During these months after the coronavirus breakout, many homeowners have found themselves in need to sell their properties

Below I want to transcript fragments of a phone call we’ve received.

A tenant-occupied house purchase.

Sometime around May 2020.

We worked with a homeowner who had a second property with tenants, on our first phone contact, we got engaged in the normal questions about his property.

“How long have you owned that house?” I asked him.

“I’ve had that house for 7 years, still doing mortgage payments, at this moment it is occupied with tenants,” He said.

“Your property must be generating income, why do you want to sell it?” I asked.

“Well…Let me tell you, Scott, my tenants were 6 months’ rent behind before the coronavirus breakout. In February I filed an eviction form in court, but for now, everything is closed as you know.” He replied.

Yes, I know, and the moratorium eviction law is in effect,” I said.


The client asked me if we at  Better Off Home Buyer would be willing to make a fair offer for the property as-is. After we visited the house and did a complete inspection, we found out the property was in worse condition than we had imagined. The tenants had misused the house, inside it was dirty, outside the backyard was covered in recycle items and trash. 

Having into account all the details we presented our client with a writing offer. He responded to us the very next day, accepting the proposal.

Then, according to our process, in 7 days we were closing, so the client had cash in his hands soon. He told us that he would make better use of his money in another endeavor and that he did not want to be a landlord again.

Portland and Multnomah News

Multnomah County announced on July 7 that it is continuing in Phase I indefinitely to protect public health. In a statement, Chair Deborah Kafoury said: “We want to move cautiously toward reopening to avoid taking one step forward only to be forced to take two steps back. Phase II is a big step toward business as usual, and the virus is not sufficiently contained to allow us to take that step. Slow and steady will win this race.”  – Multnomah County web-site.

Hoping for a full reopening, the owners of restaurants and non-essential businesses have remained, after the announcement of Governor Kate Brown on August 28  that Multnomah County is no longer in the watch list

 “While no counties are being added to the Watch List this week, it’s still important that all Oregonians remain vigilant in protecting themselves and their friends, families, and neighbors from this disease. This means keeping up with physical distancing, wearing a face covering, staying home when sick, and washing your hands often,” said Governor Brown.

Forbearance Plans

The CARES act intends to help homeowners with difficulties to comply with their mortgage payments. Debtors can ask their lender for 6 months forbearance, after that time, they can request another 6-month extension without being charged with late payment penalties.

But in the long run, taking the so-called “Benefit” could be a move that later will work against the beneficiary.

Black Knight’s graphic

“According to Black Knight’s McDash Flash Forbearance Tracker, as of August 25, 3.9 million homeowners remain in active forbearance, representing 7.4% of all active mortgages. This is unchanged from last week (or the week prior). Together, they represent $828 billion in unpaid principal. Of these, 72% have had their terms extended.” Black Knight.

Many economists and real estate brokers believe that if in just 5 months after the Covid-19 breakout, homeowners don’t have money to pay their mortgage. Their situation would be worse if in 6 or 12 months the economy won’t recover. Which it could be ending in a huge foreclosure wave. 

Around 4.5 million forbearance plans are active today, an estimated 70%  will extend their forbearance term. At this pace, we can imagine that over 2.5 million homeowners will be in foreclosure by the last quarter of 2021.

Don’t wait until things get worse, you can save yourself months of stress. Selling your house to us allows you to take advantage of the home equity and saves your credit. 

with a pinch of patience and cash in your hands, later when the market colds down, you can buy another property at a better price.
