How To Sell Your Home
Selling your home is a big deal. You have so many memories... and so much stuff to pack! But if you have decided it's time to move on - whether your family is growing, you suddenly became an empty nest-er, or you just want to live closer to work; selling your home is the first step to the next chapter in your life. You're in luck.. the DFW area has seen a steady rise in home values over the last few years. A lot of sellers find themselves receiving multiple offers within days of listing their home. That's where I come in! There is a different method to selling based on the type of ownership. What type of property owner are you?
The Short Term Owner - This owner has only recently purchased their home. They paid the minimum required down payment at the time of purchase, and have paid their monthly mortgage on time. The home is in good shape and property values have risen slightly. We can help these owners sell their home with no problem, and maybe even send them home with a little bit of profit!
The Mid Term Owner - This owner bought their home 5-15 years ago. They are current on their mortgage and have made a few improvements to the property over the years. The property values around their home have risen substantially since they first moved in. They will be able to make a handsome profit at closing, which can be used to help buy their new home!
The Long Term Owner - This owner is really settled in. Having lived in the home for more than 15 years, they have a great amount of equity, if they haven't paid the home off already. They have made improvements, updating or upgrading most areas of the home in the time they have lived there. They are ready to cash out and find a new place to call home.
The Upside Down Owner - Luckily, this type of owner is getting more and more rare. Unfortunately, some homeowners are still dealing with the fact that they were given a loan in an amount that way exceeded the value of their home. They are stuck paying high interest rates because most lenders won't approve a refinance on a property that's upside down. IF THIS IS YOU... please do not feel defeated. I list your type here because I can help you! We love to think outside the box and come up with unique ways to make sure no one is overlooked, no matter what their situation is. The sooner you contact me, the sooner we can find your solution.
The Distressed Owner - This is the owner who is struggling. They are usually at least a few payments behind.. and typically have already started receiving foreclosure notices in the mail. The home needs work and they have been told by other agents that there is nothing they can do, except try a short sale or bankruptcy. Both of these options take a lasting toll on your credit. THEY ARE NOT YOUR ONLY OPTION! A friend came to me a few months ago, her husband hadn't told her that their home was going to foreclosure until it was already up for auction. She was sure there was nothing that could be done in the three weeks they had left... I proved her wrong. The day before the auction we got the house sold, covering all required expenses and they even left with a few hundred dollars profit!
