Sell Your House For Cash With No Strings

Have you ever thought about how difficult and stressful it can be to sell a house. There are so many things to consider when making such a huge life decision. Among them are where will you go once the home is sold? How long can you hold on to the home if it does not sell quickly? What options do you have in your area for selling a home? What is the value of your home? How have other homes in your area done when others have sold? What type of financing and terms are you willing to accept for your home? 

These are only a few of the items Home owners looking to sell will want to be thinking about. Some home owners don't have any choice but to sell and to sell immediately. In cases of foreclosure there is only a limited amount of time for owners to make a sale and salvage their financial future and security. A foreclosure is a messy process that is not pleasant for anyone, but can be especially devastating for the home owner.

When times get tough and it seems there may be no way to save yourself from impending repossession of your home, and the absolute destruction of your good name, there may be a couple of options you have not thought about. Speak with the bank that holds your mortgage and let them know you are trying to sell your home, they may be able to extend the amount of time you have before the foreclosure is completed. They may also be able to give you suggestions for investors such as Fast Move that may want to cash you out of your home. When it comes to paying cash for your house the only way to go is with an investor or investment company. 

Selling your house for cash to an investor can be both extremely quick and highly effective at getting you out of proceedings that are time essential. Saving your credit and getting you out of the mortgage payments that are holding you down. You will have to be prepared to move out of the residence quickly as the home may close very quickly and possession immediately passes to the new owner. There are few things in life that can feel better than financial security and the knowledge that you are not falling further into debt with no light at the end of the tunnel. A quick short-sale to an investor or investment company may be exactly what you need to save you from your high variable interest rate mortgage or even from life's unexpected tragedies. Even if you are not yet ready to sell you home, you may want to take a look at the options in your area so you have the right knowledge and power when the time comes.

Don't fret, even though the real estate market looks bleak and overwhelming sometimes, there are many ways to achieve a quick cash deal for your house that may make all your problems go away. Selling your house for cash can be a dream come true.

Making Your Fortune with a Rental Property

This economy offers up some rare opportunities to invest in properties at great rates that allow for a significant return on your initial investment. Property investors will recognize the potential that the current market provides. With so many factors making home buying an investment opportunity it may be the right time to consider purchasing properties to lease out to renters for an extra source of funds, or even as your primary source of income generation.       

The  UK housing market is swamped with homes that have been on the market for extended periods of time. The recent downturn in the economy has created a major slow down in the ability of buyers to get financing. The finance companies are in a cautious phase and are not offering low cost financing to as many buyers as they used too. This abundance of homes causes steep competition between sellers to provide lower prices to entice buyers into making a purchase. There are also an extremely high number of homes for sale on the foreclosure lists of most states.

The good news is that the market is on the repair and things look like they are on their way up. Investors will find that there are a significant number of people looking to rent quality homes since they are unable to either afford or qualify for a home purchase of their own. These families are often hoping to enjoy the benefits of a home in a standard neighbourhood and do not want to live in an apartment complex or other rental style facility. They want to have the freedom of a lease without the feeling that they are renters.

If rental properties were purchased in quality neighbourhoods, then they will likely spend much of their time full, providing tremendous benefits to the home owner. Renters can sometimes even go beyond paying the mortgage payment and insurance on the home. When the home was purchased at a reasonable price the owner will reap the most benefits. Investors that own multiple properties can truly generate significant income from the properties alone.

Rental homes provide benefits to both those that are looking for rental homes and those that are looking for the income generated from the ownership of these homes. Investors that are not looking to handle their rental homes on their own can easily find a rental agency to manage their properties.

The benefits of purchasing properties off the foreclosure list or from motivated buyers can make property investing a significantly inspired choice. Watch the MLS for opportunities that are just too good to pass up; when you are tired of maintaining the rental properties, they can be sold at a profit when the market regains its strength.

Whether you are looking for rental properties or looking to rent a property having the knowledge and understanding of the housing market and its trends will help you to find just what you are looking for. When you are looking for that special home to rent, check your rental agencies. When you are looking for that special home to purchase take a look at the foreclosure lists in your area. 

If you have a property to sell and are looking for a quick sale contact Fast Move today!

What's the WORST thing about selling your house?

