Need an incentive to help move a home?

through the keyhole by twenty_questionsThe answer is PITI Abatment. Do not let the financial jargon scare you. For years production builders have used this incentive to move inventory. Now every seller/investor has the opportunity to participate.

  • PITI Abatement program is a product designed specifically for home-buyers. You can give a 6% Seller Contribution that can be used for Principle, Interest, Taxes and Insurance payments.

  • Minimum score of 575
  • Fixed Rates and ARMs
  • Interest Only is available
  • Income limitations may apply

In today’s real estate market investors need all the help they can get. With increased inventory in just about every market place, realtors and investors need to use unconventional tools to create benefits for their potential buyers. I have seen cars, furniture, pools, and televisions given away. But those items can be difficult to include in the average investor transaction. Giving away 6 months of payments can create separation from the other sellers in your market place.

    Nice job Troy!

    This incentive has worked well for us, too. Often times our buyers of bread-and-butter houses are mainly concerned with monthly payments, so this is very attractive to them. Another great strategy if it’s not selling to a retail buyer, is to switch to a rent-to-own, which also highlights the need to be working with a great lender (great as in they close 100+_ loans/year).

    Burn your TV…… go find a deal,
