In a perfect world, when you want to sell your house, you’d be able to simply put a sign in the yard and run a classified ad in the paper and be flooded with buyers willing to pay all cash for your asking price. Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works.. Selling a house in the real world involves a lot of stress, frustration, hassle, and expense.
Well, if you’re like most people, you already have enough aggravation in your life.

Although the main focus of this report is about using lease/purchase and owner financing to sell your house, we’ll also talk about other, more traditional methods.
If you’ve ever tried to sell a house before, you probably learned it can be a very complicated, time intensive, and expensive ordeal. In fact, buying or selling a house is generally the biggest financial transaction most people make in their whole lives. It usually involves a lot of terms and procedures that most people aren’t familiar with.
And even a small mistake can cost thousands of dollars.
Several factors determine how successful you’ll be in selling your house. So you need to carefully and honestly evaluate how your house (and your personal situation) stacks up to the competition.
You need to ask yourself (and honestly answer) the following questions….
How much money you want (or need) to get out of your house? Is that a realistic goal?
What’s the condition of your house?
What’s the condition of your neighborhood?
How much time do you have to sell?
What terms are you willing to accept?
How much (and what kind of) marketing will you do to find a buyer?
How accessible can you make your house to potential buyers?
How much money are you willing to spend to get your house sold (real estate commissions, bonuses, advertising, etc.)?
How much inconvenience are you willing to put up with while your house is on the market?
There are lots of different ways to sell a house…
You could have your home auctioned. Click here WHY SELL BY AUCTION? for additional information. We feel this should be the first option to look at before making any decision.
Depending on your situation (and how you answered the previous questions), you may have several good options available to sell your house.
You could have your home auctioned. Click on the AUCTION button on the left side for additional information.
You could use a real estate agent.
You could sell your house by yourself (for sale by owner, or FSBO).
You could sell to an investor buyer.
You could sell your house for all cash.
You could sell to someone who has to qualify (and wait) for conventional financing.
You could sell your house on a lease/purchase plan.
You could sell your house with owner financing.
Now, let’s take a best case scenario…
You’ve got a very pretty house, well decorated, with great “curb appeal,” in an extremely desirable neighborhood where the houses normally sell in a week or less. And, you’re willing to price it at the middle or lower end of the range in which other houses in the neighborhood have already sold.
And, you’ve got plenty of time it sell it. In other words, you aren’t facing a job transfer, financial difficulties, or an immediate need for the proceeds of the sale. If that’s the case, you’d probably be best off selling it yourself or hiring a real estate agent.
But, let’s look at the other end of the spectrum…
Your house isn’t one of the prettiest in the neighborhood, or the neighborhood isn’t the greatest, or your house needs some repairs, or you have very little equity, or you don’t have all the time in the world, or you’re struggling to make the monthly mortgage payments…
Or, any one of a dozen other reasons…
In a case like this, you’ve got a serious real estate problem; a problem that can easily turn into a terrible nightmare.
But, don’t worry. You’ll find solutions to just about any real estate problem in this report. Now, let’s look at one of the most important issues regarding selling your house…
The first thing to remember is that the market determines the price — not you. And certainly not a real estate agent.
In other words, your house is worth exactly what a ready, willing and able buyer will pay for it — not a penny more — not a penny less!
If you price your house such that it’s a “steal,” it’ll sell faster. But, if you want to get more for your house than other people with similar houses are getting, it’s going to take a lot longer. You’d be surprised at how many people overprice their houses and then can’t understand why it won’t sell. In fact, if a house takes longer than a few weeks to sell, that’s often the reason.
But, the price factor doesn’t stand alone…
It fluctuates considerably with the rest of the “deal.” For example, if you want an all cash sale, which closes quickly, you’ll generally get less than if you’re willing to wait for someone to arrange a mortgage.
If you’re willing to offer some owner financing, you’ll often get more for the house.
If you want to sell quickly, you’ll generally get less for the house. But if you can wait for that “one in a million buyer,” you may get more.
If you’re willing to invest the money to spruce up the house and make it the nicest one on the market, you’ll generally get more. If you aren’t willing to do any repairs, you’ll generally get less.
Don’t underestimate these price fluctuations.
Often, the selling price of similar houses can vary by up to 30 or 40 percent based on the above factors. And, the time it takes to find a willing buyer can vary tremendously, too. In fact, the time it takes to sell similar houses in the same neighborhood could vary by several months (even as much as a year or more) based on the above factors.
