Selling On Terms

Many of our customers prefer to Sell On Terms instead of taking a cash offer.

Why Should I Consider Selling My House for Payments?

Also known as ‘seller-financing’, this approach is a powerful tool that often yields higher profits for homeowners. Additionally, in many scenarios, it can substantially reduce tax liabilities, making it a financially savvy choice.

No Tenants, No Problems

Unlike a rental property, here, you don’t have to deal with tenants or leaky toilets. That is all the Buyer’s responsibility.

The property is the collateral for the loan. If the Buyer defaults on payments, you have the ability to foreclose. This is an excellent form of security for your investment, typically only found in real estate.

Tax Benefits

If you made a profit on the sale of an investment property, you may have a capital gain exposure PLUS depreciation recapture tax. This can eat into your profits significantly. Please seek counsel from your CPA on what tax benefits are available to you.

We purchase off market real estate direct from seller. We typically purchase at a discount due to situation or house condition and make it simple for a seller to sell off market with an all cash buyer. Once under contract, we most frequently disposition the property in 1 of 3 ways:

  • We will close and then fix the home up to make it more modern. We then sell the home in hopes of making a profit.
  • We will close and then fix the home up as needed to make it ready for a tenant. We then rent the home & retain in a portfolio.
  • We will sell our contractual interest in the property to another investor that will complete option 1 or 2 above. In this situation, our company earns income by receiving a fee from the new investor and/or by providing financing to the new investor and earning interest.
