The Best Homes Sell Fast For Top Dollar
Top dollar and a quick sale are not mutually exclusive. In the Boulder market, when clients ask, “can I sell my home fast?” The answer is, “yes, houses sell very fast in Boulder, frequently for top dollar.” The sellers market conditions of the past few years have added fuel to this fire with homes frequently under contract in a matter of days for list price or better.
But not every real estate transaction seeking a quick outcome happens in the best part of the market.
Parents Expecting Stork
A growing family can be a good reason to sell the current home and get another. Moms will frequently feel the need to be settled more quickly than Dads. Having the baby’s nursery set up and ready to go is a real issue. Waiting to the last moment to sell and buy can be stressful. Being first time parents or expecting twins can add to that stress. Don’t wait for the last moment to make your move.
The Cash Myth
Don’t be fooled by the cash myth. This one has been circulating in real estate circles since I entered the industry back in the mid nineties. There are investors out there willing to pay cash. No loan approval, no appraisal contingency, a quick closing. It sounds perfect if your goal is to Sell my home fast, but is the number one goal to be closed in a heartbeat? Or are you working to get top dollar.
Investor buyers offering all cash and a super fast closing might not be in your best interests unless you truly are facing a hardship.
Facing Hard Times, Sell my home fast
Regardless of the market conditions. sometimes you just need to get your home sold quickly. Now and again, there is the opportunity to relocate for an opportunity. And you need your house sold quickly. Or unfortunately, owners are facing a divorce. It’s not that you want to move, but you need to get the house sold for top dollar closed quickly and move onto a healthier relationship status.
I had a client contact me a couple of years ago, asking me to “please sell my home fast because I’ve got bad tenants.” That rental was causing a great deal of unnecessary stress in life. During 2013 when Boulder was devastated with flooding, owners were working to avoid foreclosure and needed a quick sale. There have even been articles in the paper about mobile home owners facing tax lien sales.
The fact is, sometimes, an owner just needs a house sold quickly to avoid a hardship beyond his or her control. If you find yourself having to sell, take action. The sooner you speak with a real estate professional, the better. Ideally, you’ll have time to get the highest and best price.
Why A Slow Sale At Top Dollar Trumps Fast
Sometimes, being the gal that is able to say, My Realtor didn’t sell my home fast, he focused on getting top dollar and I couldn’t be happier is the best outcome. It really comes down to what are your biggest priorities in getting your house sold. Give me a call or contact now to discuss your priorities in getting your house sold now.
Don’t overestimate the power of the Force. Or the impact of staging and color. When it comes getting a fast sale for top dollar, a well staged home can tell a story or narrative, appealing to Boulder home buyers emotionally and helping to close that quick sale.
