Having gone through issues which many others have to deal with when trying to sell and to buy, we understand the frustrating nature of the present real estate and finance market. After finding a way to solve our problems through lease purchase contracts both for selling our property and for buying another, we decided to start a family business, being a team of husband and wife, with a mission: help sellers and buyers overcome the same issues we had, be able to set frustration aside and move on to enjoying a less stressful life.
I couldn't believe it when I found a company that offered what I am so enthusiastically offering myself now! I discovered a viable way to rent-to-own so I wasn't wasting money on rent knowing I would have to move sooner or later, and I could sell my home in a timeframe that suited my personal and financial circumstances to people I liked to be the new owners of a home I put so much into financially, emotionally and physically in a long and challenging total rehab. And that's why I am doing this!
I looked into these lease purchase deals, I carefully analyzed them, got professional advice, then I studied them and the whole process of engineering the right transaction and contracts which would offer satisfying solutions to property owners dealing with challenging sales and buyers requiring an unconventional approach to becoming home owners. Now I am ready to take over homes from motivated sellers and market them effectively to prospective buyers who can finally get on the property ladder.
We buy homes in Massachusetts and New England from sellers who want to sell quickly and/or for top dollar, with no fees, whether we negotiate a straight sale or a sale on terms.
We get our properties formally sold at the end of the lease period or sooner, when the lease-purchaser is mortgage ready thanks to our program and can close on the preagreed terms.
We qualify aspiring lease-purchasers with very strict criteria as buyers, not renters, in some deals submit to sellers for approval before occupancy with commitment to purchase.
We set up and manage the monthly lease of the property occupied by the lease-purchasers according to the terms of the contract, while following and guiding them to be mortgage ready.
We consider, buy, sell and lease many types of real estate properties, but focus more on move-in ready homes suitable for families, with 2+ bedrooms and 2+ bathrooms, even in financial distress, all over Massachusetts and New England.
When there are more homes on the market than qualified buyers, some homes go unsold even if there's nothing wrong with the home and it was marketed by a pro realtor. We are the alternative method of marketing and selling the unsold properties because we bring them to a broader market of buyers untapped and overlooked by conventional sellers and real estate agents, simply because they can't and they won't.
Our objective is to help sellers struggling to sell their property which can cause immense financial and emotional strain. An unsold home sitting on the market is bad enough for holding its value, in the cold season it's just worse. We also take over properties from sellers who appreciate the benefits of our programs and find them better for their needs, for fetching full price and even more in some of our deals.
You carefully plan out your life and your family's, then an unpredictable and unfortunate event happens throwing off all your plans. Now you have trouble making mortgage payments, although they were perfectly affordable, and you need a quick solution before it gets worse and your situation irreversible. We can relieve home owners of the burden of an unsustainable loan and provide a way out even when you thought you were stuck for good.
As buyers first and then sellers after buying, we are involved in every step of the deal with the seller and the deal with our buyer. In most of our deals we also handle the "lease" part of the lease-purchase deals. We have a network of attorneys and professionals whom we use as needed, especially in the preparation and signing of contracts. Having a broad range of contract solutions for home sellers and property buyers, it is our job and mission to find and offer the best way to overcome challenges that sellers and buyers encounter during the process. We also partner and work with many other investors across the country and use the services of professionals to design the best possible deal for all the parts involved.
In the traditional way of selling a property, which for decades has been dominated by the real estate army of agents finding a buyer (or a seller) and brokering a deal, the sale may turn out to be easy. However, aside from the fact that a sale is not guaranteed upon hiring an agent, in the fortunate event in which it happens and it goes through, sellers find themselves having to part with a significant amount of equity (in cash) needed to cover realtor fees. That amount is usually at least 5% and can easily be in the many thousands of dollars. Going FSBO may appear as a simple way to not incur in such hefty costs, but it definitely makes the sale a much harder process, without professional assistance in the transaction. When we buy a property from a seller, we usually pay the full listing price, sometimes more, and, since we are not realtors and buy for ourselves, we do not charge any brokerage fees. So most sellers cash in the full listing price, sometimes more, depending on the terms, anyway with absolutely NO realty service fees or any other.
