Q: Why should I work with Fair Share Properties to sell my investment property?
A: Fair Share Properties is a real estate service firm based in Tacoma, Washington. We’ve been involved in hundreds of real estate transactions in Pierce County, King County and Thurston County. Our team members have helped homeowners navigate complex situations, including estate sales, investment sales and foreclosures. We have the expertise to help you through any situation and the ability to expedite your sale by virtue of our unique, all-cash, as-is offer approach.
Q: What kinds of property does Fair Share Properties deal with?
A: We will purchase any type of property in the Tacoma area, from single-family homes to multi-family dwellings. We can purchase one investment property or an entire portfolio at once. And we will take your property as-is, even if it has been deemed unsalable. No challenge is too great for us!
Q: Can you ensure that all transactions are completely private?
A: We certainly can. Our team of professionals will go out of their way to make sure that every step of the home selling process is kept in the strictest confidence. We understand that selling your home can be a sensitive subject and that you might prefer that friends and neighbors not be aware of the details. We consider ours a people business and we always put the needs of our customers first.
Q: Why should I be interested in your all-cash, as-is offers?
A: Well, why wouldn’t you be? Our ability to make all-cash, as-is offers only gives you the distinct advantage when you are selling your home. We’re not bound by the intricacies of financing, so we can pay up front, right away. This can be particularly advantageous if you are facing a financial deadline of your own, so that you can get the cash you need, when you need it. And we won’t be put off by homes that might scare other buyers away, because we buy every property as-is, no matter how rough its condition.
Q; How do I know you won’t try to low-ball me?
A: Making an offer that is lower than it should be would be unethical and we pride ourselves in doing right by our customers. At the same time, our as-is purchase policy makes that practice completely unnecessary. We have the expertise to take any property and make the necessary renovations that will allow us to get the most for our money and we can see the potential in a property despite its run down condition. For this reason, we will always make our offers based on that potential so that you are getting a fair amount for your home.
Q: Am I under any obligation once you’ve come to visit my home?
A: Absolutely not. We charge no fees at any time and you are never obligated to accept our offer. While we’ll go out of our way to make you a fair offer, you always have the option of turning us down, no strings attached.
Q: What if I’m not ready to sell right away?
A: That’s not a problem for us. We always have the funds available to close, so we can wait until you are ready to proceed with the sale, no matter when that might be. We understand the need for flexibility, particularly when selling an investment property so we’ll do everything we can to make it easy on you, even working with you to match the timing of your 1031 exchange.
Q: Can I complete the sale without my tenants’ knowledge?
A: Yes, you can. We keep every detail of your transaction private and confidential to make it easier on you. We will, of course, need to see the property first hand, but we will make all arrangements to your specification so that we don’t worry your tenants.
Q: If I do sell, what do I do with my tenants?
A: In most cases, we prefer that you don’t alarm the tenant until after we have negotiated the sale and opened escrow. We can then work with you and the tenant or property manager to arrange a move out date according to the current lease in place.
Q: Why should I deal with you instead of a traditional realtor?
A: Traditional realtors charge a commission for selling your home, so you’ll not only have to face closing costs but this extra expense as well. Because we buy your home directly, there is no extra paperwork or fees. You’ll get the cash you need, up front, as quickly as possible. It makes the home selling process as problem free as possible for everyone involved.
