Meaning of Investors on Terms

There doesn’t appear to be ANY official definition of Investors on Terms or Deals on Terms (which are made by Investors on Terms) in general or in detail, nor are they specifically mentioned in public documents or recognized by public authorities or entities, as Purchase & Sales and Rental transactions are (“Subject To” deals are marginally acknowledged). The only deals that the general public may be aware of and can be included in Deals on Terms made by Investors on Terms, are Owner Financing and Rent to Own deals. However, these alone do not explain the concept that characterizes Investors on Terms.

Proxima Investors

Real Estate is a solid investment with many ways to monetize and always on demand

For us, Proxima Investors, investing on terms means that we partner with sellers and buyers to find an effective solution to the challenges that they otherwise expect to overcome with a regular sale, with representation from an agent or by handling the deal by themselves.

That’s the core meaning of the term for most investors and their goal, no matter how they distinguish themselves from all the others in the details.

Achieving the goals

In Real Estate Buying and Selling is a challenge and it's different for everyone. That's why a customized solution is to be considered.
Every Home Seller and Buyer has a different situation and challenge; we address it with a custom deal that provides the best solution

Deals on Terms represent an alternative to the mainstream method of buying and selling, especially when they allow to achieve and often overachieve the goals set by sellers and buyers.

In these deals, we don’t focus on the property and its price and/or market value as the only or primary deal point. When we look at a deal, the property is important, but we also dive deep into the whole situation; we dissect all the possible aspects and details of the situation. We look at the big picture and include the sellers or buyers, their personalities and their needs, desires and expectations. We can overdeliver in satisfying the priorities as they are set and expressed by sellers and buyers, if we can leverage effectively all the items of the deal. We create, design and provide a custom agreement which addresses and resolves all the issues of our partners specifically.
