Local REALTORS® help homeowner get $42,000 more at settlement!

We've all heard the commercials and seen all those popsicle street signs along the road way stating.

We'll buy your home CASH in a week!

These companies all have one thing in common.

"They want to get to you the homeowner before a good local real estate specialist does."

Two weeks ago a local landlord/homeowner wanted to make sure the offers that they were getting from the investors was a fair price given the house they wanted to sell was cosmetically in rough shape.  Per their words it was worn out inside. They had offers  for $130,000 to $135,000 for a single family with a garage in an older section of Woodbridge Virginia.

My knee jerk reaction was you can't be serious. 

The owner had replaced the siding, the windows, the hot water heater over the years. From the outside it looked pretty good. But they were right, the inside...a totally different story.

That's when we said, you still have options.We showed the owner how we could help them get what the Fair Market Value was for their home.  Condition does play into the value, however let me show you how we can help retain more money that what the investors are offering you.

"We listed the home for $189,900 on 4/15/2014. We received six offers in 72 hours and the home settled  in less than a week for $183,000.After selling costs, the seller received $42,000 more than the investors were offering them!"

The homeowner was in awe....


sell your home CASH in a week

Please, if you know someone who has a home in disrepair, or an estate home they are not sure what to do with or a rental property that has seen better days.

Chances are you may be able to sell it "AS IS" with no repairs and get rid of the real estate you do not know what to do with. Let me know what you need email me

Always remember to talk to a local REALTOR® before you agree to sell to a investment group or investor who is offering you cash and a quick closing. You may be leaving tens of thousands of dollars of equity on the table.

It's your money....
