Selling a House To Move To Senior Care

Upward Home Solutions has services to help you on this journey.

This post will discuss the simplest, most convenient way of selling a home in the Central Ohio area, and how our company is particularly helpful for people moving to senior care facilities.

Ready to move to senior care? UHS can help with the house.

Know When It’s Time to Sell The House.

Seniors move into assisted care facilities or retirement communities for many reasons. Perhaps they need medical help or memory care. Others want to downsize. Still others like the amenities and convenience of having senior care services at their doorstep. Senior care facilities eliminate the burden of home maintenance and provide a safe environment.

We buy your house for cash. It’s a service that real estate agents won’t offer.

“I can’t keep up the yard.”

As we age, the physical strain of yard work can be too much. In the summer, there is grass that needs to be mowed, gardens that need to be weeded, flowers that need to be mulched, and trees to trim. In the winter, there are sidewalks to shovel and the danger of falling is increased.

“I can’t do steps.”

People who live in multi-story homes may have difficulty navigating the stairs due to injury or age. Those with mobility issues, including using a walker or wheelchair, may find that steps are impossible. The fall risk is heightened when there are stairs in the house. When going up and down stairs becomes difficult, it may be time to look for a home on a single level. Senior care facilities are built with mobility in mind.

“Stairways are a common location for falls, and they result in a disproportionate risk of death or severe injury.”

from “A review of stairway falls and stair negotiation: Lessons learned and future needs to reduce injury” by Jesse V. Jacobs

“I need medical help for myself or my spouse.”

There are many choices in senior care, from independent living in a condo to full nursing home care. Some facilities will allow seniors to transition between the different levels of medical care as their needs change.

“I want to retire and enjoy a community of friends my age.”

Many senior living places will have activities for the residents. A friend who recently moved into a care facility told me that there is a free happy hour every day in the common room. He loves having a glass of wine before dinner with his new friends.

It’s Time To Sell The Family House

If the home has been owned for a long time, it will have a significant amount of equity. Some seniors will own their house without a mortgage or bank loan. They will be able to sell the house and realize the full amount of profit. Others will have paid off 40% or more of the loan, which can still be a significant amount of money. The equity in the home is value that is stored. When the home is sold, that equity becomes money in the bank that can be used for senior care.

Senior care facilities can cost a lot of money. In 2019, the average cost of assisted living and memory care is $4,000 per month with memory care costing an additional 20%.

Senior care facilities, which offer the flexibility of a continuum of care from independent living to skilled nursing, can cost an average of $3350 per month plus entrance fees of $80,000-150,000.

For many families, selling a home can be an important source of money for paying for long term care expenses.

Upward Home Solutions can help you with a quick house sale.

How Much Does Senior Care Cost?

Are you wondering how much money you will need to live in an assisted care facility? eCareDiary’s Cost Calculator can help you understand how much money you will need for long term care.

Upward Home Solutions simplifies the transition to senior care.

When you or your loved one is transitioning to senior care, UHS has solutions for selling the house. You may not want to make expensive repairs or updates. Upward Home Solutions will buy your house As-Is and you do not have to clean it out. You can take what you want and leave the rest.

If you want a guaranteed price and a scheduled closing date, don’t list with a Realtor. A real estate agent wants to help you sell your home. Upward Home Solutions are cash buyers. We want to buy the house from you, eliminating the “middle man” and the uncertainty.

When you sell your home to Upward Home Solutions, you pay ZERO commissions and ZERO closing costs. This saves you THOUSANDS of dollars. You will have more money to pay for senior care, and more peace of mind. We will give you a cash offer on the house without closing costs.

Advantages of Selling To A Local Investor

Advantages of Selling to a Local Real Estate Investor

When you are selling your Columbus/Central Ohio home in a hurry, you need a quick and reliable local source. Listing with a realtor can mean months of delays and unexpected costs. Meanwhile, you still have to pay mortgage, property taxes, insurance, utilities, and repairs out-of-pocket.

If you’ve ever wondered how to sell a house quickly for cash, read on.

There are real estate investors like Upward Home Solutions who want to buy your home quickly and as-is.

It’s fast and simple.

When you contact Upward Home Solutions, we will give you a cash offer, usually within 48 hours of calling us.

Tim will meet you at the house and after a quick tour, give you a written offer. He will give you cash for your house. It’s that easy.

