Episode 6:

Episode Topic:

Buying on terms can feel risky, and in the wrong situation it can be just like any other big purchase, but it doesn’t have to be if you take some time to plan, be honest with yourself, and set clear expectations and guidelines. Learn how a strict pre-qualification process can take the risk out of buying or selling a home on terms, and how working with a trusted and experienced team can help you cross the finish line to home ownership.

Glossary of Special Terms Used in this Episode:

  • Lease Option – an agreement between a homeowner and a renter that gives a renter the option to purchase the rented property during or at the end of the rental period.

  • Why buying or selling real estate on terms is ideal for anyone who truly believes that homeownership is important

  • What steps Pre Property Solutions takes to extensively pre-qualify buyers to ensure that they are the right fit for sellers
  • Why the signed agreement that happens after the qualification process is truly the start of the sale process and goes beyond a lease-option
  • Why Pre Property Solutions often brings in other resources or experts to ensure that buyers and sellers make it to the finish line and their deals are successful
  • Why Pre Property Solutions is just as invested in the success of the deal as the buyers and sellers are


Nick’s Bio:
In 2003, Nick Prefontaine was in a snowboarding accident that left him in a coma for over 3 weeks. The doctors told his parents that he probably wouldn’t walk, talk, or eat on his own again. Less than 3 months later, he was running out of Franciscan Children’s hospital. Now Nick speaks to groups that benefit from his message of overcoming adversity.

Nick grew up in the real estate industry and got started at an early age. Most notably, he was knocking on Pre-Foreclosure doors at 16, doing up to 50 doors a day. This experience helped shape Nick’s real estate career. When someone opens the door you better have something compelling to say.

Now, Nick specializes in working with lease purchase buyers to get them into a home and on the path to home ownership. That includes working with them throughout the entire deal which ends in them being able to get their own loan. Getting buyers to the finish line is something Nick and the entire Pre Property Solutions team take pride in. That is something that separates them from their competition. Regardless of a buyer’s credit situation, he looks at their complete financial picture and comes up with a plan to get them into a home.
