grey-house.jpg

So, you have finally decided to sell your house.  Like most people, you talk to some local real estate agents and settle on one who you think will be best at selling your house for the most money in the least amount of time.  Everything is planned out except for one thing.  The unexpected!  Even the best plans rarely work out without some curve balls.  The problem with real estate is that those surprises often cost time and money.

Houses Wanted eliminates surprises so you can sell your house quickly.  You may wonder how they eliminate surprises?  Very simply, they take out all of the variables from a transaction that historically are the cause for costly delays.  They will buy your house as-is, whereas traditional buyers order inspection reports and then use every issue your house may have to renegotiate the price or even cancel the transaction.  Houses Wanted will make a cash offer, they have their own money.  Traditional buyers need banks and other lenders to approve a loan in order to obtain financing to purchase your house.  Houses Wanted will buy your house very quickly, in days if you desire.  Traditional real estate transactions can drag on for months.  Call Houses Wanted today and learn how fast and easy selling a house can be!

Houses Wanted Buys Long Island, New York Houses, ALL CASH, With Tenants!

14393153228_86b20caf66_o.jpg

We see this scenario frequently, you have a house that you want to sell, but there are tenants living at the property.  Maybe they have a lease that can’t be broken or sometimes you just don’t want to take the financial risk of having a house sit vacant for possible months at a time while you attempt to sell it. The house is probably in need of some repairs if it’s been rented for any length of time. Selling a rental property through traditional means is not easy. Any showings need to be coordinated with the renters, and that is if they are even willing to let you show the house. Real Estate agents may have issues with the condition of the property.  Renters sometimes get “Spooked” when they learn that the property is for sale and may move out prematurely, leaving you with a big expense on your hands.  There is an answer!

Three Common Reasons Why A Real Estate Deal Falls Apart

1. Inspection Report:  

There may be issues with your house that you are aware of but sometimes a sale looks all but certain and then the dreaded inspection report brings up issues that become a sticking point and the deal falls apart.

2. Funding Issues:  

You try to be prudent by only accepting offers from credible buyers with a pre-qualification letter from a lender.  After two months in contract your buyer is NOT able to secure a loan to purchase your house.  What happened?  The truth is if a buyer has to rely on third party financing there is always a risk the deal will not fund.

3. Buyers Remorse:

Yes, you have a contract and at a certain point it may cost the buyer some money to back out of the deal but that will not stop a buyer who simply changed their mind.  Until you close on the sale of your house and the funds have been transferred to your bank a deal is never complete.  Many transactions fall apart at the eleventh hour.

Houses Wanted is a cash home buyer with decades of experience.  Houses Wanted purchases with cash and does not rely on third-party financing.  Houses Wanted follows through on EVERY offer they make.  Call Houses Wanted today.

My Friend Warned Me Not To Accept This Offer On My House!

Real Life Customer Review: 


My house was in bad shape and needed many repairs.  I listed the house two times with a realtor and it would not sell.  After pressuring me to make repairs to the house that I could not afford I decided to sell the house myself.  It was not as easy dealing with the constant phone calls and "lookers" but finally, I received an offer. I was thrilled! I shared the good news with my friend but she was not so enthusiastic. She was suspicious that they made a full offer on the house despite the condition it was in. I ignored her concerns as she tends to be a pessimist at times. About two weeks after signing the contract the buyer started complaining about the house and wanted a lower price! 

I was very upset because he knew the condition of the house when he made the offer. When I told my friend she said this is a common tactic that many disingenuous buyers use, they first lock you into a contract and then start trying to bargain. Many times they don't even have the means to truly purchase your house.  All the back and forth with the buyer lasted for weeks and it was exhausting, it got to the point I could not believe anything they said. Finally almost six weeks later I was able to sever my ties to them. I called Houses Wanted on a recommendation, they made a fair offer on my house and we closed a couple weeks later.  It went so smooth and they did exactly what they said they would.

Selling My House with Termite Damage!

Real Life Customer Review: 

After a personal financial crisis I realized that I need to sell my house.  I hired a local real estate agent and put the house on the market.  My house was in need of some repairs and although the property seemed to generate much interest most potential buyers were not serious.  As the months passed I became more discouraged and then a short while later things got even worse!

