Selling a house and moving into a new home can be stressful for anyone, but it is especially hard on those facing the daunting task of downsizing. Leaving behind years of memories and treasured mementos adds additional stress to an already difficult process.
Ben Souchek knows this all too well. The owner of The Sierra Group has helped numerous people transition into a smaller house, apartment, assisted living or residential care facility during his 18 years in the real estate business. He is also the author of the book, “Secrets to Downsizing My House: What Every Senior Needs to Know About Selling a Home and Downsizing into an Apartment or Smaller House.”
“We help seniors by providing a stress-free way of selling their existing house,” said Souchek, a military veteran. “I don’t know how many times we have met homeowners who have been trying to sell their house for months. But every month was costing them unnecessary expenses. Those expenses were literally eating up the precious equity they worked so hard to earn. We are always looking for and buying houses, even houses with little or no equity.”
While homeowners are waiting for a good offer from a qualified buyer, their real estate agents are often creating long lists of repairs, painting and updating that must be done, he said.
Never miss a local story.
“We can often close in seven days or less, or whenever you are ready,” Souchek said. “The best part is there are no costly repairs, Realtor commissions or fees for the homeowners to pay. We’ll even pay all their closing costs. That means no more guessing, no more waiting for months and months for a buyer, no more stress when selling your house.”
Homeowners wanting to sell their house for any reason can call The Sierra Group at 800-309-0753 or visit www.7dayscash.com. The Sierra Group will research the property and get to back to the homeowner with a solution within 24 hours.
“Next, we’ll come out to see and inspect the house,” Souchek said. “Sometimes, we’ll be able to offer one or more solutions on the spot. Or, we will do some additional research on the property and follow up with our solutions within a few days. There will not be any long drawn out inspections. We’ll be ready to go and we can close as soon as the title company or attorney gets the paperwork ready.”
The Sierra Group has developed many innovative solutions for nearly every home seller’s needs during its 18 years in the business. Sometimes, it buys houses by making payments for the equity.
“Buying with owner financing works especially well for houses that have equity,” Souchek said. “Owner financing is a great way to go if you have a lot of equity and want to convert it into a steady monthly cash flow. It’s kind of like getting the money from another job without going to work.”
The Sierra Group allows seniors to leave behind any of their belongings they cannot take with them. So, there is no need to worry about what to do with everything that will not fit in their new home. The Group will even assist with moving costs, and can be very flexible with moving and possession dates. This eliminates the stress of having to get out of the house if it is sold and with the transition to a new home.
“We want to make sure every downsizing senior has a good experience when moving,” Souchek said. “That means making it as easy and stress-free as possible. A big part of that is giving seniors the tools to control when they move.”
