A recent study estimates that 47% of foreclosed properties are still occupied. When you first see that stat you may be surprised… but we’re not.

"My ex started to fix up one bathroom, but didn't finish...""The house needs a lot of work and is bigger than I need now. The roof is leaking. One of the eaves needs repaired. My ex started to fix up one bathroom, but didn't finish, so the walls and shower were never installed. The flooring is in bad shape, and it needs many other small repairs. I'm not able to fix it. Family members want me to fix it up, replace the roof, and sell it, but that's a lot of work. They aren't the ones who will be doing all that work! I just want to sell it to someone who can fix it, and move into a smaller place."
Thanks for buying my house as-is!
"Janel has been my angel in resolving a challenging situation...""Janel has been an amazing asset in working with me 3000 miles away to evict my renter, clean up the house and set up a doable contract to buy my house. She has been very professional and easy to work with. Janel has been my angel in resolving a challenging situation.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home."

"We're ready to cut back and retire soon. It's time to sell our 6-plex.""We manage our own properties and do all the work ourselves. It's hard to take a vacation. It's time to sell one of our properties and not work so hard. We're in our 70s now. We're ready to cut back and retire soon. We've owned this 6-plex for 12 years. We've made some updates, and tried to keep up on the repairs. It's generally in good shape. We've spoken to our CPA and have a plan."
"So you want to buy rentals?? We're happy to sell to you!"
"I was able to sell quickly on terms that made sense."
"I bought this property about 10 years ago, and rented to family members. After one of the family members passed, and the other one moved out, the landscaping had really gotten out of control.
It needed a LOT of yard clean up and some updating. I work a lot and just didn't have time to clean it up or to manage tenants. I wanted to sell on contract. I was able to sell quickly on terms that made sense.
I'm happy with the sale!"

"You were the first person to take the time to really listen to us and what we needed.""We wanted to fix up the house and sell it, but we didn't have the time or money to do that. Our family and friends are in South Salem, and I work in Salem too. It's hard to afford the commute from Woodburn each day. It's also hard to work on the house with 3 young kids running around, so a lot of things still need finished and fixed. Rather than get behind on the payments, we decided it was best for our family to sell it now as-is. It was a relief to know the closing date and be able to make plans. Now we can make a fresh start."
"You were so much nicer than the other companies we spoke with. You were the first person to take the time to really listen to us and what we needed. Then you were honest and stayed in contact through the whole process. Thanks for being so great to work with! We completely recommend you and your business to anyone."

"It's such a relief to no longer have to deal with property maintenance"
"Even though we like the tenants in our rental property, it was just time to retire. It's such a relief to no longer have to deal with property maintenance, collecting rent, and being a landlord.
We're happy with the terms, and the closing process was really simple and easy. Now we can really retire. You've been great to work with."