OK, now let’s examine some of the different ways of selling your house…
First, we’ll look at selling through a real estate agent.
If you’ve got a very pretty house in a great neighborhood that you’re willing to price very competitively, and you’ve got plenty of time to sell, you might want to use an agent.
But, if you’ve only been in your house for a couple of years, and you bought it with a low down payment mortgage, you may not have enough equity in it to pay all the closing costs and a real estate agent’s commission.
The biggest advantage of using a real estate agent is that he or she will put your house in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). This is a computer database that almost all licensed real estate agents subscribe to, and consult, when looking for houses on the market.
When your house is listed in MLS, any agent looking for a house in your area and price range can find it. And, if that agent happens to have a buyer looking for a house just like yours, he or she can show (and maybe even sell) it to them.
A real estate agent will also usually put a “For Sale” sign in your yard.. He or she may hold an open house or two in your home, and may even place some small ads in the local paper or real estate magazines.
A real estate agent will also handle the negotiations between potential buyers and you, and take care of the paperwork and closing process if he or she gets your house sold.
And they do it all for a fee of about 7% of the selling price of your house.
If your house sells for $100,000, the first $7,000 goes right to the real estate agent. Sure, that sounds like a lot, but if your house sells quickly, it’s actually a great deal, because you won’t be making several months of mortgage payments on a house you don’t want.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
But, if the real estate agent takes several months to sell your house, it’s not such a great deal because you’ll still have to pay that big commission on top of the thousands of dollars of additional mortgage payments.
Unfortunately, most real estate agents are woefully unqualified to really sell houses. Sure, they’re licensed by the state, but their training consists mostly of how to comply with all the regulations regarding helping someone sell real property for a fee. They learn about what they can and can’t say, and what they can and can’t do…
But they don’t learn much about advertising and marketing.
Don’t get us wrong. We’re not talking about all real estate agents. There are a lot of very qualified agents out there who work extremely hard for their clients and do a great job.
It’s just that those real estate agents are really in a minority.
An agent lists ten, twenty, even fifty houses at a time, and none of them get enough of the agent’s personal attention. Some agents never even see some of their client’s houses again after they’ve listed them. Often, an agent lists a property, gets it into the MLS, puts a sign in the yard and waits for something to happen (while he or she is out hustling up some more listings).
Sometimes they place an ad or two, and sometimes they run an open house, but generally they just wait — and wait — and wait. And if you’ve got a pretty nice house at a hot price, you may get a few people to come see it in the first couple of weeks..
But get this… your agent doesn’t even show your house most of the time.
Other agents who you’ve never even met and who know little or nothing about your house do most of the showing. In fact, most of the time, these other agents show your house to prospective buyers without having ever seen it themselves.
So, how much “selling” do you think they can do? How can they point out the special things about your house to buyers if they’re not even aware of them?
And to top it all off, many of the “buyers” agents run through your house aren’t even serious prospects.
Often, agents will run several poorly qualified (or even disinterested) “buyers” through a house just to create the illusion that they’re doing something.
Add to that all the people who love to look at houses for a hobby, or to get remodeling or decorating ideas. They contact local real estate agents and pose as “buyers” just to make the agent show them a bunch of houses.
Talk about a pain in the neck!
From the day you list your house with an agent, you’ve got to keep it neat-as-a-pin every moment. You can hardly live in it, because you never know when an agent will call and ask to show it on a moment’s notice. And every time an agent wants to show your house, you’ve got to get out of the house.
They don’t want you present when they show it.
So, if an agent does manage to arrange a bunch of showings of your house, you have to tolerate dozens of total (and sometimes frightening) strangers tramping through your home and poking through your drawers and closets.
Perhaps the worst part of it is that they all silently pass judgment on you, your life-style, the way you keep house, and every other aspect of your life. And most of them aren’t even seriously considering buying your house.
No wonder most of the houses listed by real estate agents seem to take forever to sell while the owners are stuck making huge mortgage payments month after month!
Well, that’s the good and the bad of using a real estate agent.
If you’ve got a fabulous house with great “curb appeal,” that will practically sell itself, and you’re willing to price it very competitively, you may be able to get it sold quickly through a real estate agent. In that case, this may be your best option.
Sure, you’ll pay a 7% commission, but if your house sells quickly, it’s worth not making a bunch of extra mortgage payments.
If your house isn’t the showplace of the neighborhood, you could still sell your house through an agent. But the longer it takes, and the more people the agent runs through your house without getting it sold, the more money it’ll cost you in the long run — and the more aggravation you’ll have to put up with.
