Share information about the property by filling out the form and scheduling a brief phone call. Please have an idea of the outstanding amount for any loan payoffs, lien balances, HOA stipulations, etc.
Meet at the property to assess the condition and discuss things in further detail. I’ll do a walk through, possibly take photos, and make a cash offer.
If the offer is accepted, we will finalize our agreement and include a 7-14 day inspection period. Escrow is opened with the title company!
Closing day with the title company.
We will simply communicate via phone and email. Please have a trusted associate provide access to the property. I will be on the phone with you to answer any further questions once we reach the point of finalizing the agreement.
When it comes to selling a home for cash, it is important to make sure you are getting a fair price. The benefit of choosing Lord and Hearth Property Solutions is I have the market knowledge as a licensed real estate appraiser; I don’t make guesses based off inaccurate sites such as Zillow. Please bear in mind, the AS IS value is reflected in the offer price.
While I can’t speak for other companies online, I am a local real estate professional and aim for a win-win situation. I know there is a lot of concern about scammers and low ball offers. This is a big decision; I encourage you to consult a few investors so you feel certain you are getting the best deal and the best service. Trust your gut.
Absolutely. It is important to note that the closing date and time frame of the sale are negotiable between both parties. Selling a house for cash to an investor can typically take anywhere from five days to 30 days in today’s market.
Speedy Sale: Cash sales typically close faster than traditional sales with financing contingencies, as investors have the funds available to buy your home immediately.
Convenience: Selling to an investor can be more convenient than listing your home on the market, as you don’t have to worry about repairs, staging, or showings.
No need for contingencies: Since investors typically buy homes “as is,” there is no need for contingencies or repair negotiations, which can simplify the sale process.
Avoiding foreclosure: If you’re facing foreclosure, selling your house for cash to an investor can help you avoid damaging your credit.
No real estate agent fees: When selling to an investor, you can save on real estate agent fees, which can typically range from 3% to 6% of the sale price.
Cash offers: Cash offers can help you negotiate a better deal with the investor, as they are typically more attractive to sellers than offers with financing contingencies.
More certainty: When selling to an investor, you can have more certainty that the sale will go through, as financing contingencies are not a concern.
My goal is to operate with full transparency and keep you informed at each step during the process. The more information you are able to share with me upfront regarding the property and any liens, the more smoothly things will go. The condition of the property is a major factor in the transaction and no repairs are expected to be completed prior to the sale.
Lord and Hearth buys residential homes (single family detached, attached) as well as vacant lots. We do not buy commercial properties, mobile homes or timeshares.
Absolutely! However, if you are near the end of the foreclosure process and an auction has been scheduled, you will need to retain a lawyer to stop the foreclosure.
This is handled on a case by case basis; we would need to consider the lease agreement, payment history, and review the tenant screening criteria used to qualify the current tenants. Let’s talk about it!
Yes. Lord and Hearth can help structure creative financing opportunities. Our goal is to help you find the perfect property solution.
If we did not pay fair prices, people would not sell us their house. Many of the houses we purchase are below market value due to the property condition. If your property needs major repair work, we cannot give you top dollar for your neighborhood.
We always give fair offers with no-obligation, no hassles, and no fees.
It will not cost you anything to find out exactly how much we will offer for your house.
The offer price is determined by performing a comparative market analysis on the neighborhood, looking at recent comparable sale prices, and factoring in the details of your unique situation.
We do not charge any fees or commissions. The sales price that we agree upon will be the net proceeds that you receive on the day of closing.
Real estate agents list properties on the MLS for the highest price they believe the property can get, handle the staging and showing of your home, and market the property online. Repairs may be necessary, showings are frequent (if priced well) and the timeline can be long. Agents charge a commission that can ad up to several thousand dollars for this process and the buyers may or may not be 100% ready to buy.
That’s where we are very different. Lord and Hearth is actively looking to purchase homes with cash / verified funds in an AS IS condition. We try to make selling your house easy and low-cost. The goal is to help you find the perfect property solution.
You will have zero obligation to accept our offer. We will give you our offer. Then we’ll answer any questions you may have. After that…it’s up to you.
Lord and Hearth works hard to create an offer that is win-win for both parties. We want our offer to help you get out of a tough situation. We buy property in “As Is” condition to expedite the process and save you from having one more thing to worry about.
