Fourth Generation Business Owner Chad Klamen discusses Missouri home sold as-is for cash.

Transcript:

[00:00] Hi, this is Chad here at Klamen real estate where we buy houses as is for cash. I’m out here in front of a three bed, one bath brick house in Ferguson, Missouri, where we just closed on it yesterday and have not started the construction process at all. So looking forward to bringing you through this one here… for him and his wife. They need to sell quickly and they didn’t want the hassles of going through a real estate agent and they also wanted to save some money, that’s going to require, that you’ll see is required out of a Rehab, and they want to get rid of it quickly. And then that’s where we came in and we made them an all cash offer. So we’ll go ahead and take it through and I’ll show you  what it looks like.

[00:46] So, uh, before we go through, I just want to show you some of the things that I look on the outside of the house. And although it doesn’t look like a lot of these types of cracks and all that stuff costs money, so when we do go into the construction process, we’re definitely gonna have to take off the ivy on the outside of this house and clean it up, and we’ll find out what the brick looks like behind the Ivy. But that’s always a concern because you never know if the ivy stained the brick.

[01:19] and I just walked in the front door. As you can see a lot of personal belongings were left behind. I guess it’s just stuff that the people didn’t want. But one of our services is that you can take what you want, you can leave what you want. Our goal is to make it as simple and easy for you as a home seller through the selling process.

Transcript:

Hello, Chad here at Klamen group where we buy houses as is for cash and I’m in South City. I’m in 63111 zip code at a two bed, one bath, a cottage style house, and the owner just moved out into Hillsboro, way out into the county and just wanting to sell this as is, needs quite a bit of work as you can see, there’s some plumbing issues and some other issues going on. And, just wanted to get it off his hands. We were one of three other investors that came in, took a look at it and we were the highest bidder so to speak. So, I’ll show you inside and show you what we bought here. And if you or anybody you know is looking to downsize, move out to the county, out away from the city, please give me a call and maybe a little bit more of a quiet lifestyle, please give us a call. I’ll show you the inside on what it looks, and some of the issues that we are more than happy to buy.

Speaker 2: 00:57 So I entered through the back door and as you can tell, the kitchen is in pretty good shape. It’s one of the reasons that we’re able to bid a little bit higher on this one than maybe other properties with similar issues, not a ton of work needed in the kitchen. And bathroom is relatively big, which we like. And again, also in decent shape. Um, this is kind of the main living area. There’s probably hardwood floors underneath here, which we’ll tear up. bedroom number one, which is very small, but it’ll do a for a two bed, one bath and in the city. And then there’s a second bedroom. It’s much bigger and I’ll show you downstairs some of the plumbing issues that I was talking about.

Speaker 2: 01:45 Fortunately there’s no lighting here, but you can kind of tell that there’s some sort of cracks knowing on a leading down into the basement. So I made it down here in the basement and the door is propped up against the basement door here kind of as a support. Uh, I guess previously somebody had had broken in, which is never good and kind of a safety concern. There is the electric panel, which without a cover it clearly won’t pass code, and kinda barely can see, but making my way into the back here and there’s a constant drip going on here into the basement right now. There’s a bucket here to kind of catch the water and the bucket’s about overflowed. So I’m going to empty that bucket and we’re going to have to get the water turned off. So if you or anybody else, you know, needs to sell a house as it is, maybe it has some plumbing issues, maybe they want to move out of the county and downsize from the city.

Fourth Generation Business Owner Chad Klamen Discusses St Louis Home Purchased for Cash

Hi, this is Chad here at Klamen Group where we buy houses as is. I’m in Maryland Heights, Missouri where we just started a rehab and, we’ve owned this particular house, it’s an interesting deal because we’ve owned it now for over a year, about 14 months and, we bought this house and the seller was having a heck of a time getting the people living in the property out, so she sold it to us with them in and we provided her a simple, smooth and easy transaction, closed in about two weeks and this was again over a year ago. Then, when we bought it, we had a heck of a time getting them out and it took over a year to, to evict the tenants out, but you know, that’s part of the headaches with real estate and our job is provide a simple sale, to the seller. And that’s what we did. And then it took us awhile to get them out, but it was an uphill battle. But we did it. And now we’re in the middle of a rehab and if you come inside, I’ll show you around.

So here we are inside the property, as you can tell when you’re just starting the construction process, first phase is ripping everything out and that’s where we are at now. This particular property, a smoker lived here, and so you can’t smell it, but, you know, before we started tearing everything out and washing the walls, it smelled like absolute nicotine and tobacco in the house. Um, before we paint we’9ll wash the walls of course, to get rid of that smell. Here’s where the bathroom will be. As you can tell, just kind of a hole right now. Kind of around where the kitchen will be, and all of the cabinets and fridge and everything will go in here. We’re going to put in new windows, put a new flooring, refinish the hardwood floors, here’s the second bathroom, half bath that’ll all be redone, repainted, has built in cabinetry, which is nice. We’ll be able to leave that. But besides that, everything else will go. And then we’ll have a partially finished basement.

Like I said, I’m here in Maryland Heights, Missouri. Very excited to get this property wrapped up and onto the market. So if you know anybody that has people living in their house that they can’t get rid of and they want to sell prior to the eviction, please give us a call, whether it takes us a month or a year, we’ll get the job done and it will provide you more importantly, with a simple and easy sale and transaction.

