Selling a home can be a huge burden when you are trying to sell your home in the traditional way in this market. If you are like most people in the United States, values have declined in your neighborhood, and having to sell turns out to be a tough choice.

Too many people and young families are locked into a property that they cannot sell these days, because banks are offering foreclosed homes in the area at fire sale prices. At Home Front Real Estate, we think that you have a right to move on with your life without being chained to a piece of real estate that you don’t want or can no longer afford. Life changes, and its not your fault!

We help you by selling your home quickly and allowing you to move on with your life.

You can sell your home even if you are in any of these situations:

Traditionally in real estate sales, the seller pays for most of the cost of the transaction. Typical costs can be real estate commissions for both the buyer’s and seller’s agents, title insurance, escrow fees, real estate taxes, and often even fees for the buyer’s new loan.

In most cases, these costs will be in the range of 10% or more of the negotiated selling price. In today’s economy, money is tight for everyone. Particularly with FHA buyers, an additional 3% can be negotiated and come out of your sales proceeds. That means that for every $100,000 in the selling price, between $10,000 and $13,000 will be taken out of your proceeds at closing. $10,000 to $13,000 is a bitter pill to swallow for any home owner!

No wonder that many sellers simply cannot afford to sell under these conditions. If you’ve bought your home with 100% financing in the last 5 to 10 years you most likely don’t have enough equity to cover these costs. And even if you’ve put up a 5% or 10% down payment, you may still be “under water” due to the declining markets and no appreciation.

We don’t need your closing costs. That’s why we are the best solution for you. At Home Front Real Estate, we have solutions for many different situations – yours could be one of them! If your property meets our buying criteria, we can buy your home even if you cannot afford to pay for the cost of selling, and we will even cover any closing costs for you.

If you have already moved out of the house or live outside the area, your life is probably too busy to manage a vacant property. You are not alone. Handling a property like that can be extremely difficult and risky.

In many areas, professional thieves target vacant properties regularly and make their livelihoods stealing valuable copper piping and wires or utility units from air condition and heating systems, and even vandalize the property when they’re done.

When that happens you’re not only losing money but additional time is being tied up in insurance claims and paperwork. There are tons of things on a property that command your attention. When you can’t be there to keep a proper eye on it, your asset can quickly turn into a liability.

On top of it all, you risk liabilities that are not covered by your standard home owner’s insurance policy because the property is no longer occupied. Your uncovered losses can be just a drop in the bucket compared to the law suits you can face if someone gets injured on the property.

Even if your friendly neighbor has agreed to keep an eye on your property, you certainly wouldn’t want to risk her running into a group of unscrupulous thieves and get knocked down or worse. If your property sits vacant and you are looking to sell, time is of the essence.

At Home Front Real Estate we come to agreements quickly and close even faster. In many cases we can pay cash for the property and close without any restrictions or approval processes from lenders or banks, so you can go on with your life.

Many home owners list with an agent or realtor as the first choice of trying to sell their home. What they find is that agents often don’t market the property right and generate very few showings.

It can be difficult to find the right agent to sell your home. The truth is that a good portion of them are new to the real estate business and have only held their license for a few months or years, are inexperienced and don’t know the true values when they take on new listings. And what do they have to lose? After all, you are making the house payments when it doesn’t sell and sits on the market for months and months.

Quite frankly: Properly marketing your home for sale today is not as simple as it was a few years ago. Today, with the explosion of the internet, listing a house in the MLS and putting a sign in the yard simply isn’t enough.

That’s where we come in. We are not real estate agents. Our program allows us to buy your property directly. When we agree to meet with you, we are not looking to “sell” the home for you. If your home meets our buying criteria you will have a signed contract within 48 hours, and we will close very quickly or give you the time you need to move.

Mary and John purchased their new home 200 miles away because John had been transferred and need to start at the new location in March. The real estate agent who was listing their old home told them not to worry – once spring sales pick up he would get a buyer in their in no time.

In October, Mary and John were still making monthly mortgage payments on 2 houses – their new one and their old one, because guess what, it hadn’t sold yet.

Many people like Mary and John have no other choice than moving and leaving their old home behind for an agent to sell. They take the needed cash for the “double payments” out of their savings, sometimes even out of their retirement funds just to stay current on the mortgage and preserve their credit.

Meanwhile, they’re risking more and more that the money will never come back to them. Extended listing periods, declining markets, cost of upkeep and cost of selling all work against them. Wouldn’t you agree that John and Mary should at least take a look at a fast selling solution?

The problem with double payments is that you’re doing the right thing, but what suffers in the wake of double payments is your current home and your family.

If you’re in that situation, get started today. Submit your property today so we can take a look and let you know very quickly if it meets our buying criteria. If it does, we can close quickly and you can use your “double payment” money in more beneficial ways next month.

Any property that is behind in payments or already in foreclosure is on a slope of falling into the massive inventory of bank owned foreclosures. Savvy vulture investors find out immediately when you fall behind and will try to take advantage of your bad luck and steal your home from you.

The truth is, the longer you wait to act, the more pressure builds up on your negotiating power, and if you don’t do anything, you will eventually run out of options and lose the house to the bank.

Combine this situation and listing your home with an agent who just puts a sign in the yard and enters it in the MLS, and you have the perfect setup for failure. You simply cannot afford a “wait-and-see” attitude, but need to work with a pro-active direct buyer right now![Link to Sell Your House page.]

If your property needs repairs, you may have experienced that it is much harder to sell in this market. Sometimes it can even be impossible to find a buyer, because lenders will not approve a loan on a property that needs excessive repairs or is not to code.

And more often than not, buyers are simply picky, because they have so many properties to choose from if they are qualified to buy.

When you don’t have the means or the time to fix the property before putting it on the market, it can become unmarketable. With lending standards as tight as they are, if you have even so much as a broken door knob, you may be trying to market the unmarketable.

In some cases, if the city or county red-tags the house you can be subject to fines or even lose the property altogether if you don’t take care of the problems.

If you are in that situation, don’t despair – you are not alone! Let your fixup be our burden. We are in a position to pay cash for your property and deal with any repairs after we close and you got your money. Why not get started today and see if your property can qualify for our buying criteria!

If you’ve rented your property out to tenants, you may have been lucky enough to be unaffected by the economy. However, rising unemployment, job losses and income cuts are now so wide spread that even good tenants are forced to fall behind on their rent.

Maybe you have been nice enough to try and work it out with your tenants and just given them extra time to come up with missed payments, instead of just filing for an eviction. Let’s face it – some tenants just take advantage of your good nature.

Or you may be victim of “professional squatters” who tricked you into letting them into the property and just aren’t paying. – We’ve heard that can even happen with “family members” who abuse your goodwill and go for a free ride.

We are the solution to your tenant problems. If you’ve decided that enough is enough and now you are looking to sell the property, don’t worry about the tenants. In most cases, we can buy your property with the tenants still in the house, and deal with any problems after the closing. Save your money and save your health!

Start by submitting your property today and we will call you back within 24 hours.

What are you going through?

Foreclosure, divorce, loss of job, inherited an unwanted home or maybe you just need to downsize. Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure:

WHAT WAS ONCE A HOME HAS NOW BECOME A HEAVY BURDEN!

We know that when people are ready to sell their home and move on with their lives, the last thing that they want is to fix up the house to sell, schedule open houses and haggle over price. We take all that heavy lifting out of the equation by making an offer on the house exactly as it is.

You’ve got bigger problems to worry about. Let us take care of this one.
