Dunedin, FL (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Selling the house you no longer want in Florida's Pinellas, Pasco or Hernando Counties became more entertaining and tastier yesterday, when Advanced Realty Team announced its 2014 Valentine’s Day Special.
“Packing and moving can be a pain in the butt,” said George Beardsley, Broker-President of Advanced, “so to show we have heart, we are offering a Valentine’s Day Special to anyone who sells a house to us between now and February 28, 2014.”
The special consists of a $100 gift certificate for a Tampa Bay area restaurant, two tickets to an AMC Theater, a two-pound box of chocolates and a dozen roses, the firm said.
Offers Serviced to Home Sellers
Advanced Realty Team is a Dunedin, FL-based real estate brokerage boutique that offers a service for people who want to sell a house in seven days by buying the house from them.
“Most brokerage firms ‘list’ houses for sale for the owner," Beardsley said, “hoping someone will come along and buy the house.“
“We remove the middle man and buy the house directly from the home owner,” he said. “Even though I am a real estate broker and Advanced is a brokerage company, we charge no commission for a seller who deals directly with us.”
Buys Houses AS IS
In addition Advanced buys houses as is so there is no need for the expense of fixing the house up to get it sold, the company said.
“We have been doing this for more than two decades and can buy if the house is worth less than the mortgage, in foreclosure, an estate home, a for sale by owner, or just a regular home in good condition and with no mortgage,” Beardsley said.
In order to qualify for the Valentine’s Day Special, the contract must be signed by all parties before Feb. 28, 2014 and must close no later than March 15, 2014, the firm said.
Home owners who would like to qualify for the Valentine's Day Special may call Beardsley directly on his cell phone at 727 644 4661.
"Many of our competitors hide behind a website and ask you to fill out a form," Beardsley said, "and then they decide if they want to talk to you."
"We are real people with real telephone numbers who really buy houses and anyone can call me directly," he said.
ABOUT ADVANCED REALTY TEAM
George and Maryan Beardsley, two former stock brokers, founded Advanced in 1996 after spending several years working for a national franchise real estate firm and gradually doing a larger portion of their business buying and selling homes for themselves and financing sales for other Realtors. They entered the real estate business the hard way, owing a home in Boca Raton Florida within a mile of the site for a planned garbage burning incinerator.
The Realtor they hired suggested owner financing which Maryan and George said sounded “stupid and scary.” But having little choice they sold and held the mortgage and the more they learned about creative financing, the more it seemed to be an important tool, especially when it is difficult to sell houses.
Eventually the buyer of their home refinanced and the Beardsleys received the full amount of cash for the sale, at top price and during a period when no one had been able to sell. “That really got our attention and we left stocks, commodities and bonds for real estate,” George said. The firm offers a number of ways of buying houses fast and lately has been offering affordable homes programs, using homes bought as rentals and rent to own homes.
George Beardsley holds the U.S. Patent Office Trade Mark for the Famous Rent to Own on Steroids Program™ where 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 home as though they already owned it. This program has been modified to be Dodd-Frank compliant.
In the last year, the firm has added an Internet marketing division to use some of the experience the firm has developed Internet marketing both the purchase of houses fast and the various rental programs offered, including the Famous Rent to Own on Steroids™ and the Famous Foreclosure Rentals program. Advanced also offers a service for local merchants where they guarantee the local firms’ website will be on the first page of Google.
