Which comes 1st, the listing or the purchase?

Real Estate Agent with JH Realty Partners 6501309180

Yes, I feel like a broken record - we need listings, we have limited inventory - here is the latest news article about our short inventory crisis.


However, Mr and Ms. homeowner you would love to sell and move but then where would you go?


It’s like which comes first the chicken or the egg - the listing or the purchase?


As with this problem also comes being a strong buyer as if you find your dream home, most likely it’s 30 others dream home and you will enter into a competitive bid situation, so what can you do other than price to make your offer strong? Not have your offer contingent on a sale of your home is one thing.


Working on our Creative Solution for this ongoing dilemma I have come up with a few idea’s.


Short term rental - now you say you do not want to move twice - but what if you could find a furnished home for short term? Would you consider this option?


As let's look at the facts


  • Limited inventory - Sellers market top dollar for your home!


  • Low low interest rates - great time to buy at these rates, yes you may pay a bit more for a home but it will be offset by the low interest rate and the top dollar you got for your home!


Yes you can have your cake and eat it too.


Here is a list of idea’s to look into


Airbnb - Spring is almost here - some great properties on the lake here - have a vacation while looking for your next home to buy.


Forrent.com has a catigory for short term rentals - furnished


Exstended stay hotels in Grand Rapids can you say "staycation"


Corporate Housing has some upper scale options.


If you know if other options we would love your comments to add to the list!


The Gordon Group prides themselfs on creative solutions and looking outside the box for the best solution for your situation as there are not 2 home buyers or sellers alike. We listen to your needs and find a way to make it happen.


Give us a call for a no pressure consult, we would love to make your dream come true!
