Selling your home in today's market can be a nightmare. The uncertainty, the insecurity, and the fear that you will never be free of your property will add up to make the selling process a string of negative experiences and near-crippling moments of self doubt. Selling your home as quickly as possible transforms the process into a positive experience filled with tangible benefits you will appreciate immediately:
1. Save Yourself the 2 Year Struggle
In a great housing market you could sell your home fast in as little as a month through a traditional realtor. Unfortunately the housing market hasn't been "great" for years and it's not going to get better anytime soon. In today's market a home can easily take 1 to 2 years to sell through a real estate agent. By selling through non-traditional means you can sell your property in 1 to 2 weeks.
2. Selling Fast Fits All Schedules
Many people need to sell their house because they are moving for work, because they need to relocate for family and relationships reasons, or for purposes otherwise out of their control. If you're about to start a new life in a new location then you don't want to remain tied down by a property you used to live in. By selling your house fast through non-traditional avenues you can move on with total assurance.
3. Prevent Foreclosure
If you feel worried about your ability to keep your home, or if you find yourself one missed payment away from foreclosure, then you need to sell your home fast to prevent entering legal proceedings which will haunt you for the rest of your life. No traditional realtor can promise you they will sell your home in time to protect you against foreclosure.
4. The Market's Future is Uncertain
There's no way to predict where the housing market is going in the future with 100% accuracy. If the last few years are any indication there's only one predictable element of the housing market- and that's unpredictability. If you bet the market will take an upswing in the future you open yourself up to the risk of taking a huge loss on your property compared to the price you can get today.
5. Fast Home Sales are Guaranteed
What's the worst thing about selling your home on the traditional real estate market? The uncertainty of it all. The only way to guarantee you will sell your home, quickly and with a minimum of hassle, is to sell it through the innovative new avenues which have sprung up to address our presently poor housing market.
The longer you take to finalise selling your house the more of the painful uncertainties you put you and your family under. You may start having some self doubt, “Has the house value dropped?”, “Is there something wrong with the house compared to others?”, “How many more weekends do I need to keep the house spotless?” To stop this nightmare of selling a house, read our recent blog post “Sell Your House Fast, Restore Personal Control”, to find out more about managing the uncertainty of long selling times and how you can take back some personal control of the sale.
