Blue Espresso!

Blue Espresso like selling houses fast with rent to own programs
Espresso in blue…Rent to Own also in blue!

Blue Espresso! Quick to brew, quick to drink, caffeinated enough to give you speed for a while!

Sounds very much like US, when we sell a home on RENT TO OWN!

It’s a much faster market than the conventional market where realtors and FSBOs typically operate and where things seem to happen when they happen, just jogging along hoping (sometimes praying) that things move…

We offer our properties to extremely motivated buyers who WANT to move FAST and who are in competition with each other. The house is probably the only one that works for them.

That’s why we can pick the most deserving buyers and it’s just unfortunate that many times we have to leave out very worthy families from buying because we can only sell one home at a time…

It’s a very energetic market, highly exciting and rewarding at a personal level, especially when you look at how we can QUICKLY get a seller unstuck and a Buyer in a home they can call their own instead of renting forever and/or wasting so much in a property that will probably never be the one where their kids are raised to when they leave for college or on their own way…

Selling haunted homes in Massachusetts

Disclose or not disclose?

Since it’s Halloween, let’s see what the law says about haunted homes, murder, suicide, paranormal activity, which happened or, allegedly, are happening in the building in Massachusetts.

Stigmatized properties for sale in Massachusetts and Sellers’ disclosures

When Selling a home, a Seller has to abide by many rules and guidelines. Some of these are pertinent to facts that may affect the building, and in turn the transaction, and that the law may or may not require a seller to disclose.

A stigmatized property is a property in which paranormal activity is reported or suspected, or where heinous events have occurred, such as murder, suicide or both. The law also considers an association of the property a certain illness, but that has lost much of its impact nowadays, so it’s more about the former occurrences.

Each individual, seller or buyer, has a different sensitivity to the issue of stigmatized homes and for many it’s not an issue at all. The issue of disclosure of these events and situations could add uncertainty in a transaction if not clear.

There are already so many hurdles, like inspections, appraisals, concessions, fees, assists, waivers, endless negotiations and other disclosures that having to reveal a “paranormal presence” in a house could jeopardize a done deal by spooking even very motivated buyers.

The creaky floors could be something easy to fix and not likely to hold up a Purchase & Sale, but should they be thought to be due to paranormal activity and not having been disclosed by the seller, it could create an insurmountable issue. If it emerges after signatures have been exchanged it could provide a solid reason for legal claims based on lack of disclosure.

MASSACHUSETTS LAW

Unlike California, where you can go back 3 years and more for psychologically impacting events on the property, it’s not the case in Massachusetts! The law clearly states that, as it doesn’t fall in the category of material facts which have to be disclosed, it’s unnecessary “to disclose the fact that the property was the site of “…felony, suicide or homicide” or “…that the real property has been the site of an alleged parapsychological or supernatural phenomenon.”

HOME SELLERS AND LANDLORDS

No disclosure of any stigma on a property for sale is legally necessary in Massachusetts for a Seller, but for a Landlord or Lessor also.

Buyer Beware and due diligence

HOME BUYERS AND INVESTORS

The general “Caveat Emptor” (Buyer beware) rule applies here for home buyers and buying investors, who are expected to perform their due diligence in general, but especially with regards to this specific issue if they’re sensitive to such a property. If you’re a buyer, it would be advisable to talk to neighbors, research public records, and just ask clear and direct questions, especially if there’s a doubt, maybe rumors, maybe a feeling.

If home buyers ask clear questions about any stigma on the property, the seller cannot misrepresent or make false statement without giving cause of action, with half-truths also providing an opportunity for a successful lawsuit.

CHOICE TO DISCLOSE

What sellers can do, is to provide information voluntarily. If they so choose, it’s their prerogative, but NOT obligation and buyers can’t claim it as a right to have that information disclosed.

REAL ESTATE AGENTS

If the seller is represented by an agent, in the same way no disclosure is necessary. Due to the fiduciary nature of the relationship between agent and seller, the agent cannot provide the information voluntarily, unlike the sellers, and unless the sellers themselves authorize or instruct the agent to do so. The agent can always decline to represent the seller or terminate an agreement already in place if the information emerges after establishing the contractual relationship.

REAL ESTATE INVESTORS

If an investor, like us at Proxima Investors, is involved in the sale, depending on the type of underlying deal, the investor is subject to the same disclosure rules as the seller, holding equitable interest in the property.

PROXIMA INVESTORS

At Proxima Investors we have not come across a situation of stigmatized properties where it was a concern. However, since Massachusetts and New England in general, are old states with many antique and beautiful homes which have witnessed a lot. Homes can have a long and known history and the creaks and noises of old homes can be unsettling and inspire stories passed down over centuries, and sometimes made more “interesting”. Think about Salem in the 1600s when Massachusetts was a very populous state with lots going on. It’s only a matter of time that we will run into this issue. We already have invested in old and antique homes, which can be difficult to sell in this market, and we love them. Should the issue at some point arise, we believe that it should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, as property stigmatizing events and situations have a different psychological impact depending on their uniqueness and the specific circumstances.

The bottomline for us is that we don’t have to disclose, but if there’s a particularly unsettling story linked to the house, we would probably not invest in it anyway…

Time for Something Blue!

The blue color of Real Estate

The tangibility of Real Estate property, especially homes, is greatly appealing to professional investors and even more to consumer investors! it’s often the most important expense and financial commitment in their lives and therefore their lives are in great part influenced by this important choice. Being tangible, gives the owner a much stronger feeling of control, stability and comfort and that is always a great potential for bringing great benefits, practical, financial and emotional for the owner, the family, the neighborhood and, ultimately, the country.
