Absentee Owners

Get Started

There are many reasons why a person might find themselves selling a house that is out of state. Perhaps you have moved for work or maybe you’ve decided to sell your second home and become a full time snowbird.

Whatever the reason you find yourself trying to sell a home, doing so remotely poses unique challenges and there are several things you will need to consider.

Presale Preparation

Before you put your home on the market, you want to make sure you are attracting retail buyers and not bargain hunting investors.

Depending on the condition of your home, this may require staging, repairs or even renovations to create the emotional connection that traditional buyers are often searching for.

Securing the Property

Without an owner present, the house and its contents are at a greater risk of damage by theft and vandalism as well as disasters related to power outages and extreme weather.

Winterizing and Maintenance

Just because no one is living in the home doesn’t mean you can forgo regular maintenance. Vacant homes are a major target for theft and vandalism. And landscape that is unkept or unshoveled snow are huge indicators to criminals that no one is living in the home.

Make One Call and RELAX.

Selling a home at any capacity is difficult. Add in a few hundred or thousand miles and it becomes even more challenging. And if you plan on making repairs or renovations to the property, this can be challenging when you aren’t present to seek out local contractors or supervise the project.

We understand travel isn’t always feasible.  This is why our team of real estate professionals and trusted contractors will readily handle all aspects of the selling process, from hiring a locksmith, to overseeing renovations, to negotiating on your behalf at the closing table.  We provide a streamlined, turnkey program for absentee owners who need to protect, prepare and sell their home quickly for maximum value.
