There is a lot to consider when relocating to another city or state and selling your home in the process. However, the following steps will help to alleviate much of the stress that arises during this potentially challenging time.
- Be an intelligent home seller – we could write an entire post about this. So here are some helpful tips:
- Be sure to qualify all buyers. Are they cash or is their offer contingent on financing? Homeinc purchases with all cash, so you don’t have to worry about a cancellation due to financing.
- Disclose everything about the home.
- Set a competitive price so that you can get multiple offers.
- Market your home so you get as many potential buyers as possible.
- Determine what needs to be repaired and what doesn’t – after your appraisal and home inspection, you should have a pretty good idea of what needs to be fixed and what you can safely skip. If you decide to sell your home to a cash-for-houses home buyer such as Homeinc, you will not need to deal with the appraisal, inspection or repairs.
- Do not close on your next home until you have found a buyer – the timing on this point can be challenging. Ideally, your current home and your new home would close on the same day. But it is a better idea to sell your current home before closing on your new home. If you choose to work with Homeinc, the timeline is flexible and there are post-occupancy options.
- Find the right company to sell your home to – cash for homes companies offer many advantages when it comes to selling your home. Homeinc offers competitive cash offers while purchasing your home in “as-is” condition. You can skip the commissions and closing costs, as Homeinc covers those. Homeinc works with your timeline and offers post-occupancy options.
- Get an appraisal and a home inspection – before listing your home, it’s important to know as much information as possible about your property. This information will be very helpful for buyers who are pre-approved for a home loan.
- Investigate the housing market – including prices for similar homes, time that houses in your neighborhood spend on the market, and what the pulse of the current market is. In other words, is it a buyer’s or a seller’s market?
- Prepare your home for sale – if you decide to go the traditional route and work with a realtor, you’ll need to prepare your property before listing it on the market. This means doing the repairs your realtor requires, ensuring your landscaping is well-maintained and staging the interior. This will ensure getting the biggest bang for your buck, however, it can be expensive.
