You are trying to decide if you should put your home up for short sale. You have left in a hurry, leaving no time to fix up the issues to get the home ready to be put on the market, nor do you have the time or the energy to put into a home you are being forced to sell. It could be the case you have finally been harassed and pushed over the edge by the bank and you just want out. The loan modification that once looked so hopeful isn’t sounding nearly as appealing as it did on TV and you don’t want to be in the same boat you’re in at this moment, three, four, five or six years from now….Or you could be the unfortunate landlord left with a property that tenants have destroyed, fines continuing to pour in from the HOA and the city. Your agent keeps telling you the utilities must be on for a home to be inspected and you know that the majority of buyers will pay to have the home inspected before buying it.
It could be that today while driving down the block to pick up your children from school, you start to notice how every vacant home you see has broken windows, overgrown grass, or green pools. You fear squatters may claim your home, you have already heard about the vandals stripping homes for copper, air conditioning units, cabinets and counter-tops. Not having these items, will make buyer s unable to qualify for an FHA loan – the most common type of financing – leaving you with even less options to sell.
Unfortunately what most sellers don’t know is depending on the bank, no matter what anyone tells you, a short sale can take
12 months or more to close. Also, remember when you are signing the seller documents at closing the bank will make you sign forms agreeing to pay taxes on the difference between what your house sells for (short sale) and what you owe. This can be pricey, meaning it’s better to obtain a higher offer for the home you are selling.
So what do you do next? You are the homeowner that has the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom in a quaint little neighborhood that just needs cleaning, you cant afford to put the utilities on, and the pool is a mess. Good news my friend, your Guardian Angels have arrived. We deal in homes from $40k and up, and we pay all of the utilities and upkeep on the home while it is on the market.
Here at Vacant Home Rescue, we are not waiting for the market to improve itself, we believe the start of seeing a change in the market, is getting sellers the best offer they possibly can on their homes. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s not. The service is 100 % FREE for sellers. After agreeing that we can work out a way to help your home, we transfer the utilities into the company’s name, we then take a list of much needed repairs including paint touch ups and steam cleaning of your rugs, we assess any green pools or pools that need fill up and maintenance. If pest control is needed we handle it, all at our cost. We then assign a Guardian Angel to watch over your home, keeping it show ready the entire time it is on the market. Your Angel will carry their own renters insurance covering the value of the home, personal liability, water/property damage, slip and fall, fire and flood. The homeowner as well as our company will be listed on the policy in case something is damaged and left for repair. For your peace of mind, your Angel is fully screened and background checked. Your Angel will not be classified as a tenant and will not have any pets. Your Angel only needs 15 minutes’ notice for all showings so they can take a walk, leaving behind snacks and ice water for your buyers. Your Angel also agrees to random weekly home checks every week by their area director. Your Angel will cover all of the utilities and keep the home’s front yard looking fantastic.
The value of using Vacant Home Rescue’s FREE service, comes in the care the company and our Guardian Angels have for homeowners and listing agents. The good of the seller is what really counts and to throw our weight behind something that will improve the condition of the housing market in Arizona, albeit one house, one neighborhood at a time, is an extremely rewarding ethic. We want to be part of the overall solution to seeing a change in the market, while building our own organization on goodwill, hard work, and dedication to our home sellers.
