You Need to Relocate and Sell Your Home Quickly. What Are Your Options?

If you need to relocate quickly, you’re probably looking for the fastest way to sell your home. That way, you can avoid paying double in mortgage payments, property taxes, and maintenance expenses. However, traditional home sales don’t always offer that speedy timeline you’re hoping for — so what can you do?

OPTION 1

Lower Your Home’s Listing Price

Many homeowners believe that lowering their home’s listing price will help them sell faster. While that may be true in some cases, it may not be in others — and it definitely won’t help you get the best payout.

OPTION 2

Ask Your Employer About Relocation Assistance

If you have to relocate due to job changes, you might ask your employer about any relocation assistance programs or benefits that may help you sell your home faster, buy a new one, and/or pay for moving expenses.

OPTION 3

Rent It Instead

Instead of selling your home, it may be easier to rent it out — at least for the time being, while you’re figuring out your upcoming move and getting settled into your new home. Even if you can’t make enough money in rent payments to cover your new mortgage, it will help you more than paying thousands of dollars each month for a home that’s vacant. 

Just keep in mind that managing a rental property isn’t always as simple as it sounds. You’ll still be responsible for maintenance and communication with your tenants.

OPTION 4

Try a Short Sale

A short sale is when a homeowner sells their home for less than the amount owed in the mortgage. In most cases, short sales are doing for those experiencing financial hardship, but they can benefit those experiencing abrupt life change as well. You can sell your home as-is, without making any repairs, and you can save money by selling your home quickly and avoiding duplicate home expenses.

However, in order to qualify for a short sale, you must work with a lender. It involves a little bit of work, but not as much as a traditional home sale.

OPTION 5

Sell As-Is to an All-Cash Buyer

The fastest, easiest way to sell your home quickly due to relocation is to sell it as-is to an all-cash home buyer, or real estate investor — like us at Hometown Development. Our hassle-free selling process ensures your home is closed on in as little as five days. Plus, we’ll provide a fair cash offer based on market values and the condition of your home — putting cash right into your pocket.

Common Reasons for Relocation

There are many reasons why homeowners choose to (or need to) relocate. While some of these relocations can be expected and planned ahead of time, others may come as a bit more of a surprise. 

    • Job change and office relocation
    • Proximity to family
    • Change of lifestyle
    • Financial struggles
    • Home security and safety
    • Natural disaster

If you’re facing an unplanned relocation, you may be wondering what the next best steps are. Relocation alone can be a lot to process; packing up and leaving a home you love isn’t easy. On top of that, you have to deal with the stress of selling the home and all of the responsibility that comes with that sale. Fortunately, you have options.
