Emotionally, it can be difficult. Very difficult.
Nevertheless, the question really has to be: What's best for the
loved one? Another consideration must be: What's best for the relatives and caregivers?
Often, the best answer is to sell the property. It's not doing any good sitting there empty. Or, worse, not only
vacant but a magnet for thieves and burglars...or vandals. And selling the property can generate some income, helping pay
for the continuing expenses of a relative or other loved one. And, as difficult as it may be, it lets everyone move on
to a new chapter.
However, even if you know that selling really is the best solution, you probably face some very
real problems. For example, the property often isn't in top-notch condition. I've seen properties that people have owned and
lived in for 20, 30, 40 or more years. They haven't been updated in decades. What was stylish in the 1960s or 1970s is badly
Plus, the properties haven't been well maintained. The carpet is often worn. The rooms need painting. The
roof may need replacing. The lawn hasn't been taken care of. The driveway has potholes. The faucets drip. There are needed
repairs, both big and small.
It's not unusually for the fix-up costs to run $30,000, $40,000,
$50,000 or more. You can try selling it "as is," and probably wait a long....long....time (especially in today's real
estate market) for it to sell. Or you can pour that $40,000 or $50,000 into the property, dealing with all the labor and crews,
to get the property into good shape. Then put it on the market and hope that it sells. (You ought to count on 1-2 months to
do the repairs, then up to 6 months in today's market to sell. You've spent $40,000-$50,000 or more and may have to wait half
a year or more to get that back.)
Plus, you probably don't have the time or energy to hassle with all that. You need to focus on more important
things--the well-being of your loved one and, frankly, yourself and your family.

Consider those benefits to you:
You Can Sell Quickly
We can buy in weeks, not months. You can move on with your life.
You Can Sell Without Worrying About Financing
Conventional purchasing, with "conventional" mortgages, has gotten far more difficult lately. Foreclosures
are up. Many lenders have gone out of business. The rest have tightened up their lending requirements. No more "100% financing"
or creative "Option ARM" loans. That means fewer sales, and more offers falling through. On the other hand, we have the cash available to buy your property.
You Can Sell In As-Is Condition
We'll buy your loved one's property even if it's in below-average condition. We'll take care of the work
that has to be done--the carpeting, painting, roofing, landscaping, new kitchen and baths. Don't worry about the condition it's in.
So, let's recap. You may be in a difficult place right now. The mental and financial concerns over a loved
one who no longer can live at home. The concern over doing the right thing for your loved one. The need to take care of yourself
and your family. Taking on the further burden of fixing up and selling your loved one's property just isn't something you're
