This week one of the people we know from networking events reached out to one of our team, saying she was having some trouble marketing a house she had rehabbed. She asked if we knew anyone who might have ideas for her situation.
As it happened, we did. This wasn’t a house we would buy from someone and fix up—it was already fixed up and looking for the right buyer. This called for a Realtor®, not a rehabber. Luckily, as we’ve mentioned before, one of our team also works helping people get top dollar for houses that are ready for retail sale. We referred her to Carol, our team member who markets our houses for us.
That is one way we can help someone who contacts us get a house sold, the traditional way.
There’s another way, one where someone tells us about a property that would be a good one for the rehab market, but for one reason or another, we can’t take the project on. We’re happy to pass that opportunity on to another of our fellow real estate redevelopment friends. Perhaps the house is outside the area we work in, or we have all the work we can handle right now. This stuff happens, and that’s why we cultivate relationships with talented people who do what we do. We’ve been told of a couple of opportunities by our network lately, too, and we appreciate the chance to evaluate the properties to see if they will work for us. There’s always a right team for a particular house!
Of course, our preference is that we buy a house, help someone move a hard-to-sell property, fix it up, and sell it to another family. Yes, we like that very much.
Contact us or put us in touch with anyone you know who might want to talk to us about their situation. We like to figure out the best path forward, whichever option works.