And remember, if you don’t have enough equity in your house to pay the closing costs and real estate commission, you could have to come to closing with a big fat check. In other words, you’ll be paying even more money just to get someone to take your house off your hands!
Another option would be to try to sell your house For Sale By Owner (FSBO)…
There are some advantages to selling yourself over using an agent For example…
You won’t have to pay that whopping commission.
You maintain a much higher degree of control when you sell it yourself.
You can easily structure some of the more creative kinds of deals.
You can lower the price and still net about the same amount of money.
You know more about your house than anyone else, so you can point out the good things about it better than an agent could.
Of course, there are several disadvantages, too…
How many houses have you bought and sold in your life?
One? Two? Maybe three? You haven’t had to solve even a fraction of the typical problems that always seem to pop up — right before closing. Do you really want to risk having a potential buyer slip through your fingers, just because you’re not used to dealing with (and solving) every little detail of a real estate transaction?
Plus, how good are you at negotiating big deals? Unless you do it for a living, you may end up costing yourself thousands of dollars.
Remember, buying a house is a big decision for most people and it’s easy for them to get “spooked.” At the first sign of a complication or small problem (like a lien, necessary repair, or one of the other typical closing glitches), they’ll run like a scared jackrabbit.
Then you have to start all over again at square one — it’s a frustrating experience.
Plus, when you try to sell yourself, you still have to put up with dozens of strangers trampling through your home — only now you’ll have to be there yourself. And with some of the nuts walking the streets today, that’s a scary thought. You never know if they’re really interested in buying your house, or if they’re just “casing you out” for a late night return visit.
If your house is one of the prettiest houses in a really hot neighborhood, you might be able to just put up a “For Sale By Owner” sign in the front yard, run a simple classified ad in the paper, and sell your house in a week.
But, frankly, it rarely happens that way..
In fact, FSBO houses generally take a lot longer to sell than those listed by real estate agents. Remember, they have the MLS, you don’t.
So, if your house isn’t in an area where potential buyers are driving around looking for houses, you just won’t get the exposure you need to find the right buyer.
And finally, if your house has any problems at all (needed repairs, poor location, or even colors or carpet that buyers don’t like), it could take months, maybe even a year or more to sell.
So, the bottom line with respect to going the FSBO route is that it can often prove to be penny wise and pound foolish.
So what is the best way to sell your house?
If you’ve got that pretty house in a pretty neighborhood that’s in high demand, you’ll probably be best off going with a real estate agent, or selling it FSBO. But, if your house doesn’t fit that description (for any one of several reasons), you should probably look at some other alternatives.
First of all, consider the time it could take to sell your house, and whether or not you have the luxury of time on your side.
If any of the following factors fit into your situation, you’ve got a much more difficult real estate problem which may require a more creative solution than the typical real estate agent or FSBO route.
You don’t have a lot of time to sell your house because…
You just got a job transfer…
A loss of a job is resulting in financial difficulties…
You’re anxious to move and don’t want to face the headaches of an extended selling period…
You are getting (or recently got) a divorce, and you want to sell the house fast so you can get on with your life…
You inherited the house and want to liquidate it for fast cash…
You’re struggling to make your payments and want to save your credit name…
You’re facing foreclosure and don’t want to be forced into bankruptcy…
Or any other reason you want to sell quickly…
In any of these cases, the time it takes to sell your house could be far more important than the price you finally get for it. Remember, every month it takes to sell means another mortgage payment, another month of property taxes and insurance, and another month facing whatever problem is causing your headaches in the first place.
But, just having a time constraint isn’t the only problem facing a lot of people trying to sell a house. Here are some more factors which may require you to find a more creative solution than the typical real estate agent or FSBO route.
Your house is hard to sell because…
The neighborhood isn’t in much demand because of either location, or condition of the surrounding houses…
Your house needs a lot of repairs. This could be anything from painting, bad driveway, windows, carpet, etc….
The decor or layout of your house is unique. Most buyers prefer subdued, neutral colors and a traditional floor plan…
Your house is competing with brand new construction at around the same price…
Your house is of an age when people are worried about major problems cropping up (new roof, new furnace, air conditioning, etc.)
Your house is on a very busy street. People want to get away from noise and traffic when they go home. Plus, a busy street scares parents with small children.
Your house is too close to an undesirable or commercial site (water treatment plant, factory, shopping center, etc.)
