It is not uncommon for a young couple to purchase what is known as a "starter home". One that is just the right size for the two of them and priced just within budget to begin a life together with plans to move into a larger home to start a family.
Life moves quickly and some couples can find themselves expecting a bundle of joy before they have planned to look for a larger family friendly home. It can seem like a stressful ordeal to sell a home quickly and move into a new one that is more accommodating before baby arrivals, but it is not impossible.
One option is to get your home in top show worthy condition and list on the traditional market in hopes to sell as soon as possible. You will need to consult an experienced local agent and list at the right price. When selling a home quickly the correct listing price is crucial. Marketing is also very very important. You will want to use every outlet of marketing your home to reach the most buyers possible. Of course you will need to be prepared for showing appointments on a moment’s notice and have the house spotless at all times until the home is shown. This can be difficult if you are pregnant and not feeling well or are tired.
If you want to bypass the fixing up and preparing of your home, the constant buyer showings, and the periods of unknown hoping and waiting you may want to consider contacting a cash home buyer. Selling your home for cash will allow you to sell your home as is without spending money on repairs or freshening up. You will get an all cash offer in anywhere from a few hours to a few days and close within a few weeks instead of months. This will enable you to move on to buying that first family home with room to grow as a family.

Of course not all cash home buyers will offer you fair market value. Using a qualified real estate agent to help price and market your home is really one of the best ways to get the most profit from your home. If you are in a hurry and don't care about the price (said no one ever) then an instant cash buyer might be worth it, but in most cases, having an agent that knows the area, the subdivision and the mirco market is really the best way to go about selling for top dollar.