Rent-to-own or Rent-to-Purchase in real estate, as most commonly used, are not what we refer to when we say 'Lease-Purchase'. We prefer to keep the terms distinct and refer to two different situations; in the former (rent to own, RTO, R2O, rent-to-buy) the purchase of a property is typically a possibility, with various levels of certainty depending on the level of commitment, especially financial; in the latter (Lease with Option to Purchase, LOP) the purchase is much more than a simple option and minds are already made up as to the final goal, which is the transfer of ownership. In the classic rent-to-own tenants tend to be such until they decide to become owners. In 'our' model of Lease-Purchase, the agreement is set up with the final goal of buying/selling a property already decided, and the lease period being preparatory to the completion of the deal, which really is, the sale.
We are husband and wife who had challenges as homeowners wanting to sell their home and as buyers wanting to purchase a new home for their new family which suddenly expanded with the unplanned blessing of twins. With numerous challenges and hurdles on the way, we can relate to both sellers struggling with selling issues and buyers wanting to get on the property ladder by purchasing a home and not wasting anymore money by renting. Unaware of the availability of the lease-purchase deals which we now do professionally, we were lucky to stumble upon the right real estate ad and look into it. We usually would've written it off and moved on, as too good to be true, but luckily we didn't. Fast forward a few years, we own that home and we now offer the same deals to sellers and buyers hoping to be that same lucky chance that we had and find better property solutions for all those who decide to broaden their options and look into our same type of real estate selling and buying deals. We have been trained by the same company which invested with us and we still work with; we also work with many other investors who specialize in lease-purchase across the nation. We are more than happy to explain how and why it works, keeping in mind that although we can offer a broad range of deals, there are a limited number of circumstances which may make our deals not the best solution, but to find out all we need to do is talk! Call 617-999-0269 and let's see how good a solution we can find for you, seller or buyer!
Family friendly homes sell the best, quicker and for the full value, and that means at least 2 bedrooms, but 3 beds would be an ideal minimum.
Based on the number of bedrooms, the bathrooms should not be much fewer to make the home a good one to sell well. At least 2 baths, with at least another 1/2 bath would be great, with at least one, even half, on each story, in multilevel homes. Storage and office rooms appear also to be a must nowadays, dedicated or adaptable, that would be a great scenario!
Unlike in the past, buyers like to see open spaces and a flexible layout with rooms allowing multipurpose, like mudroom and office, dining and living, kitchen and entertainment, bar and gym, and whatever other sophisticated combinations are possible within an open floor concept. A more modern layout is attractive to home buyers. Low ceilings, tight passageways and small rooms with use limited to one purpose are a thing of the past and a turnoff for today's average buyer.
The lack of heavily personalized features and objects, furniture and decorative items, makes it much easier for most prospective buyers to imagine the house as their home. Neutral colors are easier to create the impression of space and flow. They also help focus on the home as a whole, rather than room by room, while still allowing features and details to pop.
We deal, buy and sell, in all sorts of properties in all ranges, however, most are of a value between $200,000 and just over $1,000,000 because these are on heavy demand and go much more quickly, ranging from days to weeks, rather than weeks to months which is should be understandable for $2,000,000 homes and up. Properties in the higher ranges of price require a special approach and strategy, but location and other factors also matter. What is a high end home in one location, may be average in another. So it's that relative price-point what really makes the difference rather than the absolute price. We can analize and formulate a marketing plan which will lead to similar deals, including lease-purchase, seller financing and all the other deals on terms that we can apply to any real estate property, residential or commercial, land or buildings, high-end or typical.
Our fees to the seller are ZERO. Unlike sellers' realtors we do not provide a realty service of any kind, we acquire properties and find our own buyers no matter what type of deal, including the typical lease purchase agreements which are between us and the lease purchaser. Typically, seller gets the price net of fees, commissions and any other similar cost. realtors charge sellers typically, because that's standard in the conventional market, while we market properties differently. That's why we can guarantee that we do NOT charge any fees for brokering a sale, we leave that to real estate agents.
Although we operate alongside our partners, affiliates, associates and all other professional and private investors across the whole country, we independently buy and sell properties mostly in New England with our activities centered around the following areas:
It's the alternative to a conventional listing with an agent or a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) endeavour and particularly useful when the market, the property or the situation in general shows difficult challenges.
