Q: How does the process work if I am ready to sell my house?
A: It's easy: you email or call us and tell us about your house and what you would like to
happen. With this information, we can present to you multiple offers on your house. All
you have to do is tell us which one you like best. In many situations, we can finalize the
sale within 1 week.
A: We do not charge any fees or commissions for our services. Also, all our offers
include us paying closing costs to avoid any surprises to you at closing.
Q: How much time will I get to move out after you buy my house?
A: We work around your schedule for moving, whether you want to move
in 1 week or 1 year.
Q: Will you pay my moving expenses?
A: We have many programs that include our paying for your moving expenses.
Q: Will I get a fair price for my house?
A: We can tell you what your house is worth in today's market if you have the time to
list it for months, or if you want a quick sale. There are at least two prices for any house,
the cash price or the price with financing. Offering owner financing will always get you
the best price. We have many different ways to purchase your house. If you are
flexible, there is a way we can buy your house quickly. If we can not come to a mutual
agreement, we can just part friends. We are happy to give you some suggestions even
if we don't end up buying your house.
Here are the 3 most common ways we purchase houses.
1. All Cash offers
Our cash offers depend on the condition, location and loan balance of the house. The
offers may be approximately 10 to 15 percent lower than what you may get going the
conventional route selling through a Realtor only we buy in 7 days or less, not 7 months.
When we buy your house "subject to" the existing mortgage(s), liens and or judgments
stay in place. We step into your position and start making your monthly mortgage
payments. We are also responsible for the ongoing utilities, lawn care, repairs, property
taxes, liability, and advertising costs of the property--so you have no ongoing expenses
or worries. You're probably wondering, what if we don't make the mortgage payments?
That has never happened with us since our credibility is very important to the future of
our business. Also, we use an attorney who draws up the documents to protect you.
3. Owner Financing
Owner financing is becoming more popular with sellers since the market has
changed. We can make you payments over time for your equity, and at a higher
interest rate than what the savings accounts at banks can offer you. It provides you
with a steady stream of secured income.
Q: Where will the closing take place?
A: Our Title company has branch offices in Central Florida. We will use the branch
closest to you. If you don't live in Central Florida, they can arrange to do closings by
Q: How can you buy so many houses and pay cash for many of them?
A: We have access to private funds and equity lines of credit. The availability of these
funds allow us to purchase 2 to 3 houses a month. Eventually the houses that are
purchased are either re-financed or sold to pay back the original funds borrowed so they
are available for us to purchase more properties in the future.
Q: I have tried everything: for sale by owner and using Realtors. Why won’t my house
A: Today, price is a major determining factor as to whether someone will purchase your
house. Many buyers are sitting on the sidelines waiting for the market to bottom out
before they buy. You probably can expect this market condition to continue for the
next few years.
Q: What if I am behind on my mortgage payments?
A: CALL US IMMEDIATELY. Every day that passes eats away at your valuable equity.
Q: What if I owe more on the mortgage than my house is worth?
A. There are solutions. The most common one is working out a short sale with your
lender. We have been successful in negotiating a sale price lower than the mortgage
payoff with lenders. Call us and we can explain the process.
Q: Why should I bother selling to you, when I can just let the house go into foreclosure?
A: Mortgage and credit experts say that having a foreclosure on your credit
report has the worst affect on your credit. It will reduce your credit score by over 250
points. You may have to wait up to three years to qualify for a mortgage again at a
reasonable rate. And, poor credit makes it difficult for you to rent a house or apartment.
Plus, your credit affects more than just your housing. One homeowner wanted our help
to stop her foreclosure because she was applying for a new job and they would not hire
her because of her bad credit. Generally, you pay more for everything when you have
bad credit: insurance premiums, car loan interest, and credit card interest are typically
much higher for those with lower credit scores.
Q: What is a “Short Sale?"
A: A Short Sale is when the seller and buyer work together and offer the lender less than
what is owed to them for the mortgage balance. Short sales show up on a credit report
as a “pre-foreclosure in redemption” status and can result in a credit score reduction of
100 points or less (vs. 250 points for a foreclosure). After the sale, the mortgage may
show up as “discharged”. People who successfully complete a short sale may also
qualify for a mortgage at a reasonable interest rate in as little as 18 months (vs. up to 3
years for a foreclosure).
Q: How do I know if I qualify for a “Short Sale?”
A: It really depends on several factors. The best chance at negotiating a short sale is
* the property is in poor condition and in need of many repairs
* there is a high loan balance as a percentage of the value of the house, and
* there have been extensive personal hardships that have caused you to fall
behind in your payments.
