Sometimes our parents own properties that for one reason or another they need to sell, but they might be unable to perform the renovations or deal with the necessary process to unload it. The burden will then often fall with the children, who have their own business to deal with, complicating the process even further. This is what happened to Clair, whose mother owned a property in Norfolk, VA.
The mother was unable to complete the selling process.
Claire’s mother was getting older, as was her home. It needed a few minor cosmetic repairs to make it presentable on the market, but unfortunately she was unable to perform them. She was looking for a quick and easy sale so that she could move to the DC area to be closer to her daughter.
Claire was shopping around for options, when she came across the Express Homebuyers site and decided to fill out the online “get an offer” form. We called her shortly after and got the process started.
We catered to her mother’s needs the entire way.
Since Claire was in DC and her mother was in Norfolk, we set up a conference call rather than an in-person meeting to avoid her mother having to travel. We explained the process and gave them an initial offer. They thought the offer was fair and agreed to allow us to inspect the home, so we sent a representative from VA beach to the house. The proposed repairs were confirmed, and we called Claire back the same day.
We agreed upon a final offer over the phone. Since Claire was going to visit her mother the next day, we emailed her the contract to take with her. Once they were together, they gave us a call and we went over the contract and answered any questions they had. Claire faxed the completed contract back the following day, and it was sent to a title company to be processed.
A week later, we had the title.
Once the sellers were ready to close, the closing attorney went to the mother’s house to avoid her having to drive to the title office. The paperwork was finished and the house had been sold, a few weeks after the initial contact and with minimal inconvenience to Claire and her mother.
