Paulina contacted Express Homebuyers on August 1st after hearing an ad on the radio and further investigating the company online. She and her brother were interested in selling their parents’ house in Alexandria and were calling on behalf of their elderly mother. Their father had passed away two years ago and the 4-bedroom, 3-bath property on Barry Road in the Windsor Estates neighborhood was too big for just her. They admitted the house needed some repairs and they did not have the funds to complete such updates.
When she called, Paulina spoke with Acquisition Manager Tom Parmentier. He learned that this property was unique in that it was bigger than most other properties of its age. Tom made an offer during their phone conversation. He then visited Pauline at the house on August 4t.h to verify the condition of the home. Tom was ready to sign a purchase agreement, however the family declined to accept his offer at that time.
Over the next few weeks, the family spoke with other investors about selling their parents’ house in Alexandria, but none of them was interested. They also talked to a Realtor who thought it would be too hard to sell.
Selling a Parent’s House in Alexandria Couldn’t be Simpler
Tom stayed in touch. After Paulina, her brother and her mom failed to obtain a higher offer with similarly favorable terms to what Express Homebuyers had proposed, they asked Tom to email a contract to them. It took them a few weeks to make up their minds and ultimately we received a ratified purchase agreement on September 10th. We purchased the property on September 30th without any issues or delay.