Your house is in a lousy school system. This is critical to parents.
You’ve got to look at your house with a critical eye.
If any of the above conditions exist, you’ve got a double problem. First, the above conditions by themselves generally reduce the price a buyer might be willing to pay for your house — sometimes quite significantly! Secondly, any of these problems (even with a big price reduction) causes your house to take a lot longer to sell. And if you’ve already got a time deadline, you’ve got an even bigger problem!
So, what can you do about it?
Well, a lot depends on your financial situation, and why you need to sell your house. For example, if you’ve absolutely got to move (because you already took a new job, got transferred, bought a new house, etc.) you could just list it with a real estate agent and go ahead and move.
But then, every month, as you make out two huge mortgage payments (most people find that tough to swallow), you hope and pray that someone will buy your old house the next month — and the next — and the next. Of course, that’s assuming you can even qualify for a new mortgage with the old one still on your back.
But leaving your house vacant just compounds your problem. If you haven’t been able to sell it with you keeping it looking as nice as possible, it’ll be even tougher to sell vacant. Plus, with nobody living there, lots of things can happen. The local troublemakers could climb through a window and tear the place up, a pipe could break and flood the place, or who knows what.
Frankly, that’s more worry and aggravation than most people need in a lifetime. So what do you do when you have a hard-to-sell house?
Selling a hard-to-sell house takes three important steps.
First, you’ve got to fix any of the fixable problems that may be keeping a house from selling. This includes anything from a simple paint job, to a complete rehab job from the roof to the basement.
If you’re already in financial difficulties, that may not be a viable option. Fixing up a house for sale can cost thousands and thousands of dollars. And even though it may be the only way to get it sold, you won’t get all the money back out in the sale.
Next, you’ve got to price the house very aggressively. Sometimes this means taking a significant loss on the house just to get rid of it and protect your good credit name.
Another good tactic is to offer creative financing terms. This may mean offering owner financing or a lease/purchase option. This makes your house available to a much larger group of people. Plus, if you can offer very attractive terms, it may be even better to a buyer than just lowering the price. Sometimes you may have to do both!
And finally, you have to market the house extensively. When we sell our houses (we buy and sell houses all the time), we often spend up to a couple thousand bucks to find the right buyer.
But just spending money on marketing isn’t enough. It’s got to be good, solid, hard hitting marketing that gets potential buyers to sit up and take notice.
Here’s a better solution — a way to get rid of your problem quickly and easily, with a minimum of aggravation…
If you’ve got a house you want to sell, and you don’t have the time to do it the traditional way, or simply don’t want to go through the headaches and hassles of dealing with all the problems of the hard-to-sell house, here’s another alternative…
Sell it to us! Often we’ll pay all cash for your house and close within a matter of a few days — not the weeks or months most people need.
We specialize in buying and selling houses in the Triangle and other areas. We buy houses in all price ranges and in any condition. If your house needs a few repairs or even a complete rehab, we can buy it (often for cash), handle all the necessary repairs to put it in show condition, and then sell it.
A lot of houses really don’t need repairs, but have to be redecorated in order to sell. This can cost a fortune.
Things like painting (inside and out), new carpet, new fixtures and tile in bathrooms and kitchens all cost a lot of money. But, they often mean the difference between a salable house and one that will sit on the market for ever.
And in those cases where an all cash deal won’t work, we have several other ways to help you out of your problem.
Sometimes, because of the price or market conditions, a cash purchase just won’t work. But don’t worry. In cases like these, we still have solutions.
Depending on what your needs and goals are, we have several plans which might solve your problem quickly and easily. For example, if your main problem is getting rid of your house payments, we can often buy your house subject to the existing mortgage and take over your payments.
This quickly gets the financial pressure of the payments off your back.
If we don’t have to pay cash for a house (and tie up a bunch of our working capital), we can often offer a better price in the end.
For example, if you’ve had trouble selling because of the condition of your house, and you have little or no mortgage on it, we may buy it from you with owner financing.
With owner financing, we can usually pay a better price.
Then, instead of tying up our money to buy the house, we can put it into the repairs (it often takes thousands of dollars). Once we’ve turned it into a showplace, we aggressively market it, and generally get it sold in a couple of weeks.
Sometimes we’ll structure the deal such that you get paid off as soon as we sell the house. But sometimes, in order to make your house available to more buyers, we’ll set it up on a mortgage with a three or five year balloon payment. This gives a potential buyer some time to refinance it with a conventional mortgage. Creative financing like this can often mean the difference between selling or not…
And it can add thousands to the price you actually get for the house.
