Below I want to list some of the questions that homeowners who need to sell their properties ask us frequently.
What do I need to do to make Better Off Home Buyers buy my home?
You have just taken the first step, which is to communicate with us. Next, we’ll do whatever is needed to finalize the purchase of your home in Portland. As a part of the process. After this first contact, At your most convenient time, we’ll set an appointment to see your property.
“I’m just looking for information, I haven’t set my house ready for sale yet, I haven’t even cleaned it, hahaha”
“No problem, we can arrange an appointment anytime you like, but you don’t need to have your house ready for visits, neither clean it, nor paint it, nor fix it either, haha ”
” The truth is that my house needs some repairs, but I need to sell it soon anyways”
” As I said before, it is not a problem for us, one of the ways we work is buying properties as-is. If you need to sell your house fast, we can visit it.
Now, during the Covid-19 epidemic, we take every precaution to protect your health, your family’s, and our own health.
We follow all the Portland, the State health protocols and the CDC recommendations.
“Thanks for saying that, my husband and I were concerned that if we hired a real estate agent, we would need to receive strangers at home. Honestly, I’m afraid of the spread of Coronavirus. On the other hand, we know that the house needs some arrangements, we can not afford it by now”.
“Well, we are more than happy to help you, after visiting your house I can make you an offer for the property. If you accept it, we will close in less than two weeks. You don’t need to repair your house or do anything at all. My team will take care of all.
“You say that you can close in two weeks, I know escrow takes 30 days or more, why are you offering to buy my house and close so quickly?”
“Good question, madam. The escrow’s duty is to be a trust to guarantee that the parties involved in the purchase of a property are not deceived.
Generally in a traditional house sale through a real estate agent, home buyers have applied for a mortgage loan. The approval of that loan takes a long time and lenders need the guarantee that their money will be represented in the purchased house value.
But in Better Off Home Buyers’ case, the situation is different because we have the money to buy houses. We don’t depend on mortgage loans or lenders.
By law, a title office intervention is needed, but because we own our money the whole process is reduced considerably, that is why I tell you that in less than two weeks we will close, We have had transactions that have been closed in 7 days and others up to 2 days.
In Better Off Home Buyers we buy all kinds of houses and in the conditions they are. Continually we are contacted by homeowners who present us with a large number of scenarios.
I remember the case of a Portland metro merchant who was going through a divorce and needed to sell a duplex house that was occupied by tenants.
“Even though my wife and I are divorcing, we agree to sell the duplex and distribute the money from the sale equally,” the client told me on the first day we spoke over the phone.
That situation made me sad because as a husband and family man, I can’t imagine myself going through such an experience.
But even a divorce is part of life circumstances, so with much professionalism, the Better Off Home Buyers team assisted this client and his ex-wife. We went to visit the property, it was a small building with two apartments one on top of the other, they were inhabited by nice people who allowed us to enter their homes to gather the information we needed.
In less than 24 hours we presented them with a written offer, they were initially dissatisfied with our proposal, because they wanted more money for the property. We explain what our purchase criteria are and with all due respect, we invite them to request a professional appraiser opinion or to consult other real estate investing companies.
Three weeks passed and one day the client called me back asking me if we could talk again about buying the duplex. He told me that sadly the divorce judgment had already come out, but that by mutual agreement the complex was still available for sale.
He told me that in the midst of all the stress they had, they had talked to other real estate investors that buy properties in Portland, but we were the ones who had offered more money for their duplex.
The client understood that we wanted to visit the duplex once again, not to take advantage of his situation or to lower our offer, but to be sure that in those three weeks the property had not suffered any damage. Once we completed the inspection, we confirmed that our offer was still standing and 6 days later we were signing the purchase-sale documents.
We encounter different situations at work all the time. Our associates are professionally trained to offer fair help to homeowners who need to sell their houses.
In the Portland metro area, throughout Oregon and other states across the country, we buy homes that have been:
