Spring is typically a popular time to sell a house, but given the current market environment that COVID-19 has created, you may be wondering if this is a good time to try to sell a house or if it would be better to wait until things have returned to normal.
There really is no one answer that will be the correct one for everyone.
What is your specific situation?
Depending on your own situation, you may or may not want to try to sell your house right now.
If you don’t have an immediate need to sell your house, it may be better option to wait, especially if you’re concerned as most of us are at this time, to not have people coming in and out of our house, touching our furniture and just breathing around us.
Not to mention if the house is listed, it’s not just the showings, but if we find a buyer, it’s the whole house inspection, the appraiser, movers, possible auctioneers or estate salespeople and the potential multiple interactions with others in getting moved into a new home or apartment.
With the current environment, all of these tasks associated with selling a house and moving, especially if downsizing, creates an even greater potential challenge that you may not want to deal with.
Do you need or want to sell now?
On the other side of the coin, have you found a new home or apartment community with an opening that is just right for you, and you don’t know when another may be available? Do you want to avoid another summer and taking care of the lawn or other maintenance around the house? Do you have a health issue that is forcing you to make a move sooner than later?
If you have one of the reasons above, or other reason, and you would like to sell your house now, you do have options.
Our team still has ways to market and sell your house in a safe manner, and we are still buying houses. With either of the options we can offer you, we would be able to do all of the preliminary research remotely and virtually to keep you and our team safe.
The benefits that we can offer if we buy your house are: you don’t have to put your house on the market at all. You won’t have to worry about potential buyers coming in and out of your house. You won’t have to do any updates or repairs. We buy as is. You can leave any or all of the stuff you don’t want to move. There are no whole house inspections from a picky buyer. There is no appraisal for the lender. We are cash buyers. We may pay up to $1,000 to help you with your move. We can be flexible with closing and possession dates. You will have complete control over the sale of your house.
No one knows what the next 30, 60, 90, 180 days or more is going to bring, but if you want or need to sell your house and get to a better living arrangement or lifestyle, we’re here to help in any way that we can.
We can also help you create a plan of action so that when things do get back to normal, you will be ready to make that transition as stress and hassle free as possible.
