Thinking About Downsizing
Homeowners downsize for a wide variety of reasons. The most common reasons we hear are: decreasing monthly mortgage payments and bills, desire to own a smaller house to reduce the burden of maintenance, relatives or adult children have moved out, and even people who want to sell their property to become renters and free up the proceeds from the sale for other things.
Whatever the reason, we get calls and emails from people in this situation often and we have a lot of experience buying properties and structuring purchases to afford people the time they need to find their next home and move on. If an owner has sufficient equity in the property, we are willing to structure creative financing options that offer additional benefits to the property owner.. If this interests you, give us a call or send an email and we can discuss options.
We buy properties directly from owners and if a property fits our buying criteria we can have a fair offer for consideration on the same day we receive a call. Since we are direct buyers, owners benefit from bypassing all of the hassles of a typical sale don’t have to pay any commissions or fees. On most transactions, we will even pay all of the closing costs.
We buy properties in as-is condition - owners do not need to do any cleaning or fixing. We have worked with owners in a countless number of situations (vacant, tenant occupied, structural problems, etc.) and we almost always find a win/win solution. We can close on the day of an owner’s choice and if there are other needs, we are flexible and will do what I can to help. All of our transactions take place with nationally recognized escrow and title companies to ensure a smooth transaction.
You may be thinking about selling a property, but might not be quite ready for any number of reasons. We understand. We are always available to discuss your circumstances and answer questions. We have dealt with many owners that were likely in the same or similar situations to yours and we can use our experience to help brainstorm options that you may not know exist.

"We're very impressed with how organized everything was with the sale. We had the time we needed to prepare for our move, and everything we said we needed was included in the purchase agreement, including being allowed to stay in the house for about 45 days after we closed escrow. Everything was fair, we didn't have to update or fix anything in the house, and Blake Buys Homes stayed honest and communicative from start to finish."
