Everything Was All Wet! Mom and Dad Needed a New Place to Live

Posted on: June 4th, 2019 by , No Comments

The Caspersons weren’t planning to sell their beautiful Bayshore home, but Hurricane Irma put a giant hole in their roof and destroyed one of the rooms…and they needed to sell. The Caspersons faced the additional challenge of deciding where to live. Leona and Frances had spent 43 years in their Tampa home, and had three sons in three different locations: Tampa, Texas, and California. Would they move to a low maintenance condo in Tampa, or relocate to be closer to one of their other boys across the country?

I first met Leona shortly after Hurricane Irma, and I shared with her our process of getting a fair cash offer from a trusted builder partner. I explained that there would be no need for them to repair their roof or get the home ready to sell – and the buyer would cover the closing costs as well. Soon, I was speaking to all of the Casperson sons, and we discussed their parents’ options.

Once moving plans to Texas were in place, we quickly got the Caspersons an offer that the entire family approved. The sons especially appreciated the process because it allowed them to focus on what was best for their mom and dad rather than haggling with buyers or trying to repair the roof. “It was all very transparent and was actually quite easy,” said their son Sean. “You guys were very professional and took good care of them. You put us at ease.”

A cross country move after 43-years is a big deal, so we finalized agreements to allow the family an additional 30 days after closing to complete their move. At the end of the day, we wanted to give them as much assistance as possible as they prepared for their big move to Texas. “It gave my parents good peace of mind to know they had that extra 30 days,” said Sean.

If you are planning to sell an older, smaller, long-time family home in South Tampa, I can help you get a fair offer. Whether you’re helping relatives move across town or across the country, our transparent and professional process that will give you peace of mind.
