Hi Cynthia,

Some buyers love to see everything done when shopping for a home, however, others like to choose some upgrades themselves (i.e.; light granite counters instead of dark granite on counters or hardwood floors in bedrooms or carpet? ) .

If your upgrades with the Quieter Home Program are strictly window and door upgrades but the rest of the home is intact, then I recommend get the home on the market now so the buyers can see how beautiful your home is now BUT....only if you have at least one room with the upgraded windows so you can show the difference it will make once all the windows are improved.

Good luck and call if I can help in anyway:)

Hi Anji,

Yes there are homes, apartments,condos, vacation rentals. It all depends on what you are looking for, what month plus how many months or weeks you need to rent for, if you have pets, prefer a garage, one story,etc.....

Your best bet is to work with an agent to find a property for you plus that agent can set up an active search based on your criteria and preferences.

You can also search on Craigslist but be careful; there are a lot of scammers out there...if there is no phone number, move on!

Call me at 858-869-5110 cell/text if you need assistance...happy to help:)

Good Luck!

Actually, several investors (myself included) work with sellers in this situation nationwide--even in cases where there might be some negative equity. In cases where the seller is extremely underwater (has more than 10% negative equity [my criteria]), we might structure the deals using other exit strategies (namely short-sales, short-paper, DIL, or private workouts).

Agents/brokers can--and do--get paid when helping to facilitate a properly structured lease-option. Wendy Patton, Phill Grove, and countless others have plenty of materials both online and offline that explain how to do it. One may also discuss this with an experienced real-estate attorney.

The reason why doing a lease-option might make sense--even in cases where the seller has little/no equity or some negative equity--is that given a long enough option period, the market value of the subject property eventually will appreciate to a point where its appraisal will support that valuation. That's definitely going to happen due to inflation and the continually rising costs of living. While this might sound like a speculative play, it's not. This is primarily a cash-flow play, with a possible equity spread kicker, and a downside hedge (the option).

If the property doesn't appraise for the strike price, then the tenant/buyer doesn't have to exercise the option. Yet, if the landlord/seller and tenant/buyer are happy with the arrangement, then they could arrange to extend the lease and the option to give themselves enough time for the real-estate cycle to catch up to where they need to be.

This play is tried and true. It's been used effectively during several of the other previous down cycles; some of us are using it now too.
