Jean and Frank owned a small home in the Congress Heights neighborhood of Washington, DC that they wanted to sell fast. After doing some shopping around, they realized that it would take too long to sell on the open market. They needed a company that could purchase their house, and ended up contacting Express Homebuyers.
They first contacted us in early October.
After giving us a brief overview of the property, we gave them our initial offer over the phone. They thought it was fair, and decided to move forward with the process. We told them that we’d need to inspect the property, so we set up a date about a week later to do our walk-through.
They met us to let us inspect the property on the agreed upon date. After finishing, we found the property to actually be in better shape than we had previously thought, and raised our offer. Given that they were happy with our previous offer, they happily accepted and we moved on to the necessary paperwork.
That’s when we ran into problems.
When we received the title work back it had some issues. It turns out that there were liens mistakenly still on the property. The previous title company had missed them. You can’t buy a home until all liens are paid off so we had to get to the bottom of this. This is a hitch that might stop other home buying companies from completing the deal. Thankfully, we have a full legal team with the capacity to take care of all of these sorts of problems. They worked out the issue and updated the title. Once everything was up to date we finished the paperwork and ended up settling very soon after our inspection.
