What is a Motivated Seller?

Motivated Sellers are those that have been trying to sell but haven’t been able to for one reason or another.

Sometimes, they may be facing foreclosure.

Or they may be in a divorce situation.

Or they may have been transferred with their job and need to move on, but they don’t want to leave the house empty or deal with renting it out to renters being so far away.

Or they may have lost their job and can no longer afford the home and need to find something less expensive.

Or they may have purchased another home and are now stuck with two mortgage payments.

Or for whatever other reasons, they just need to get out from under their mortgage payments.

In the current real estate market, it has become EASIER & EASIER to find these types of individuals.  In the past few years, true motivated sellers were quite difficult to come by, while buyers were abundant.  Recently, this has changed forcing more investors to change their strategies towards finding buyers in unique ways, or offering creative financing to sell their homes.  It’s a basic inverse operation, giving us “buyer’s” & “seller’s” markets..
