Buying and Selling at the Same time
It is a delicate dance between selling and buying at the same time. There are countless details and decisions involved both in buying and selling process and when they happen all at the same time, this can cause some serious headaches for the homeowner.
To help with some of those potholes in the selling-while-buying road, work with a knowledgeable real estate agent, Like Darcey Edwards. She has experience handling both transactions at once. Make a specific action plan with reasonable expectations. Set a reasonable price for your current house. Know what you want in a new home. Be sure your current home is ready to show for the market. Be sure you have enough funds to take you through an emergency.
When selling, use aÂ real estate agentÂ like Darcey, who has the knowledge of local market conditions and what buyers want. She has the experience to market your type of home and is an asset in accomplishing a fast efficient sale.
A bridge loan, making a contingent offer and significant, non-refundable earnest money are all ways to get the house of your dreams if your current one hasn't sold yet.
Buying and selling at the same time is not easy, but it is doable. By partnering with Darcey, being prepared and exercising patience, you'll be able to make and receive an offer simultaneously. Darcey has the experience and great connections to make that leap so you only have to move once.Â
