We have helped our sellers get creative with a couple of different Strategies.
#1 List your home for sale and find a buyer that will give you a flexible closing date, which allows you time to look for a new home.
#2 List your home for sale, close quickly and ask your buyer to lease back to you (so you can stay in your home) for a set amount of time which allows you to look for a new home and not have a home sale contingency.
#3 List your home for sale and then lease a rental short term. Look for apartment communities that allow short term rentals or by the shore there are many winter rental options (Oct-May lease agreements) which can give you the time you need to shop around without committing to an annual lease.
#4 List your home and move in with your family. If you have any amazing family or friends willing to take you in, this could be a good option to cash out and hold tight till the right property comes along.
#5 Use Cash from a retirement account to buy a home before selling your existing home then get a mortgage on it later to replace the funds in your retirement account or see if you qualify with a mortgage lender to obtain a new mortgage before you sell
#6 Buy a home before selling using Annie Mac's "Buy Now Sell Later" Program which gives you cash to buy a home before selling and then allows you to list your home afterwards within a 6 month time frame. Contact us for more info about this new and exciting opportunity!