Of course, you have complete financial protection with a lien on the house (just like a bank or mortgage company) but you don’t have to put up with any aggravation, repairs, or maintenance.
Here’s another option, one of our most popular programs…
If your house qualifies, you may be able to take advantage of a new program which usually allows us to pay a higher price for your house — and make your mortgage payments while waiting for the sale to close!
Here’s how it works…
First of all, to qualify, you’ve got to have a nice house which doesn’t need repairs or redecorating, and is in a decent neighborhood. Also, your mortgage payments need to be reasonable for the value of the house. And, your house must be in the mid to upper price range (generally $100,000 or more).
If your house meets these conditions, this program may be perfect for you. And in some cases, it may be the only way to sell your house without taking a huge beating.
For example, we often run into people who bought a new house between one and three years ago. It’s a brand new house in a beautiful new development. Then, for any one of a variety of reasons they need to sell.
The reasons could be…
Job transfer… Loss of a job… Taking of a new job… Divorce… Marriage… Need a bigger (or smaller) house… Death of a spouse… Financial difficulties… Simply want a different house… Or any other reason.
If you’re in this situation, you may have a big problem.
They’re still building brand new houses in the same development, or in similar developments close by. People look at your house, and even though it’s been perfectly maintained and is only a few short years old, they still see a “used” house..
And to make matters worse, the cost of building a new home hasn’t risen much in the last few years, so they can often buy a brand new home (and pick their own colors, fixtures, etc.) within a few bucks of what you paid for yours.
In this case, there are only a few things you can do…
If you put a large down payment into your house when you bought it, you may have enough equity in it to just lower the price and sell it the traditional way..
This will get you out of the house and get the payments off your back.
But you’ll pay dearly for it. By the time you add a real estate commission, closing costs, and the huge price reduction necessary to attract a buyer, you could end up losing tens of thousands of dollars. Nobody wants to lose all their equity, but if you have enough equity in your house, at least you have a choice.
And if you don’t have that much equity in your house, your options are more limited. You may have to come to closing with a great big check. That’s even worse than losing equity. Unfortunately, most people don’t have the cash in the bank to write a check like that. Some of them just walk away and let the bank foreclose on their house — this often forces them into bankruptcy.
Avoid this at all costs! It’s the absolute worst thing you can do.
It can take ten years or more to recover from something like that.
Here’s a better way out of your problem… It’s called our lease/purchase program!
Here’s how it works.
We’ll sit down and agree on a price for your house. Often it’s full market value. Then we’ll execute two important documents, a lease and a purchase option. These two agreements combine to quickly and easily eliminate your problem.
You see, since we buy and sell so many houses, we’ve built up a list of good, solid people who want to buy a nice house like yours, but for a variety of reasons don’t yet qualify for a conventional bank mortgage. Don’t get us wrong. These are good, reliable people. It’s just that they need a little time to qualify.
Often it has nothing to do with their credit or income.
Perhaps they’re just a little bit more extended than the bank likes, and they’ve got to finish paying off a car loan (or some other loan) before they can add a mortgage.
Or, many of them are self-employed.
In a case like this, the bank may require three years of tax returns. Well, if their business is only a year or two old, they can’t qualify — no matter how much money they actually make!
Or, sometimes they’ve been in business for long enough, but the tax returns don’t really show their income in its most positive light. That’s because, in order to reduce their taxes, they report as little income as they can. Sometimes, they’ve had one or two small credit problems (years ago), and it’ll take a few more months for them to fall off their credit report.
These are just a few of the reasons some very good, reliable people can’t get a conventional mortgage. But, they still want to buy a house, and they’ll pay dearly to anyone who can help them.
That’s where we come in…
We help them get into their own house by doing a lease purchase deal for them. So we solve your problem and theirs at the same time. You see, we buy your house with the lease/purchase plan, and then sell it to the buyer the same way. When we do this, you have complete security because you don’t give up the title to your house until the final sale actually closes.
We take over your mortgage payments…
We take care of all maintenance…
We guarantee all repairs…
Then, as soon as the new buyer qualifies for a mortgage, we close the sale and you get paid off in full.
It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
This is a proven program which has helped countless people out of some very difficult real estate problems. And even if you don’t have a serious problem selling your house, it’s often your best choice.
With our lease/purchase program, you quickly and easily eliminate all the problems, stress, inconvenience, and headaches involved in selling a house in today’s market.
