Getting Started with Sell and Stay
At EasyKnock, we know selling your home is stressful and every situation is different. In order to understand your particular needs, we designed our process to be simple and transparent.
Step 1: Fill out the Sell & Stay Info Form, and we’ll send you more info and give you a call within 2 business days!
There are no judgments from Easyknock, we are just trying to understand your goals. At the end of this call, customers usually know if the Sell and Stay program is right for them. We will likely need to run a credit report and/or get your current mortgage payment history and pay stubs (not much different than renting an apartment). If it is not the right fit, EasyKnock can still find a buyer for your house for the lowest cost in the market…just 1.5%.
Step 2: We’ll make you an offer
EasyKnock will present send you with an offer to purchase your home and the monthly rent you will need to pay in order to “Stay”. We are accustomed to dealing with requests involving quick closings, credit issues and sellers that have little income and can customize a deal structure to suit your situation.
Step 3: Time for documentation
We will send you a purchase and sale agreement and the lease you will be signing and having notarized. We use basic forms for both, but we always advise people to ask an attorney for help. As always, you can find a local attorney in our resource center.
Step 4: Clearing the contingencies
We always perform a physical inspection that requires our inspector to visit your property. You don’t need to stage or prepare the house. This is typically the only time we need to visit prior to closing. We are accustomed to finding some deferred maintenance and can make the necessary repairs after the closing. We will also do a title report and address any concerns at that time.
Step 5: Schedule the closing
We have designed a process that allows us to close in 30 days or less, from start to finish! You get to sell the house and keep the home. No disruptions or expensive moving costs.
