Have you been thinking about selling your house and downsizing into a new home or apartment that better fits your current lifestyle at this time? But maybe your apartment is on a short fuse window that you need to put a deposit down or make a decision fairly quickly?
My name is Ben Souchek and I’m with Home Downsizing Solutions by the Sierra Group and we specialize in working with home sellers and buying houses according to a seller’s timeframe, so that the seller is more in control of that entire process.
Just last week we worked with an individual that had owned her home for quite some time, but she had the opportunity to get into an apartment, and kind of a specialized apartment for her. It was on the ground floor, which she wanted and it accepted pets, which was a a certain thing that she wanted to have happen. But she was under a tight timeframe to put a deposit down and either take the apartment or she might’ve lost the apartment.
We were able to step in. We inspected the house on Monday and agreed to an offer and a purchase price with the seller on that day, and we ended up closing on Thursday of the same week. So three or four days later, getting her cash in hand and making everything happen very seamlessly for her, so that she could make the transition from her house into a new apartment.
Some of the other benefits that she felt were of value to work with us were: One, we’d been in business, my company’s been in business for over 20 years. We have a great Better Business Bureau rating. We have some great reviews on Google. So she knew that we were a reputable company. She had been referred to us by a traditional real estate agent that I’ve known for a number of years, and she knew that we could be a trustworthy entity or company that could take care of her client for her, so she felt that she could work with us.
Some of the benefits that she appreciated were: the biggest thing was that we could move very quickly and buy very quickly. She could sell the house as is in its current condition. It needed some repairs and updates, but she didn’t have to worry about the repairs and updates to get it on the market to make it show ready. She didn’t have to worry about any individuals coming into her house that may or may not have been serious about buying her house. She could leave any or all of the stuff that she didn’t want to take with her to her new apartment, and we made it very flexible that if she needed some extra time, we could still close on the house, but she’d have access to the house for a certain amount of time so that she could move some things if she didn’t want to or wasn’t able to move them immediately.
So those were the reasons that she moved ahead. We were able to buy her house and she was able to get into that new apartment and make everything as stress free and hassle free as possible.
