Following the passing of his brother, John inherited a two-bedroom house on Briarcliff Terrace in Germantown, MD. This condo was an hour away from where John lived. The father of two active kids, John didn’t have the time or energy to take on the added responsibility of managing the property. He had searched online for companies that buy inherited homes and come across an article in which Express Homebuyers was mentioned.
During his first conversation with Homebuying Specialist Andrew Littleton, John explained that the condo needed work. He also expressed he was not interested in becoming the property manager. Currently he was checking on the property once a week and the responsibility was beginning to wear on him. John and his parents were looking for an option that would allow them to sell the condo for a fair price. Andrew made him an offer over the phone and then set up a time to come see the property the following week.
The condo had been built in the early 1990’s and John’s brother had lived in the home for 16 years. Now the two bedroom, two bath unit needed significant renovations to get it in good selling condition. The double-paned windows needed replacing. The central air and heating unit was due for service. In the kitchen, the appliances and vinyl flooring required updating. The fridge and dishwasher were original from when the condo was built. Both bathrooms required complete renovation. And lastly, the carpet throughout needed replacing. It was a long list of repairs.
John wanted to sell the property fast and move on. After seeing the home and despite all the needed work, Andrew revised his offer and was actually able to offer John a bit more than his original price. John discussed the offer with his parents and signed the agreement. On John’s schedule, three weeks later, we closed on the sale.