You won’t have to wait for inspections or have an open house to show your property.

The closing usually happens quickly too. We can close in as few as seven days, but we will work with your schedule if you need a little more time. Money will be wired directly to your account on the same day as the closing.

You won’t have to wait for a bank to approve a loan.

Sometimes, going through the traditional route means waiting days or even weeks for a Columbus bank to approve the loan. They will want inspections and appraisal, which further slow down the process. If you need to sell the house fast, you don’t want the headache of delays in closing.

We pay all closing costs and there are no commissions.

When you work with a realtor, you can expect to pay 3% to 6% of the selling price in commissions. Selling to Upward Home Solutions cuts out the middleman and allows you to realize 100% of the profit. You get to keep all the money for the sale of your house. It’s that simple.

Protect your credit and avoid bankruptcy.

Foreclosure and bankruptcy can harm your credit score for years and ruin your long-term financial plans.

Because Upward Home Solutions can close on your house fast with a cash offer, you can avoid foreclosure and bankruptcy.

We’ve seen it all.

Inherited houses, hoarding, terrible tenants, basement issues, divorce, vacant homes, and so much more. We don’t judge. We are here to help.

Beware of Scams

Not all investors are local. Some are out-of-state cavemen posing as local investors. Ask questions. Do they have an office in the Central Ohio area? Check out the contact info on their website. Many times, it’s a company in Texas. Notice the red flags. Upward Home Solutions is not a franchise. It was started 15 years ago by a husband and wife team. They grew up in Columbus and are raising their children here.

Red Flags: Not Everyone Is Like Upward Home Solutions

Upward Home Solutions is a different kind of company

Let’s be honest: When you are ready to sell your house, you want the most money and the least amount of stress.

Some folks are downright sneaky.

The Offer

I received an email yesterday from “Kathy” who said that I had a “pending offer for the sale of my house.” Um, my house isn’t for sale and I have never heard of Kathy or her company.

However, I decided to play along and clicked on the link in the email to “review offers.” I was immediately prompted to choose from a dropdown menu that got progressively more and more personal.

The final prompt was for me to enter my email address and “receive my offer.”

That’s when I noticed the fine print.

“By clicking the button above, you acknowledge, consent and agree to the following … You are providing express written consent for (name of company redacted) to share your information with up to four (4) of its premier partners and for (company) partners calling on behalf of (company) or authorized third parties on their behalf to contact you… about financial services or other credit related offers….

emphasis mine

“Kathy” has no intention of buying my house or anyone’s house. This is a cheap stunt to get my information and sell it to people who can call, text, and email me as much as they want in order to get me to use their credit cards or whatever.

Seller Beware

Upward Home Solutions is different. We only buy houses in Central Ohio. When you call us on the phone, you will either reach Tim or Amy. We don’t do high-pressure sales. If you tell us you don’t want to hear from us ever again, we will take you off the list.

And we would never, ever sell your information to someone else. That’s so dishonest it makes me mad.

Upward Home Solutions Are the “Good Guys” in the Business

You’ve decided to sell your home and you want to find the “good guys.” You want a fair price and you want the transaction to be as easy as possible. Upward Home Solutions is the team you have been looking for.

Upward Home Solutions Team

You Have Come To The Right Place!

We are the good guys.

Upward Home Solutions has been helping homeowners in Central Ohio for many years. Our team will help you every step of the way. 

We know there are other companies out there competing for your business.

Make sure you do your homework before signing anything! Please, “Google” Upward Home Solutions online. Check out our glowing reviews. Call our number. You can even take a peek at our Facebook page. When you call the phone number, a real person will answer, probably either Tim or Amy. 

Beware of Scammers.

Do a little investigative work. When you see a sign offering “WE BUY HOUSES,” be suspicious.

