We shopped this property to several different buyers beginning in January of 2023. After writing and presenting multiple offers to the seller, he asked our advice on how he should proceed with his property. We suggested placing it on the open market to be certain he was receiving the highest and best offers possible.

The highest off market offer we had presented was for $2,875,000. After placing it on the market, we received six offers on the property. The highest traditional financed offer we received was for $2,600,000. The final seller financed purchase price was for $3,450,000. That is $850,000 more when utilizing seller financing.

This is a great example of how seller financing can be a win-win for both parties. The buyer received excellent loan terms that are currently not available through traditional financing or hard money lending, and the seller is now receiving higher monthly loan payments than what he netted when he owned and operated the property (but without the costs or responsibilities associated with owning the property!).

Call us to discuss how you could also utilize owner financing to maximize your sale proceeds.
