The New Standard in Downsizing Assistance and Sale of Your Home and Assets. — Meet Uncle Andy in our new free video at www.DownsizingAssistance.com —

If you are part of the 80 million downsizers who need assistance to rapidly liquidate their assets, there is good news on the horizon. There are heavy lifters who can provide you with downsizing assistance and walk you through the entire process with passion and compassion.

  • Are you ready to move on? Downsize? Transition? Do you need assistance?
  • Do you want to bypass all of the commissions and costs of a traditional real estate sale?
  • Do you have a home and contents to sell before you can move on?
  • Do you need a helping hand to do all the heavy lifting? (Physical, mental and emotional.)
  • We are here with Senior Transition Downsizing Assistance.

Let us be your advocate and get your home and unwanted contents sold in 30 days with no commission, closing costs – as is; where is, with no contingencies.
You have made it to a special time in your life. Soon all the grass cutting and cluttered attics and basements will be behind you as you pick out the best part of your life and keep them allowing the rest to be sold so that others may enjoy them as fond memories and antiques.
There’s always been the traditional way to downsize. Call a real estate agent whether it is your son, daughter, niece, nephew, aunt, uncle or other friend and they will wrap it up and take care of it for you whether they have experience with downsizing or not. This is fine if time and cost to sell your property is not a concern.
The new way is to work with the real estate agent who collaborates with ExpressAuctioneers to rapidly liquidate your assets at top dollar. When your real estate agent collaborates with ExpressAuctioneers, the auction company does all the heavy lifting.
There is very little paperwork when it comes to selling your property. Your property is sold as is where is in its current condition. There are no updates or upgrades needed. When you sign a contract to sell as is, routinely your home will be sold within 30 to 45 days. You will then settle 30-45 days later and you will receive a check. That is all. No more than a handful of pages of paper
versus 60, 80 or 100 or more combined when you utilize a traditional real estate sale.

Does this mean that the traditional real estate sale is not for you? Not necessarily. The traditional sale and the Express Auction sale both have pluses and minuses. It is best to determine for
yourself which is better for you.

We will compare the three real estate sales processes as an example. From this comparison you can make an informed decision. Note all this information is available
at www.realestatestagingassociation.com/

Note 1: There are 2 main types of Express Auctions. Sorry, but neither sells for 1 dollar. We will make comparison utilizing the Express “Subject to owner confirmation” version where you have a
set price in mind and confer with your Express Auctioneer prior to your sale date. You can learn about the Express Absolute Auction on our website.
Note 2: Each has its own benefits. They are described below on a $300K example. With ALL Express Auctions, your property and assets are sold at your price “As-Is; Where-Is” with no
contingencies, no negotiated costs, no upfront fix-up costs including, but not limited to: no painting, no new carpet, no modernization of kitchen or bathroom, no home inspection, no outside curb appeal, no storage of excess furnishings, no outside buildings to be freshened and or modernized.
(This costs an average $15,000 to $20,000 and takes months to complete just for the basics before your home is listed.)

Note 3: The Express Auction Method also rapidly liquidates your other no longer needed assets including home contents, antiques, collectables, coins, precious metals, cars, trucks, boats, airplanes, farm equipment and other tangible assets.

Note: Buyer pays a 10% Buyer’s Premium (BP) and all closing costs.
Note 4: The investment in staging is always less than the amount of your first price reduction on your house. For example, the first price reduction on a $300,000 house is usually at least 5%. That will cost you $15,000 or more. – From http://www.realestatestagingassociation.com/
