risk of price reductions if they price it too high
Certainty → Our offers are written truly as-is, so you know exactly how much money you will get, when you will get it, and that we offer a 100% close guarantee. In other words, we write our contracts in a way that doesn’t allow us to back out, which means we will close on your house just like we say we will without renegotiating the price on you. With a traditional on market listing, you don’t know what the buyer or lender will find in their inspections and require you to fix, nor will you know for sure how long your property will be on the market or if you’ll have to do price reductions.

Our Approach: Building Trust in Home Selling

The process of selling a home can be intimidating, especially when considering a cash home buying company. We know why cash homebuyers have a bad reputation. The industry is full of people who scam and exploit, and fail to deliver on their promises, even sometimes backing out on the day of closing when your bags are packed. Ensuring you navigate the sale of your home with a trustworthy partner can make a world of difference.


Our passion lies in building trust with our customers. We listen to your needs, explain the process transparently, and prioritize the ease of the transaction. We don’t take advantage of you, and instead offer fair prices, simplify the process, maintain professionalism, and stay true to our word. 

Our customers appreciate our honesty, and we’re proud to be considered a reliable source in the industry. If we’re not the best fit, we take time to explore alternative options, ensuring you can make informed decisions about the sale of your home.