A potential buyer was looking at my house, he went to move a piece of firewood that was stacked outside against the wall under a window and when he did he discovered termites.  Upon more inspection it was realized that the wall of the house was also infested.  The situation was severe!  I got a couple of repair estimates and they were all in the thousands and I was told it would likely be much higher as they tore down the existing wall.  I did not have that kind of money. My real estate agent was no longer willing to show the house and I was left alone.

I thought that I would never sell the house.  Having lived on Long Island all my life I remember a company a friend used many years ago.  I searched the internet and called Houses Wanted.  I could not believe it when they came to my house and made a cash offer.  I disclosed the issue with the termites but they had no concern.  They bought my house quickly.  They did not even request and engineers report, they just bought it AS-IS.  It was incredible.  Thank you so much!!

How Much Time Do I Have To Sell My House?

We are living in very uncertain times. The national debt is at record levels. Global markets are unstable and there is social and financial instability worldwide. Leading economists have been warning for some time now that a large scale financial crisis is very probable. The Federal Reserve has been manipulating interest rates which sooner or later will have staggering consequences.

You have heard the wise saying "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush", still holds true today.  If you have a house to sell don't waste precious time.  No one knows what the future holds but we all know there are good times and there are bad times.  Keep one step ahead and call HousesWanted today and turn your house into cash!  You may be very glad you did.

Do You Like Surprises? "Perhaps, But Not When I’m selling My House!”

There is an old saying, CASH IS KING!

I now understand more than ever how true that is. I listed my house for sale and a short while later I had a signed contract in hand. The buyer had a pre-approval letter from a well known lender and all was good. As time progressed I could sense something did not seem right and then the buyer requested more time to close. The buyers agent assured me "everything was on schedule, just a small hiccup".  But days turned into weeks and communication slowed.  Finally two months into our contract the buyer revealed that they were denied financing!  The deal fell apart and I lost valuable time!

When HousesWanted.org makes and offer on a house there aren't any surprises. Peter does not need approval from a lender.  He does not need engineer reports and he does not need to meet purchasing requirements of third parties.  With every offer from Houses Wanted comes the assurance that there won't be any surprises. Now that is something you can take to the bank!

How to Find the BEST Realtor on Long Island

Like many people, if you live in New York and you have a house to sell you may be wondering how to find the best real estate agent to work with.  Realtor's always like to claim they are the best, as a homeowner you are going to want to see evidence of this.  Besides working with someone who is able to sell your house quickly you want a trustworthy and friendly person to entrust the sale of your house to.  Here are some questions to ask a potential Realtor.


1. How long have they been a real estate agent? 

This is not to say that a new agent can't be ambitious and good at what they do, but if someone has been in the business for a long time there is a good chance they are well connected and have the experience to plough through potential obstacles.

2- Are they a top producing agent? 

Many times the best of the best stay on the top producers list year after year.  They do this because they sell more houses than others. These people tend to know how to get the job done where others fail.

3- Have they had many listings in the area your home is located? 

Many agents do best selling homes in neighborhoods they are familiar with.  Ask for a list of houses they have sold in your area along with any current listings.  Make an attempt to talk to any of these homeowners and ask them about their experience working with the agent you are considering.

4. Before you contact a real estate agent call Houses Wanted! 

You will receive a no obligation cash offer on your house. Houses Wanted has been buying houses on Long Island for decades and is rated A+ with the BBB.  It's smart to explore all of your options before tying yourself down in a contract with a real estate agent.  The best part is that if Houses Wanted does not think that your home is a good candidate for a cash sale they can refer you to an experienced real estate agent so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Houses Wanted never charges any fees or commission.  Call Houses Wanted today!

Here are some reviews from Long Islanders we've worked with in the past: 

I was afraid selling my house would take a very long time

When our mother passed away my sister and I were overwhelmed with the responsibility of settling her estate.  We were still grieving our loss and almost immediately we were bombarded with things we needed to take care of. 

