Looking to sell your home in a hurry? Even in today’s hot seller’s market, it typically takes a little over two months to sell a house from list to close. That doesn’t account for any pre-listing preparations such as cleaning, decluttering, and staging the property.
If you don’t have the flexibility for this timeline, including the average 50 days you’ll spend waiting for a financed buyer’s mortgage to be processed, you’ll need to get creative with your plans.
Perhaps you’re looking to move closer to a sick family member, maybe you need to be closer to a new job opportunity, or you could have an entirely different reason for needing to sell your home quickly. Either way, you’ve got three main options for selling your home quickly.
FIND AN EXPERIENCED REAL ESTATE AGENT If time is truly of the essence and you want to list your home on the traditional market, it’s important to pick a real estate agent with plenty of experience. First, your agent will know a lot about the immediate area and will be able to help you set an asking price that will sell quickly. Beyond that, your agent may already know of a few homebuyers in the area who would be interested in your property, helping to expedite the process. If you’re looking to speak to a trusted agent in the area feel free to reach out to the knowledgable agent at We Sell Harford Homes, that has experience in selling homes in Harford County and surronding areas of Maryland. SELL THE PROPERTY YOURSELF If you want to avoid the real estate market, you may consider selling your home yourself. FSBO, or For Sale By Owner, is typically an appealing method if you already have a buyer in mind and you’re willing to put some time and energy into the process. Not only can you save money on realtor commission this way, but you can also save quite a bit of time by not having to hunt for a buyer. Of course, if you don’t already know of someone who is interested in your home, this method may not be right for you. If you do go the FSBO route, we recommend you fully embrace the process and make sure you are willing to do your homework when it comes to selling your house.
CONSIDER SELLING YOUR HOME FOR CASH At this point, you may be thinking, “I don’t have time to deal with a real estate agent, but I also don’t want to sell my home all on my own. And I don't want to pay real estate agent commissions. And I don't want to fix and clean my house to sell. So how can I sell my house fast?” There’s one more method you may not have considered yet: selling your property to a cash home buyer. In these transactions, you can sell your home for cash in a process that typically takes just a few days or a couple of weeks at most, not a minimum of six weeks or longer as the real estate market can usually take. Cash home buyers can put cash money in your pocket and can take care of the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. You wont have to worry about replacing your roof or painting your walls. Cash home buyers will buy your house as-is. WORKING WITH Easy Outs Homes home buyers.
