Many homeowners find themselves in a situation where they’re behind on their mortgage and don’t have the finances to continue paying their home loan. This can lead to a short sale or even foreclosure. But homeowners do have the option to sell to a real estate investor and that’s precisely what Kristine Zelazo, the Short Sale Gal, will explore in today’s article.


Selling your distressed property (a property that is owned by someone who is behind on their mortgage -or- a property that is dilapidated and poor condition)  to a real estate investor can bring many benefits, primarily the fact that investors will offer a competitive price and they can ensure that the transaction moves quickly — a point that’s essential for distressed property owners.

When dealing with a typical home buyer, the transaction can take several weeks or even longer, as most buyers may need to sell their own home before they can complete the transaction to purchase your home. This can result in some major delays. And, of course, there’s the matter of securing financing which can be both difficult and time consuming.

But when selling your house to a real estate investor, you’ll enjoy some benefits, especially when it comes tot he speed and ease of the transaction. A real estate investor typically has money-in-hand and since it’s an investment property, there’s no need to sell an existing home before the sale can proceed. In short, they’re ready to buy your home immediately!

What’s more, when you sell a distressed property to a private investor, there’s no need to go through the short sale or foreclosure process, which can have a negative impact on your credit score (and that says nothing of the hassle and worry!)
