Do you have a new job that requires you to move to a new home? Has a divorce or death required you to liquidate your home as soon as possible? Or have bad times turned worse and the only hope of rescuing the investment you've made in your home is to sell it before the bank forecloses on it?
When changes happen in your life - for good or bad - you may have to face the need to sell your home and sell it quick.
If you need to move you probably don't want the anxiety or cost of trying to sell from another town while your home stays empty and unprotected. You may also not want the burden of the cost of paying for two mortgages and utilities for any length of time.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF MY HOME DOESN'T SELL?
Let's face it, there are times when the best thing that could happen to you is for your home to sell quickly. The cost and burden of having your home sit on the market for weeks and even months means more money wasted and energy spent.
If you live in your home while selling it you will be faced with the constant distraction of potential buyers coming to view your home. You will need to suffer the irritation of strangers looking into your closets and personal space. You will have the burden of maintaining a spotless home that will show beautifully even on short notice. If you have children that will be even more difficult.
Along with that you may find your realtor is busy with so many properties that your home is not given enough attention. Potential buyers may be picky about the negotiating details, critical of your home and deals may fall through at the last minute meaning you must start again. The process can be long, tiring and frustrating.
HOW CAN I SELL IT QUICKLY WITHOUT TAKING A LOSS?
Up to now you may have only heard of real estate investors as a last recourse. Do you think that the only way to a quick sale is to lower your price below the market value? Will you need to spend weeks fixing and preparing your home for a buyer?
Actually, if your home meets their qualifications, which may even take place over the phone, they can quickly handle the paperwork involved in making the sale without further delay. If they are interested in the property they can pay market value, or sign a contract to take over your payments while a suitable buyer is found - you don't have to wait until the buyer is ready, the payments are already being made.
That means you can decide when the best closing date is for you. No more worries about the unpredictable market or the hassle of deal breakers. You can move on and get settled in your new home right away.
This is the only sure method of selling your home quickly and without frustration. You don't have to worry about the season you're selling in, waiting for the perfect buyer or having a show home. In fact you may find the approved buyers willing to pay more than if you let your property sit on the market too long or at the made a quick sale at the wrong time. If you are thinking about using a real estate investor make sure to have a 'no obligation' interview before making an agreement.
