So, you’re looking to sell your house. There are plenty of reasons that you may want to sell quickly, from new jobs to new opportunities for travelling. The trouble is that in some cases, it can take a depressingly long time to sell a home. It depends on where you are looking to sell, whether the market favors the buyer - there are so many things that are dependent on the sale of your home, but if you want to do it quickly, there are several ways to go about it.
Whether you sell via a bank or with cash home buyers, you want this house sale to go well. With this in mind, we’ve put together five of the easiest ways that you can sell your house quickly so that you can start your next adventures.
Speak To A Wholesaler
There are so many wholesalers out there that can help you to sell your house. This means no banks, no underwriters and no others who are involved in the sale. You can sell to those looking to go a more unique way and cut out the middle man. You don't get a huge amount of money for your house, of course, but you will get the speed that you need. Wholesalers will flip the house to cash buyers on your behalf.
Get To Know Local Real Estate Agents
There are always real estate agents available in the area, but you need to find the best ones who can work your house for you. Most agents know that they will get a commission off the sale, so they will do what they can to sell it quickly for you. If you find the right one, they’ll be able to market and flip your home for you without much of a wait.
Reduce Your House Price
If you want to make a quick sale, reduce the asking price of the house - dramatically. Drop the cost by $10k or more and you;ll see more interested buyers come forward. Your property will sell cheaply of course, but you’ll get it off the market and you can make your move as a result.
Check Out A Short Sale
People want to sell fast because they have to, not because they want to. The last thing that you want is to have a non-existent equity and a debt that equals more than the value of the house. You want to make sure that you are selling because you are able to and not because you’re being threatened with foreclosure. A short sale can ensure that you are getting the sale confirmed without the mess.
Transfer Your Mortgage
Lastly, the way you can sell your home quickly is with a mortgage transfer. You have to read the mortgage documents to know if this will be easy to do, and speak to your bank about how quickly you can do it. Transferring the mortgage is a painless way to let the house go!