Selling my mother's house felt like the biggest burden.  We didn't know where to begin.  We started to sort through her things but the house needed much work, the garage, the attic and basement were all filled.  We had no place for everything.

My sister had told me of HousesWanted through a mailing that she had received.  We called them and spoke to a very understanding gentleman.  They met us at our mothers house, although I was a bit embarrassed at the condition.  They put us at ease and said the needed repairs and condition was not a problem at all.  They bought my mother's house as they promised.  The biggest relief for us was that my sister and I did not need to clear and clean everything, we sold the house as-is.  We are forever grateful of the kindness and assistance we received from Houses Wanted in our time of need.  Thank you

I sold my house faster than my neighbor

By coincidence my neighbor down the street and I were both selling our houses.  Carol's husband had a job transfer.  With the kids all grown up my husband and I were selling our house to move into a smaller house. 

Having had a bad experience selling a rental house some years ago my husband and I wanted to try something different.  We called on HousesWanted and they quickly made a cash offer on our house.  My husband and I thought it over and decided it was fair, especially considering that we were not asked to make any repairs.  Although Houses Wanted could close almost immediately we needed some time and they were happy to accommodate us.  Four weeks later we were moving into our new house.  Looking back my friend wished that she had thought of calling Houses Wanted also as it took many trying months to sell their house.

Selling a House The Easy Way...FAST!

Why won't my house sell?

Selling a house with a real estate agent usually starts with a smiling agent promising that they can sell your house and probably for top dollar.  A short while after having you sign a contract that you will pay them 5-6% commission and can't fire them for six whole months their cheery expectations may begin to erode.

After a month or so when you house has not sold it somehow becomes your fault, it's your ugly carpet, outdated counter tops, older appliances. Your house needs paint, the lawn is not green enough and there are not enough flowers in your yard.  Yes, it's the same house with the same paint and carpet and kitchen that the previously cheery agent was sure they could sell.  Instead of your house being sold you are left with a long list of demands from your agent to make the house "Sellable"  Now, not only is your house not sold but you are facing a laundry list of expensive repairs. 

If you are lucky enough to afford the repairs and you get an offer you are then faced with home inspections, financing contingencies, option periods, delays and maybe through all this time the market takes a dive.  Anything can happen.

Take control of the sale of your house! Call Houses Wanted today, we are able to buy your house the same way we have been doing for twenty-five years.  We will take a look at your house, provide you with a competitive cash offer and set a closing date of your choosing.  We will buy your house as-is, no contingencies, no engineer reports, no delays, no demands, no hassle.  There is a better way to sell a house.  Houses Wanted.

9 Reasons to Work With HousesWanted.Org

Want to Sell Your Long Island House Fast?

Here are nine reasons why HousesWanted.Org is the best place to sell your Long Island home, fast and for cash!

1. WE ARE PRIVATE HOME BUYERS

Community Alliance Group, LLC dba HousesWanted.org is a private home buyer not a realtor. You will not have brokers fees. We are not looking to list or sell your home. We want to buy it!

2. WE ARE HONEST

We are honest business with a strong interest in the community. Your attorney will draw up any sales contract to sell your house fast.  

3. RECIEVE A WRITTEN, NO OBLIGATION OFFER IN 24 HOURS

Receive a written, no obligation purchase offer within 24 hours that you can “take to the bank”. We pay all cash (typically a Bank Check), - No mortgage needed. We know first hand of many horror stories where a property was in contract for months only to have either the buyer or the bank walk away, because of some contingency or problem. With us, you have an IMMEDIATE SALE.

4. NO ENGINEER OR TERMITE REPORTS NEEDED

Other buyers many use this as a bargaining tool or may get scared off entirely, regardless of your agreed price. We are experienced buyers, who have our own dedicated work crew. We normally do one walk through inspection which takes about 10-15 minutes, and that’s it. Normally, we agree up front to buy entirely AS-IS

5. AVOID EXPENSIVE REPAIRS

There is no need for expensive repairs. If you will deduct the cost of repairs form the sales price, we have our own crew that does the repairs so you can save time, effort and money. In most cases, you may even leave any unwanted furniture, household items and / or junk in the house, basement, garage, yard etc. This can save you thousands in costs for dumpsters, labor etc., as most other buyers will want the house “broom clean”. When we say you can sell your house fast, We Mean It!

