Relocating can be an exciting thing. Whether you’ve said yes to your dream job, following a loved one, or moving abroad, it can be a great opportunity to advance your career or simply find a better quality of life elsewhere. However, to be able to move out on your fast timeline, some arrangements need to be made. The biggest one of them is selling your home.
Generally speaking, you have 2 options: selling your house before or after relocating.
This would be the ideal scenario. If you manage to settle all your affairs before moving, that would help you focus on what needs to be done once you get to your destination. It will save you time and stress knowing that you don't have anything left to take care of once your relocation is complete.
Which brings us to the question “How do I sell my house fast?”
In a perfect world and with unlimited resources, you would hire a real estate agent, invest in necessary repairs to make your home market ready, stage it, market it, conduct house showing and go through the 60+ days process of closing. However, if you need to move out fast, the traditional way of selling may not be the right one for you.
Another option would be becoming a landlord and renting out the property. Although there are no guarantees that you will find tenants fast and have everything done within your timeline. You should also know that being a landlord is not a hands off responsibility. You might need to travel back occasionally.
Relocating comes with its fair share of expenses. Especially if you are relocating your whole family, moving furniture, cars, and renting a place to stay temporarily and so on. Although it makes sense financially to sell your home before moving, if you can afford starting a new life while having lingering expenses in the city you’re moving out of, then you might consider selling your house after relocating.
The tricky part of it all is having to take care of transactions remotely. The best way to go at it is to find a reliable real estate agent you can trust with selling your house and connecting with them before you move. The benefit of relocating first then selling your home is not being in a hurry to sell, which won’t impact your asking price. You can put it on the market and wait until the right buyer comes along to sell it.
On the other hand, having the property on the market for a long time means you are still financially responsible for it even though you started a new life elsewhere.
Real estate investors are companies that buy properties for cash with the purpose of renting them or selling them for profit. They may not be the traditional way of selling houses but in a situation like this, they are your best option.
The appeal in working with a property investor is the pricing and the timeframe. They will make you the best offer they can, pay you in cash and will take as little as 10 days to close. The best part of it all is that you don't need to do any repairs or showings, they will purchase the property as-it. No extra fees.