St Louis-St Ann House bought for Rental Property

Fourth generation Business Owner and Real Estate Investor Chad Klamen Tours St Louis Home Purchased for Cash

You got Chad here at Klamen Group where we buy houses as is. I am in Saint Anne, a street called San Jose, where we just are in the middle, slash finishing up a rehab on a property that was sold to us through somebody, that was a landlord and had the property as a rental property and then we bought it from them and we’re gonna keep it as a rental. So if you know anybody that has a tenant that just won’t pay them the rent or they’re in the middle of an eviction and  need to sell, and they don’t want the hassle of fixing it up and putting on the market. Please give us a call. I’ll take you inside and show you what we’ve done.

So walking in the front door, we just got done painting and refinishing hardwood floors as you can tell they look, it looks fantastic. Here’s one bedroom, here’s the second bedroom of this rental property in St. Anne, and here’s a bathroom, which, in my opinion came out fantastic. A lot of times on our rentals we’ll match the flooring, and the shower, and just give it a nice finished tile look. And you know, you can get these fixtures at home depot. Same with, the flooring and the tile on the toilet. Kind of a home depot special so to speak.

Paint it, give it a fresh look. Kind of finish off the, the backsplash in the kitchen and give it an updated look. And although these look like granite countertops, they’re not, but we replaced the cabinets, and the countertops, updating the bathroom, finished off the flooring, and it makes a good rental for us. So when we bought this, this is, I guess the third bedroom it’s kind of a funky layout here, but when we bought this, it needed definitely some love and care. We were able to provide them with a quick close and a cash offer a so they could be done and get out of the rental business and we can do what we do best at the Rehab property and rent them out when needed or resell them when needed. So if you know anybody that’s got a rental, that they’re trying to get rid of, we buy anything up to about 20 units, up for an apartment complex all the way down to single family homes, all throughout the St. Louis County and city area. If you know anybody that wants to sell, Please give us a call. My cell phone number is 314-359-3139, and our office number is 314-721-6800. Talk to you soon!

House Purchased in St Louis for Rehab

House Purchased in St Louis for Rehab

Business Owner and Real Estate Investor Chad Klamen Buy a House in St Louis for Cash

Hi, this is Chad here with Klamen group where we buy houses as is for cash and I’m here in Dogtown in St Louis, Missouri. Just bought this house closed on it a few weeks ago. Really excited to start this project, and I’ll kind of explain why here in a second. But, I’ve been talking to this seller for now over a year and a half, we met sometime very late 2016. At the time she wasn’t ready to sell, but we just stayed in touched. And then now she’s finally ready to move into a rental property and get out of the house that she’s in. It was actually her son’s house or so it was the one who’s selling. He had a motorcycle accident and she became the power of attorney and they were living here together. This was an interesting deal because it’s on a double lot, and right now lots of very valuable in Dogtown, so what we did is we bought the entire house and lot from them for a price that was fair for her and fair for us. And we went over the numbers and then what I did is, I’m not a builder, so I sold the lot to a builder. So just kind of give you an idea, I’m going to flip this around real quick

There is the house with a hole through carport, the garages on the other side, and then next to it, as you can see, it’s on a double lot. So we’re in the process of selling the lot to the builder it’s been sold, we just haven’t closed yet. He’s got to do  a survey. Kind of exactly where the lines are and that’s what he’s going through right now. So the lot Looks small he’ll put a house up there, and hopefully do very well. And then what we’re going to do is rehab this property, put it on the market and get it sold because that’s what we do. So much going on inside of me. And I’ll show you around,

Centered in here. You’ve got a fireplace there in the corner it’s a gas fireplace and actually, you can move that fireplace it’s not built into the property. Walking in here to the kitchen, as you can see, it needs some work, but the layout is already set up kind of the way we like it. Open floor plan, you know, clearly we need some new cabinets going in, different center island, but I really liked this property. Sometimes, you know, we have to take out walls and especially when they are plaster walls and becomes a larger project than you anticipated. But the layout the way it is, I really am looking forward to getting this done. What we’re going to do here is add a bathroom. So what we’ll do is we’ll close off these doors, make them not a door side on the outside, put in insulation and then add a bathroom here. It’s kind of hard to visualize, but basically instead of full archways we’ll have half archways and a half bath down here, not having a bathroom on the main level, sometimes a sticking point from buyers, so it’ll be important to get that added, it’ll increase the value of the property. And then I’m going to take you upstairs, kinda just gives you an idea and a full bath in here, three bedrooms and what we’ll do is we’ll refinish the hardwood floors, per normal, repaint, and get this thing ready to go on the market.

So that is the plan. As I was saying, we’re hearing Dogtown, so if you know anybody that you know, maybe they’re not able to keep up their house anymore. A person like I was saying that initially owned this house,  was very capable person, went to Duke, had some awesome stories to share with us and then his mom became power of attorney when he, you know, went through a really challenging situation. But, we were able to help them get it sold. Never at one point did we pressure them, we just went on their timeline and that’s what our goal is, is to make their selling and real estate solution as simple as possible. And then we were able to do that here. So if you have any questions for me, please don’t hesitate to call. And if you or you know, if you or anybody else that needs to sell a house as is for cash, always give us a call at 314-359-3139 talk to you soon!
