shawn tempesta: welcome to the morning blend extra. i'm shawn tempesta. now, does your home need a major repair or do you need to quickly sell your home for cash? well, real estate expert, investor and broker for first prime realty group, lathe levada, is back and he's here to show us how you can sell your home for cash. it's great having you. lathe levada: thank you. shawn: let's talk about this. you buy homes. what types of homes do you buy and what types of sellers do you buy from? lathe: i buy unwanted homes from sellers who need to sell quickly. generally, these sellers, these homes have massive repairs or the seller is facing some sort of hardship, such as a divorce, relocation, job loss, sometimes they own an unwanted rental property, and they live out of state, or someone's passed away in the family and they've
8:41 am
just need to sell that property. shawn: now, let's say they had a home that they wanted to be able to sell. why would they sell to you as opposed to doing any other method? lathe: well, i buy homes that generally need thousands of dollars of repair. shawn: yeah. lathe: so the homeowner is unable to complete those repairs, and typically a cash buyer like myself is one of the only buyers that could purchase that house and make those repairs. the normal loan buyer can't buy those or don't want to buy those typically... shawn: they don't have the cash on hand to do that. lathe: exactly. with stringent guidelines, they're not able to buy these sorts of homes so a cash buyer like myself needs to come in and purchase those homes. shawn: so take us through the process. you buy a home, what happens to it next? lathe: well, the homes that i buy generally, i will either hold as long term rental properties in my portfolio after i make the repairs, or i'll make the repairs and put the home back on the market for resale so that a loan buyer can go ahead and purchase the property at that point.
8:42 am
all my deals to be win-win deals. i enjoy buying these homes because i get to help out homeowners in bad situations. shawn: of course. these are homeowners that need a resolution relatively quickly. and you're kind of that knight in shining armor. that's what he is. i like that. the seller, do they have to pay the real estate commission? shawn: there is no real estate commissions on the homes i buy for cash. shawn: okay. lathe: i even go as far as to pay for the seller's closing costs, ordinary closing costs at close of escrow. shawn: wow. lathe: these are as-is transactions. the seller doesn't have to make any costly repairs or fix-ups on the property. it's really truly meant for those sellers who want to sell quickly, get their cash out, and move on. shawn: how quickly are we talking here for a purchase? lathe: i've purchased homes with cash in under three days before. shawn: no kidding? lathe: yeah. shawn: wow. that's way, way faster than your normal loan process and having to put it on the mls. that can really for somebody that's in a rush, that's perfect. yeah, it's quick but it's based on the seller's time frame, not mine. lathe: of course.
8:43 am
is unique. every seller is different so we want to make sure that we're not rushing that seller. if they need more time, we give it to them. shawn: so how can a homeowner then find out whether or not your home is one of the homes they would maybe... you would like to purchase? shawn: well, the process is simple. they just give my office a call, and i'll do a 24-hour, no obligation cash offer, we'll do an evaluation of the home. that's the first step. the second step would be agreeing to a purchase price, drawing up a purchase agreement and the third step would be finalizing the transaction at a third party closing company-- title and closing company-- so they can get their cash profits and move on. shawn: that is like the easiest home sale ever. lathe: yeah. shawn: it's fantastic. if people want to be able to reach out, how do they do so? lathe: they can call my office at the (702)476-2000. that's really the best way and then we can make a time to sit down and go over the condition of the home and what it is that the homeowner wants as far as profit out of the home and just
8:44 am
that we can close on. shawn: i know, obviously, beyond this you are well versed in all things real estate, and you have a radio show. shawn: i do. it's on i-tunes and it's also on our website on demand so anybody who wants to listen to me on the radio take about all things real estate can just go to our website at shawn: absolutely. you can go there and check it out, and you're really covering all the bases there. it's pretty awesome. and you can ask him questions too. lathe, it's great having you. lathe: thank you. shawn: thank you so much. again, you can catch lathe's radio show. it's available any time on his website or on i-tunes. you can sell your home to lathe for a guaranteed quick and easy 24-hour, no obligation cash offer. he can do the sale in as little as three days. that's fantastic. for more on his services, you can call the number or visit the website on your screen. lathe is also on facebook and twitter. have a great day, vegas. music
