Record-low home sale numbers, record-high unemployment numbers, and the difficulty of obtaining financing make the challenge of selling a home in a down economy a daunting task. Despite the low numbers of home sales, people are still trying to sell houses with a vengeance, and you may notice that nearly every other house in your neighborhood has “for sale” sign staked down in the yard.
Many homeowners are either forced or pressured to sell their homes immediately, for reasons ranging from unemployment and the inability to make mortgage payments to relocation for a better job opportunity. Despite the reasons, the large number of houses on the market means it takes more time to sell houses and that sale prices are at a record low in order for homes in each price range to stay competitive with one another.
How can one sell houses quickly with everything working against the seller? In this economy, selling your home to a homebuying company will give you the shortest sale, time, the least amount of hassle, and the best chance of a successful sale.
A company that buys houses can give you a quote instantly over the phone the first time you call. If you verbally accept their offer, they visit your home to assess the property and present you with an official contract outlining the terms off the sale, including a timeline for the sale. Once both parties have signed the sales contract, a closing date is set, often within the same week. The homebuying company deals with any paperwork, legalities, and other details of the settlement.
To sell houses quickly in this economy, selling to a homebuying company is the safest bet and a surefire way to be certain that your home will be the first in your neighborhood to sell.
