Recently met with a family who is in the process of selling one house, buying another house, and selling their current residence. That's three transactions at the same time. Can you see the stressful situation with the family all at home and in the middle of a pandemic?
Upon evaluating their home, they had questions for me:
How much can you sell this for? How much do we need to do? What if we sell as is? Can we have a fast settlement? How long will it take if we sell it as is? If we put money in to make it show house ready, how much could we get for it? How long would that take?
Remember three houses, three settlements all to happen in about six weeks.
My questions for the homeowner:
How much do you owe? How much do you need to move forward? What is your time frame? How long will it take you to clear out this house? How long will it take to get the contractors in for estimates? How long to finish the repairs? What will the market be like by then? Interest rates? How much time and energy do you have to spend on redoing this property?
At the least, it needs full paint, some outside maintenance, some window repairs, some roof repairs, and some massive trees that need removing.
Stay tuned, and I will let you know what decision they make.
