Dunedin, FL (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
Advanced Realty Team yesterday announced it will offer a $1,000 “Thank-You-for-Your- Service” Bonus for any active duty service person or former service person who sells a house to Advanced between Memorial Day and the end of May, 2013.
Advanced is a small Dunedin, FL-based boutique real estate brokerage firm that provides a service for people who want to sell their house fast by buying the home from them.
“We never do enough for our service people,” said George Beardsley, Broker-President of Advanced. “And all of us should be looking for ways to say thank you to these people.”
The contract must be signed by both parties before May 30 and then must close no later than the end of June 2013. Payment of the bonus is at closing.
“It’s good to see America welcoming the brave men and woman home,” Beardsley said. “In my day the welcome was not so warm.” “These fine young people deserve the best and we offer a free consultation even if we cannot buy the home.” A current military identification card or a form DD 214 will be required for proof of service.
Beardsley was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for service as an Army intelligence officer in the Republic of Viet Nam.
Advanced has been buying houses fast in the Tampa Bay area for two decades. In the beginning, the business model called for rehabilitation of the home and then the sale or sale with a lease option, but when the real estate market crashed, Advanced switched to turning the homes purchased into affordable rental housing.
Today, the rental portion of the business model is divided into three different products, an enhanced rent to own, a straight rental program and recently the Famous Foreclosure Rentals.
Advanced introduced the Famous Rent to Own on Steroids Program™ for which Beardsley holds the U.S. Trade Mark. In that program, all rent paid in the entire first year becomes down payment and the Tenant-Buyer can “earn” a mortgage by making 12 consecutive monthly payments on time and maintaining the house for the same period of time as though they already owned the home.
Famous Foreclosure Rentals grew out of the purchase of homes in or about to be in foreclosure. Advanced principals or clients in this rental program disclosure to the tenant the house faces a foreclosure risk.
Tenants are informed of the possibility of being forced to move by judicial decision and the annoyance of bank personnel calling on the home with documents or other communications. In exchange the tenant can rent below market value and have the opportunity of moving to Famous Rent to Own on Steroids™ for free.
“We buy houses in a number of ways,” Beardsley said, “because of the number of creative ways we have to market homes.”
“All of these methods are not right for everyone,” he said. “Some clients are looking for great housing at a great price and for others it is more important that we are offering a way to own a home even after the damage caused to the credit of potential home owners.”
Advanced was founded by two former stock brokers two decades ago. At that time, Beardsley and his wife Maryan were already buying houses fast from Tampa Bay residents who wanted to. Advanced Realty Team yesterday announced it will offer a $1,000 “Thank-You-for-Your- Service” Bonus for any active duty service person or former service person who sells a house to Advanced between Memorial Day and the end of May. Advanced is a small Dunedin, FL-based boutique real estate brokerage firm that provides a service for people who want to sell their house fast by buying the home from them and get on with their lives. After working for a national franchise brokerage firm, they founded Advanced in 1996 and have specialized in creative ways to purchase and sell real estate.
Previously they had been stock and commodity brokers in Boca Raton Florida and had a rude introduction to real estate when they found out the home they had purchased was designated to be one mile from a garbage-burning incinerator.
When they were unable to sell their home at any price, they listened to their real estate broker and sold with owner finance.
“We were terrified to sell a house and carry the mortgage,” Beardsley said. “But it appeared we had little choice so we sold and collected payments for about a year and a half until the buyer refinanced.”
“That was one of the biggest ‘Ah Hah’ moments in our lives,” he said. “We realized by making the house easy to buy that it would sell quickly and for more money and we left stocks and bonds for real estate.”
