Taking the Risk Out of the Home Sale

Home SaleWe offer professional real estate expertise to help facilitate the successful sale of your employee’s home and ensure that only qualified purchasers are accepted. We’ll also caution you against risky sales contracts that may include hidden contingencies or lead to unwanted sale fallout. Finally, we’ll track the sale, including contingency removal through closing, and assist with mortgage, title and escrow services.

Home Sale Facilitation/Property Management

Archibald Relocation will provide assistance with individuals needing to sell their home and manage the entire home marketing process. Our goal is to get the home priced to sell in a reasonable amount of time and allow for the new hire/transferee to focus on the new job. We utilize our nationwide preferred broker network, using only experienced relocation listing specialists in the new hire/transferee’s departure location. From these specialized brokers, we obtain two (2) broker marketing analyses to determine the list price and most likely sales price. These analyses also identify specifically if the home needs repairs or improvements, if there is a feature that is not common throughout the neighborhood/subdivision, etc.

Once the home is listed, we will closely track the showing activity and marketing strategy of the broker and ensure that the new hire/transferee is aware of their broker’s activity and any changes to the marketplace that will require adjustments to their pricing or marketing strategies. We then offer sale negotiation assistance to help facilitate successful negotiations, ensuring only qualified purchasers are accepted, and also cautioning against risky sales contracts which may include hidden contingencies and items which may lead to unwanted sale fallout. We then track the sale, including contingency removal through closing. We provide nationwide relocation mortgage, title and escrow services.

If a home is not able to be sold then Archibald Relocation will provide a list of Property Managers to interview to manage their home and find a suitable tenant. Our Preferred Portland Property Management company is Aria Property Management.

  •     Need for Repairs or Improvements

Buyer Value Option Home Sale Program

An IRS regulated home sale program which must follow 11 key elements to allow the corporation’s payment of the new hire/transferee’s non recurring closing costs to be income tax free this 11-step process is very similar to the Home Sale Management process, but exhibits tighter restrictions through the entire process due to the IRS regulation.

Amended Value or Guaranteed Buyout Home Sale Programs

These home sale programs provide the new hire/transferee with a guarantee of a corporate buyout of their home based on an average of two appraisals. The Amended Value Program offers the ability to amend the guaranteed offer price to a price higher than originally offered to the new hire/transferee if a qualified buyer is found who will pay more for the property, prior to the execution of the guaranteed buyout. Most often the amended value option would be extended for 30-90 days from the guaranteed offer tendered date. Added services in these specific home sale programs include appraisal order and review, inspection order and review and property management services.
