If the summer of 2016 is the year you want — or need — to sell your home, Archway Homes may be able to help. This hometown real estate investment business, owned by husband and wife team Jon and Stacy Bichelmeyer, has almost 20 years of experience buying homes in all conditions and does it quickly without the often painful and stressful selling process.
Archway Homes buys homes in any condition: pretty houses needing little to no repair, ugly houses needing everything repaired from leaking roofs to bad foundations, cluttered houses, or houses in need of cosmetic updating.
Being able to sell quickly to an established and reputable company such as Archway Homes is the perfect solution for those who need to move to assisted living, because of illness, being transferred and can’t wait for a traditional selling process, facing foreclosure or other financial difficulties, an inherited house, or anyone who has a difficult home to sell.
Jon points out that Archway Homes, which has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, buys houses differently from other buyers, cash or conventional, out there. They provide a no-obligation offer process where Jon first walks through the home, then provides an offer within 24 hours. “We can pay cash and close within three days or on a future date of your choice, there are no fees or commissions to pay, and after both of us have signed the contract, it doesn’t change unless it is at the seller’s request,” Jon says.

The Bichelmeyers have worked with many sellers over the years that have been frustrated and disillusioned by trying to sell their properties.
“For example, a buyer offers them a price, then brings in an inspector, partner, or appraiser, and the offer gets chipped away through continual renegotiation by the buyer,” Stacy explains. “But the seller feels like they have no choice but to continue with that buyer. The same often happens with retail buyers who throw in closing costs to the seller, required repairs, and continually delay the closing. That is not how we operate. Sellers just want a smooth transaction, and our experience has given us the ability to remove the hassles for the seller by doing all the work ourselves after the contract is signed.”
Jon and Stacy have lived in the community for over 40 years, and Jon is a third-generation real estate investor. “I’ve been buying houses, fixing them up and selling to homeowners in the metro area for close to 20 years,” Jon said, “long before HGTV inspired the new investors in town. My sellers and buyers know that I’ve been investing in our community for my entire adult life as a local business owner, not a national franchise, and continue to do so. Out-of-state investors aren’t personally invested here like I am. They will be gone when the next hot market beckons, but I’m not going anywhere.”
Archway Homes has purchased houses in all sorts of situations. Sometimes they are inherited properties, filled with clutter that would be difficult for the heirs to clean out. So they simply tell the sellers to take whatever is of value to them, and leave the rest. They also purchase rental properties, vacant and occupied, when the owner no longer wants to be a landlord. In fact, they have purchased multiple rentals from the same owner at the same time.
As the parents of three very active boys, Jon and Stacy understand busy schedules and can relate to the struggles sellers face.
“Our goal is to serve the seller and make the process simple and easy,” Stacy said. “I know how much I appreciate businesses that follow through and do whatever is in their power to make my life less complicated. Selling a property can be stressful for some people and it is our job to remove the obstacles and complications from the process.”
