Dunedin, FL (PRWEB) March 30, 2014
Homeowners desiring to sell St. Petersburg, FL homes quickly for a fair price and generous cash down payment acquired a new resource yesterday when a Tampa Bay area brokerage that buys houses announced the expansion of its Up the Down Special.
The new program was inaugurated recently in Holiday, FL, then expanded to Clearwater, FL, and is now available in parts of Hernando County, Hillsboro County and Pasco County, and may soon be available throughout the Tampa Bay area, the firm said.
This offer is limited to houses priced less than $ 100,000 and in excellent condition with no mortgage or other liens, said George Beardsley, President-Broker of Advanced Realty Team, Inc., a Dunedin, Fl-based brokerage boutique that offers a service for people who want to sell a house fast by buying the house from them.
But there is no requirement that you are living in the home, the firm said.
We buy estate homes by mail and we buy houses in foreclosure for cash and we buy houses needing work, Beardsley said. We can buy just about any house and in any condition–economic or structurally, he said.
Other brokerage firms list a house in the expectation someone else will actually buy and the brokerage firm will earn a commission for selling the house, the firm said.
Advanced simply and quickly buys the house and does not charge a commission, the firm said.
While this offer is limited to moderately priced, fully owned homes that need little or no repairs, the firm has other programs designed to buy homes under just about any condition, Beardsley said.
Advanced will buy estate homes by mail, for sale by owners, homes needing work in just about any condition, he said.
Advanced will pay cash for homes in foreclosure and homes upside down, where the mortgage is larger than the value of the home, he said.
Under the new program the firm will pay the current value assigned by Zillow.com with 20 per cent of the sale price going to the seller in cash, the firm said. There is no commission and the buyer pays all closing costs, the firm said. The balance will be paid to the seller monthly until paid in full.
If the agreed upon sale price is 10 per cent below the Zillow.com price, Advanced will pay 30 per cent of the sale price to the seller in cash and at 20 per cent below Zillow.com, the firm will pay the seller 40 per cent of the sale price in cash, the firm said.
Holiday was the test market for us and now the program is offered in three counties in the Tampa Bay area and we hope to expand the program throughout Tampa Bay as soon as possible, Beardsley said.
