It’s very common for people to ask how an all-cash purchase works and why homeowners would want to work with an investor that buys houses. For the most part, the traditional way to sell a home works but there are instances where it just isn’t a good fit. That’s where Jerred Buys Austin Houses fills the gap. Take a look at what we did for Annette.
I received a phone call in January 2014 and a nice lady name Annette wanted to talk about selling her home. At the end of the call, she mentioned that she wasn’t quite ready to sell but she would get back with me when the time was right.
Location: Capistrano Trail Austin, Texas
Home Description: 4 bedroom and 2 baths with a 2 car garage. It was a one-story traditional all brick ranch. The yard was impeccable and it was sitting on a ½ acre corner lot across the street from a park. It did need a new AC but cosmetically it was in great condition.
Our Unique Offer
We gave Annette a closing date window of 120 days. If that wasn’t enough time then we’d extend for another 120 days. We never contacted her to ask when she would be ready. We wanted to ensure that she had enough time to handle her family belongings and not feel rushed. Once she notified us that she was ready to close we pulled together an all-cash purchase and let our professional title company handle the paperwork.
How Quickly Did We Close
We offered Annette 120 day window to close because we didn’t want to rush her. 2 family members had died in the past couple of years and she had quite a few family treasures that she wanted to go through on her own time. She didn’t want to be pushed out of her house or rushed. She wanted to take her time to go through the items and have loved ones come by and pick from the family heirlooms. She also wanted to have a garage sale because she was moving to an assisted living community and just didn’t have the space to keep everything. She also wanted to spend more time at the church and with friends.
Why Did She Work With Us
She didn’t want to be kicked out of her home. First time home buyers can be difficult and they want to move in quickly. This would have put a lot of stress on her because she had the personal items from her family members and wouldn’t have had time for the garage sale and church donation. Plus, showing the home meant that she had to leave her home and let strangers walk through it.
I bet you can’t guess what Annette’s job was before she retired. Times up, real estate agent for Re-Max. It just goes to show you that a traditional home sale doesn’t work for everybody.
