As we get older, we typically begin to live less gaudy lifestyles, especially once we’re approaching retirement. Among other things, this simplification of lifestyle often entails downsizing into a smaller home. Cynthia wanted to downsize from her home in Bowie, MD, but she didn’t have the money to purchase another house, nor the time to get her current home in sellable condition.
She didn’t have much time to sell.
Cynthia knew exactly which home she wanted to move into. However, after her husband had passed away, she found herself incapable of performing upkeep and maintenance on her property. Because the home wasn’t in the best shape, Cynthia was convinced that selling it through the traditional market would take too long, and her desired house would no longer be available by the time she had found a buyer.
She needed a way to sell her home quickly, but didn’t know how to do so given the current condition of it. She then saw an Express Homebuyers commercial on TV and called to get more information on the process of selling to us.
We made her a cash offer in just one phone call.
Cynthia thought that the offer was fair and decided to proceed with the process. She agreed to allow us to inspect her home the next day before making the finalized offer. When we performed the inspection, we found that the home was actually in better condition than what Cynthia had described over the phone, and decided to increase our offer. Needless to say, Cynthia was very pleased and we set a final settlement date and price.
We signed the contract that day and had the title work processed. A few weeks later, we closed on the home. When we closed, we gave Cynthia a $10,000 advance on the settlement so she could move and put a deposit down on her new home. The day she moved out, we wired the rest of the money for the deal and it arrived in her bank account the same day.
