Moving out of state to take another job or to live closer to friends and family will require you to do some quick decision making, as your house is not likely to sell as quickly as you want it to.
New Orleans Real Estate – Kenner Home Buyers: The inability to sell your house can really get in the way of your grandest plans. You’ve decided to move to another state to take a better job and you must be moved, settled into your new house, and be ready to start work in 6 months. That seems like plenty of time, but in today’s market it certainly is not as much time as it would have been in the past. With homes sitting on the market for a year or more you might find yourself in a quandary if you count on selling quickly.
There are a few options you can take advantage of so you won’t be caught short when you need to be in the moving van heading west. Some of the solutions involve selling in a hurry while another is to rent the house out until it sells. In any case it’s best to start as quickly as you can in exploring these options to see if any of them will fit your circumstances. Something is sure to be a winning solution and will allow you to move and begin your new life without the worry of having left loose ends back home.
Another option is to sell the house to a real estate investor.
If you choose to rent out the house if you can’t sell it quickly enough, check out the property management firms in the area and think seriously about hiring one to oversee the property, collect the rent, and head off any tenant problems that might arise. They charge a small monthly fee that is based on a percentage of the rent collected in most cases, but it might be well worth it to walk away and have those details taken care of for you.
Another option is to sell the house to a real estate investor. You can receive an offer with no obligation. This allows you to decide whether you want to sell the house for a discounted amount or keep it and rent it out instead. A real estate investor can buy your house, usually for a cash price at about 70 to 80% of the current market value and most of them know their laws and paperwork necessary to complete the sale. You don’t have repairs or cleaning to do and the whole process takes them about a week. Find a good investor in your area with some credibility and ask what they will give you for your house.
