How to Sell Your House Fast

There are many different reasons that people want to sell their houses fast. Whether it’s work relocation, threat of foreclosure or divorce. In some cases you live out of state and have a vacant property you can no longer maintain. If you have had rental home you might have grown tired of bad tenants ruining the property you own. You have options available to sell your home quickly in as is condition. We will list several of the best ways to sell your home fast.

  • Price it below market value: This of course is one of the fastest ways to sell your house, not one that will put the most money in your pocket. You can find the market value by looking through current real estate sites online or having a realtor come and provide you with a report. Pricing it at least 10% below market value may get potential buyers interested if it is in move in condition. If you are on the verge of losing your house to foreclosure, you may have to sell as is condition for much less than expected to save your credit rating. If you really need to sell your house in Seattle, Lynnwood, or La Conner options are available.
  1. Houses that need a lot of work can be sold in 7 days to a Seattle real estate investor.
  2. Real Estate Investors do not pay market value because they spend months remodeling the house to bring it up to market value.
  3. Cash for Houses companies do not use real estate agents; saving you time and money. They will buy fast and never charge fees or commissions.

Offer incentives to buyers: If you live in a house in Seattle or surrounding area, perhaps you could offer to pay buyers closing fees. Some homeowners even offer to pay escrow fees or homeowners insurance. The average home owner’s insurance policy in Washington will run you around 645 dollars. Paying for six months of property taxes may make the buyer to choose your home. This isn’t part of closing costs but paying for moving expenses could put the deal over the top and get your house sold. If you have to sell your house and move in a hurry you can include furniture that is already in the house. Of course, this may not be financially feasible for you; but if possible, consider offering an incentive so buyers will consider purchasing your home as opposed to your neighbor’s.

  1. If you don’t want or can’t afford to offer incentives there are ways for a quick hassle free house sale.
  2. Don’t want to lower price or have no equity, creative finance would be an option.
  3. Own the property outright; holding a contract and getting payments every month from a lease to own agreement.

  • Get a pre-inspection: Having a pre-inspection is a good-faith gesture that let’s potential buyers know exactly what they’re getting into when they purchase your home. Have a binder clearly visible with pictures and the full inspection report so people can go through it. If there are major issues, at least they will know ahead of time, and this could save you from a lengthy and expensive lawsuit later on! Once you receive the report you can make repairs beforehand so issues won’t come up later on.

In the meantime you are stuck paying the mortgage and upkeep.  FSBO websites can cut down on commission but the range of potential buyers is limited.
