The owner of this house reached out to us as they needed to sell their house before Foreclosure. The Foreclosure was in a matter of days so they needed to sell their house fast. We got out to the property the next day to see if we could help and we ended up closing on it before the foreclosure. We understand that it is stressful and scary when you are facing foreclosure and we are here to help give you more options to deal with it.
You can see the video which was when our Founder Steve Keighery and Courtney Fricke who is a Creative Real Estate Investor we often team up with, went to inspect the property. At the time of filming we weren’t sure if we would be the buyer as it was our first time seeing the property but we did end up being the buyer. You can also see the video transcript below.
Steve: Hey guys, Aussie Steve here from Home Buyer Louisiana. We buy houses in any condition in Louisiana. I’m here at a property in Ponchatoula, checking it out. We received a call yesterday about this house that is unfortunately facing foreclosure. The sheriff’s sale is next week, so they really need to sell. We hustled out here to have a look.
I’m here with Courtney Fricke. She’s my partner on some deals. Courtney, do you want to talk about the story behind this property?
Courtney: Yeah, sure. We got a phone call yesterday. You can see, we got the call on Wednesday, and the auction is scheduled for next week. Time is of the essence. They’ve tried some options already, but nothing has worked. Now they’re down to the wire. Usually, even with a cash offer, selling a house takes around two to three weeks through the normal route. But in this case, they need speed.
The thing is, everything they’ve tried so far hasn’t worked. That’s why they called us. I’ve been working with pre-foreclosures for nearly 10 years now, and one thing I’ve learned is that you have to come here, assess the situation, and offer solutions. Obviously, there are some condition issues with this house. We came to look at it yesterday, ran the numbers, and thought about how we could help this family. At the end of the day, we’re here to help.
Sometimes, helping means making quick cash offers, while other times, it involves more creative options, like taking over the payments and catching up on the loan. If a foreclosure is looming, it means they haven’t made payments for a while. We’ve stopped numerous foreclosures this year alone, and we’re determined to continue helping families in similar situations. Maybe this family will be the next one we assist.
If you’re ever in a situation where you’re behind on your payments or need to sell fast, we can help. I’ve had cases where people didn’t even have a loan but needed to sell quickly. For example, I recently worked with a guy who inherited a house that kept getting broken into. He lived in a different state and wanted it out of his name fast. We bought it in just a few days. It’s not something we normally do, but that’s what he needed, and we found a way to help him.
Steve: So, if you need speed and you’re facing financial difficulties or other challenges, reach out to me or Courtney. We’re always happy to help. We work closely with a realtor named Courtney, who is a great resource as well. This particular property was listed on MLS with a realtor, but it didn’t sell. You’ll see why when you look at the condition of the house—there was an electric fire, mold issues, and the AC isn’t working. These problems make it hard for any homeowner to buy it at the speed and price they need.
Moreover, Hurricane Ida caused a tree to fall and crush the shed at the back of the property. It also caused roof damage. These are just some of the issues that make this property difficult to sell. When you’re facing foreclosure, time is of the essence. We have various solutions and tools to help stop foreclosures and make the process smoother. We’re always happy to assist, so please reach out to me or Courtney. Thanks, guys!
