Buying and Selling Simultaneously

Buying and selling at the same time. It’s not for the faint of heart, but our clients do it all the time. And in the end, they’re all smiles!
So today, we're sharing our top tips for maintaining your sanity if you’re staring down both sides of a real estate transaction.  
1. Involve us in the early stages of buying and selling.
2. Consider options for temporary housing. While the stars may align and you may not need them, a plan for where you’ll go in between selling and buying will smooth the rough edges of the process. 
3. Get “paperwork ready” to buy and “house ready” to sell. Before you’re up to your eyeballs in showings on either side, get pre-approved and make any necessary repairs to your home. You don’t want to be scrambling on either.
4. Say yes to seeing “just listed” homes. If your search has stalled, be willing to drop everything when your agent calls with a new listing. The sooner you can put eyes on a home, the sooner you’ll be out of limbo.
5. Trade dollars for a quick closing. It may be worth a buyer’s home warranty to get a 30-day closing. Empower your agent to negotiate a quick closing so you can step into your forever home as soon as your home closes. 
Selling and buying is a big deal, but that’s why we're here. Save this one for later, and reach out if you have questions about how the process works.