6. WE ARE YOUR LOCAL HOME BUYER

With many reference from area sellers and attorney, we truly are your local home buyer. Proof of funds is available upon request. We are not a faceless internet company located on the other side of the country! So if you are looking to sell or buy a property that is not located in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens or Brooklyn, please accept our apology because we cannot help you. 

7. YOU CHOOSE THE CLOSING DATE

Once we receive the clean title report, we are ready with the available funds, so we can close in about a week or a few months, YOU get to choose what best fits your timeframe. 

8. HASSLE-FREE SALE

You don’t have to worry about constantly organizing and cleaning the house for the hordes of potential buyers. Even if you do secure a buyer, you’ll have to start all over again if he doesn’t get the bank loan, possibly months later. 

9. NO MORE TENANT PROBLEMS

Having difficulty with problem tenants or C.O. (certificate of occupancy) issues? We will make you an offer to purchase (and close) even if your tenant doesn’t allow us access to the inside of the home! Also, most C.O. problems are considered and accepted. PROBLEMS WITH C.O., TENANTS, AND SOME REPAIR ISSUES can seriously hinder or make any transaction impossible with a typical buyer who requires bank financing. (We don’t require bank financing, and we buy AS-IS)

How to Stop Foreclosure

Foreclosure

Foreclosure is a scary reality facing many homeowners in New York and Long Island today. If you’re late on payments or miss some, you need foreclosure help.

Stop the stress!

When considering how to stop foreclosure remember that mortgage modifications advanced by the Government under Obama are helpful to some, but not everyone meets the criteria.  If you live in New York or Long Island and are facing possible foreclosure consider all your options including selling your house fast.  

At HousesWanted.org we buy houses in NY and Long Island and may be able to make a cash offer on your house quickly!

Foreclosure is the legal process the bank goes through to re-posses and sell a property to recoup as much of its investment as possible. Mortgage lenders aren’t the only ones to start foreclosure proceedings. Municipalities can foreclose for tax and some contractors can too. Your rights in Long Island New York may be better for some, but you still have a lot to lose if you do not take steps to protect your interest as a homeowner.

On Long Island homes are foreclosed as a judicial sale. The courts handle the speedy liquidation of your property. All creditors with a lien are paid off first. If there is anything left, you will get a share. Because they do not wait for market value, your proceeds can be cut short or eliminated.

Some may ask why the entire house can be seized because of a few missed payments. Lenders accomplish this by making the entire amount of the mortgage due at once after they declare the loan in default. Most mortgages in New York have an acceleration clause. This clause enables your lender to have the legal right to demand the full amount of the mortgage due immediately.

HousesWanted.org has affiliations to select real estate attorneys who may be able to slow or stop foreclosure process immediately. Then you can explore your best options. If you choose to sell, we are an all cash buyer for your long island property. Because we are cash buyers not needing a mortgage, you can rest-assured that you will be able to pay off your mortgage and get cash in your hands, provided it is not a short sale. In fact you may be surprised to know that even owners with low equity can arrange to settle with the bank for pennies on the dollar.

How to stop foreclosure is a good question. You can take action to protect your interests. The best way to handle the situation is to cease foreclosure and sell the property yourself at a good price. Another way is to get a Mortgage Modification, but the banks can hold up your paperwork until it is too late. The trick is to legally stop the foreclosure on your home and then find a solid investor with hard funds who can give you a fair price.

Out of town investors may not have a fondness for Long Island and may not be flexible with terms. We have an established reputation in the community. Our network of attorneys can stop your foreclosure immediately. Then we can tender a fair, market-value all-cash offer on your property. Also, with us as a buyer, there is no 6% commission to pay. Remember, when you can’t afford to keep your home the creditors must be paid off first, and you the homeowner are last in line for a disbursement. That is why it is vital to get fair market value on your property. Make sure you get the money YOU need to start over. Know that we are here to help, contact us today to learn more on how to stop foreclosure.