  • Is there a company name on the sign or just a phone number? A sign without a company name or logo is a red flag. Real businesses are proud of their name. 
  • “Google” them. Do they have a website? If so, look at the bottom of the website for an address. Is it here in Central Ohio? Some of these “CASH FOR HOUSES” operations are from out of state. You’ll never meet them, so don’t trust them.
  • Find the address of the local office. “Fred Flintstone” may say that he has a local office, but where is it? Can you visit him or is he some fly-by-night dude working out of his parents’ basement? He may want your “UGLY HOUSE,” but do you want to work with a knuckle-dragger?
  • Check out the Better Business Bureau reviews. Businesses can’t buy reviews from the BBB, so you can be sure that these comments are from real people. Upward Home Solutions is rated A on the BBB with a 4.6/5 star rating.
  • You might be surprised to learn that some of these “BUY YOUR HOUSE” people don’t want to buy your house at all. They are simply real estate agents looking to list your house. For so many reasons, you’ve decided not to go this route. Don’t fall for their bait-and-switch tactics.

Let the good guys at Upward Home Solutions make your life easier.

Test us! Call 614-705-0866. Talk to a real person. Ask us lots of questions.

What Realtors Won’t Tell You About Selling Your House

Not every house needs a real estate agent.

In fact, for many people selling with a realtor is too much: too much money out of pocket, too much time, too much stress, too much scheduling.

Many people do use a real estate agent. You have probably seen the signs “For Sale By Owner,” but did you know there is a THIRD way that is much simpler, faster, and easier?

What if I told you that with one phone call, you can meet with someone and begin selling your house without any hassles? Well, you can! This is the secret the real estate agents don’t want you to know. Upward Home Solutions is your local, friendly homebuyer in the Columbus area.

How Does It Work?

It’s very simple. Tim will meet with you and give you a fair CASH offer that day. If you like the offer, Tim will walk you through the next steps. The sale will be on your schedule, on your terms, and you won’t need to spend a dime.

Every House and Every Situation Is Unique

We know every situation is unique. Maybe you want to find a new place to live before selling the house. It’s no trouble to delay the closing for a month or two. Perhaps the house is occupied by a renter or deadbeat family member. We’ve dealt with these situations before and we can help you. Maybe there are property taxes that haven’t been paid. Don’t worry! We will take care of everything. 

Here’s what you DON’T have to do: clean, repair, pay the property taxes, paint, or answer calls asking for showings.

Simple, Fair, Fast

When it comes time to sell your used car, there are lots of options: trade it in at the dealership, sell to a dealership, put up a sign in your yard or advertise on Craigslist. But all of those options take time and energy. 

My dad recently sold his car online. After one quick phone call, he had an awesome cash offer and they came to his house to haul the car away. My dad was so happy. No more car insurance, license fees, or oil changes for a car he was hardly driving; and the cash put a big smile on his face. Plus, Dad didn’t have the stress of trying to sell it himself or haggle a price at the dealership.

What Would You Do?

What would you do if you didn’t have to worry about that old house? Would you have the freedom to travel? Or maybe you would downsize to something that better meets your needs. Perhaps you would buy the car of your dreams and still have money left to help your family. 

Call 614-705-0866 to find out how much your house is worth.

Perhaps you talked to the bubbly Amy on the phone. She is not only informative, but also sweet and caring. Amy is often the first person people talk to on the phone after receiving one of our mailers, finding us online, or hearing about us through other satisfied folks. She will set up an appointment for the next step in the process.

Tim Smith

Tim, always smiling and honest, is in charge of making an offer and walking you through the paperwork. He has two little girls at home and he knows how to make everyone laugh. By the time Tim comes to your house, he will have done a little research on the property and will probably make you a cash offer. You can think about it – no high pressure sales! Or if you’re ready to go, you can dance your way to the vacation of your dreams.

There are a few people working behind the scenes to make sure everything goes smoothly. We have been doing this for many years, and we are ready to make this happen for you.

“But My House Is a Mess!”

Don’t worry- we’ve seen it all! We aren’t realtors and actually we prefer to buy houses that need some work.

Our team doesn’t judge. We regularly buy houses with floor-to-ceiling clutter. Some have major repairs that need to be made. Others haven’t been updated since JFK was president. Your house is not the worst we’ve ever seen. I promise.

 

What Am I Going To Do With My Money?

That’s totally up to you. Maybe you buy another house that’s just the right size with no repairs needed. Perhaps you take your family on vacation or treat yourself to the boat you’ve always wanted. Some people save the money for retirement, for the education of their loved ones, or invest the extra cash.

Without the weight of a house that needs repairs, your life is full of endless possibilities.

Call Us Today

We’ll set up a no-obligation appointment. It’s quick, easy, and honest.
