The Situation

This home belonged to Liz R.’s mother, who had lived there for many years before her death. Liz lived in California with her family, and though there were other siblings, there was no family left. Liz was nominated as the family member who had to deal with their mother’s remaining possessions, as well as the sale of the home. The home’s current condition and location discouraged any realtor from taking on the property, and Liz had no time to fly back and forth from California to supervise the repairs and upgrades that needed to be done.

The Problem

Liz’s mother had lived in the home alone, so the home had been neglected for a long time. There were popcorn ceilings, and the interior had not been painted for years, plus – there were gouges and damage to the walls in almost every room. The entire house was not only dingy, but yellowed with cigarette smoke, which made the entire place smell. The whole home was completely outdated, especially the kitchen and bathrooms, the most crucial selling points for a property. While the condition of the home was problematic, an even worse issue was that it backed directly on to Rural Avenue in Tempe; a notoriously loud and fast six-lane roadway. Every person who lives also knows that Rural Avenue runs right by State University and Sun Devil Stadium. This house was close enough to both that the traffic to and from sold-out football games added to the congestion and noise behind the home. In terms of marketability, the house might as well have been next to a railroad track that was in the flight path of an airport.

What Fair Property Buyers Did

On the advice of friends, Liz called us from California, told us the property had a lockbox with a key, and asked us if we would be willing to go take a look at the property, and advise her on what needed to be done to it in order for us to consider purchasing it. We went to the property the next day, analyzed the home’s condition, the location, and the surrounding comps in the neighborhood, and made Liz a cash offer for the home – as it was, with no other effort, upgrades, or repairs needed on her part. We also did not require an inspection or appraisal, and told her that we would handle the closing costs for her.

The End Result

Liz was relieved that she would not have to attempt to restore the home from a distance, and that we were willing to buy it in spite of its location. She accepted our offer, but was worried about all the items still left in the house, especially a few things that she and her family wanted to keep. We volunteered to put these things in storage for her, and take care of the rest. We handled all the details of the transaction through email and phone, and were able to close in 10 days. Liz flew in once to sign papers and make final arrangements, and so we could give her the check for her mother’s home. A death in the family is always a sad and painful event, and – when an empty home is left behind – it can be a truly overwhelming burden for many families. Fair Property Buyers can help ease a stressful situation like this quickly and simply, by making the transition as easy as possible. Whether its helping you handle the sale of your property from another state or country, or taking care of whatever possessions may be left, we will purchase your home in any condition, no matter where it is, and under any circumstances, no matter how difficult they may be.
