Our most recent client Marlene recently inherited a property from her sister and she wasn’t sure what do next. When she called us she let me know that she had just inherited a home in Orange County but lived out of the area. She had not seen her sisters house for a few years but knew that it was going to need some work before she sold it. She had some concerns and wanted to know if we could help her address them.
- Could we help her clean the house out? YES! We let Marlene know that we would be happy to help her clean out the property as part of the service we provide. I told her to go through the home and take whatever she liked and that I would handle the trash disposal after she was done.
- Would she need to repair the home? Her sisters house had significant termite damage as well as a bomb shelter that she wasn’t sure was permitted and she didn’t have the time or means to fix the home up. We let her know that as professional investors we buy her house just the way it is! Although purchasing a home with a bomb shelter would be a first we are very used to purchasing homes just the way they are.
- Could we close fast? She was only down for the weekend and wanted to make sure that she could take care of everything before she left. Absolutely! We let her know that our typical transaction averages around 14 days and that as long as there were no major hiccups we could close as fast as she liked.
- Could she come back and see the house after it was updated? It was her sisters house and he wanted to make sure that the home would be fixed up beautifully and that her sister would be proud of it. No problem. We let her know that we would give her a call as soon as the house was finished so she could come check it out.
After we were able to address all of her concerns Marlene wanted to know what the next step was. We let her know that someone would be out that same day to walk through the house and at that point we would be able to make her an all cash offer with no obligation. As long as the offer made sense for both parties we could proceed and close in 14 days !!! As they say the rest is history!