Since this specific program is fairly new, you probably have some questions. Here are some of the advantages of the program and answers to the most commonly asked questions…
First a review of some of the advantages….
You get a top price for your house without endless haggling…
You get immediate debt relief — you no longer have to pay mortgage payments on a house you don’t want.
You remain on the deed. It’s still your house until the final sale is closed.
You still get all the tax benefits of owning the house (check with your own tax advisor).
You don’t pay any real estate commissions (This, alone, can save you thousands of dollars)
You get a legal, binding lease, which helps you get a mortgage on your new house — even before the sale of your old one closes.
You no longer have to worry about maintenance or repairs. Our new buyer takes care of it, and we guarantee it.
You don’t have to worry about vandalism, storm damage, broken pipes, or anything else. By having someone move into your house, it’s like having a private security guard. (But instead of paying him, he pays you!)
You get someone into your house in a few days or weeks instead of the several months it often takes with old conventional methods.
You don’t have to worry about whether you have an assumable, non-assumable, FHA, VA, or any other mortgage. It works with all mortgages.
You don’t have to worry about having you insurance canceled because your house won’t be vacant.
Eliminates the cost and hassles of advertising your house for sale.
Here are the answers to some common questions…
How do I know you’ll make my mortgage payments on time?
That’s easy, we’ll make the payments directly to the mortgage company. And, as you know, if we miss even one payment, they’ll immediately send a notice to you.
Or, we can pay a third party escrow company who will then make the payment to the mortgage company. And again, if we miss a payment, they’ll immediately notify you.
By the way, of all the lease purchase deals we’ve done, we’ve never missed (or even been a day late) on a single payment.
What’s the difference between your lease/purchase and just renting my house out? I don’t want the headaches of being a landlord.
We don’t want to be landlords either, but there’s a huge difference. When you rent your house out, you’re dealing with a renter. And as you can imagine, a renter doesn’t care about your house, and won’t take care of it.
But, with a lease/purchase, you’re dealing with a buyer. It’s just that the closing is a bit delayed. These people have a buyer’s mentality. In their minds, they’re buying the house, not renting it.
In fact, they’re responsible for all repairs and maintenance themselves.
Plus, before we let one of our buyers into the house, we collect a substantial, nonrefundable binder deposit towards the purchase.
What if something happens and the buyer doesn’t buy my house?
That’s easy. We’ll just put another buyer in your house and start over. But, to tell you the truth, it doesn’t happen very often. Remember our buyers have to pay a significant, nonrefundable binder deposit before we let them move in. They don’t want to lose it.
And in the rare case when we can’t find another buyer, you still own your house, you’ve had someone else making all the payments and taking care of all the maintenance.
Meanwhile, you’ve got all the tax benefits, and the benefit of all the added appreciation. You simply can’t lose!
What if the buyer tears up my house?
Although we can’t guarantee the buyer won’t damage your house (since we won’t be there living with them), we can, and do guarantee to take care of any repairs. Remember, you deal with us, not some buyer you don’t know.
How long will it take for the final sale to close?
That’s a tough question to answer. Sometimes our buyers get their financing in line in just a few months, other times it can take a year or more. But, we make our profit after your house finally sells, so you can bet we’ll do everything we can do to help the buyer get a mortgage quickly.
Why don’t I just go ahead and list it with a real estate agent?
Of course, that’s always an option. But, look at the costs versus benefits…
A real estate agent won’t make your payments while you wait for your house to sell. A real estate agent won’t guarantee the maintenance of the property while you wait for your house to sell. And a real estate agent won’t handle any repairs.
With our lease/purchase program we do all of that! Plus, if you’re lucky enough the get the house sold through a real estate agent, you’ve got to pay him or her a big fat fee. On our lease/purchase program, it’s the opposite.. We pay you!
What if I need to qualify for a new mortgage on a new house and my old house isn’t sold yet?
That’s usually not a problem. Most lenders allow you a 75% credit for the lease payments on the old house towards your debt ratio.
For example, let’s say the payments on your old house are $1,000 and you’ve entered into our lease/purchase program. Most lenders will count that as if you only had a $250 payment. That’s often enough to reduce your debt ratio to a level where you can still qualify for your new mortgage.
If you’ve been trying to sell your house (or even thinking about it), you should give serious consideration to our lease/purchase program. In many cases, it’s simply the best, fastest, and most financially sound way to sell a house in today’s real estate climate.