We have been asking our sellers what they hate about selling their house. Here is what they told us... do any of them sound familiar to you? Leave us a comment and let us know what you dislike the most.

“Estate agents. Pure and simple. They ask for loads of money but don’t seem to be doing much at all to try and help me sell my house. It’s been on the market for eighteen months and I’ve already lost out on the house I wanted to move to. I really feel like they don’t care.” Joanie G

 “Having to keep the house spotless for the viewings. We don’t want to turn anyone down, and we’re in the house all day, so sometimes the estate agent calls us up and asks to bring someone round right away. We have to agree, so we have to keep the house tidy all the time, and my husband has to run out with our dog as we’re worried our boisterous Doberman will put people off!” Helen V

 “The worst thing for me is not knowing that it will go through. Our sale has fallen through twice now. Once on the day before we were due to move. I’ve stopped getting excited when we accept an offer now as it just never actually seems to happen.” Kate F

 “Having people traipsing round my house making comments to each other. I know shouldn’t but I take it personally when they say the d├ęcor is outdated or call my beautiful bathroom pokey!” Janet F

“All the waiting is the most stressful part. In the past all my houses have sold quickly. Selling is always stressful but this time has been much worse. There’s not been much interest and I know other people who are trying to sell too and it seems to be the same for everyone. The market is incredibly slow and everyone is having to wait ages before they find a buyer.” Ian C

“The biggest issue I had was when my next door neighbour put her house up for sale for ten grand less than ours. The houses are virtually identical, so obviously someone is going to opt for the cheaper one, but we just can’t afford to go that low, so we’re going to probably have to wait for hers to sell first before anyone will buy ours.” Claudia D

“The lack of interest. Our house is pretty nice, it’s in good condition, but we’ve had no offers and only a handful of viewings. It’s depressing! We just can’t work out what the problem is, we’re not getting any real feedback” Katy S

If selling your house is becoming a struggle we may be able to help. Contact the team at Fastmove today and let us make you an offer!

Sell Your House For CASH Right Now!

The housing market is inundated with homes that are selling for below market value, it is certainly what is considered a buyer's market lately. Home owners are getting more and more desperate to sell homes that have been listed for long periods of time. Perhaps they want to move to a new location for school, work or social reasons, and being stuck in their home and mortgage is putting a serious damper on those plans. Perhaps financial difficulties are interfering with their ability to continue making payments on a high interest rate or expensive mortgage. When finances or a work relocation are at stake, it sometimes becomes urgent to find a new way of getting your home sold quickly and securely. 

Cash sales provide sellers with nearly instant gratification as they can take only a couple of days to complete and the home seller can be home free with a pocket full of money. There are a few excellent options when you think it is time to seek out a cash out sale.

The first option is to list with a realtor, but to specify that you are only interested in cash offers. This can take a long time, and you still have to pay the commission to the realtor when the sale is complete. Another downside to this type of arrangement is that once a buyer is found it may take around thirty days to close the deal and put money into your hands.

The faster option is to seek out investors who are looking for just this type of deal, usually a Cash for Homes agency. Now obviously you will not get the amount for your home that you would have gotten selling it   through the typical sale channels, but you will save the commissions you would have had to pay which can equate to quite a large sum of money. The sale of your home to an investor or investment firm can be handled quickly and easily with as little as twenty four hours sometimes. When times are tough and you need to get that home sold quickly, this may be the perfect solution for you.

Selling a home is serious business and you will want to know all your options before making any decisions. Take the time to check out the many ways that home mortgages are sold and transferred to ensure you make the decision that fits your financial needs and fits within the time restrictions you are under. If you are having financial difficulties, there are sometimes investors that your mortgage holder can send you to in order to help you avoid foreclosure. Speak to people who work in the industry and you are sure to wind up with a couple of names to check out.

The sale of a home does not have to take months or even years, it can be a simple and effortless experience if you research all that is available to help you make the move you and your family needs. Don't fall into the belief there is only one way to sell a home, creativity can save the day.

Improving the Chances of Securing your Dream Home

When the housing market is hot, it can be difficult to move quickly enough to get the home of your dreams. With so many people in search of nice homes, it is important to be ready when the right house comes along.  Listed below are a few tips for improving your chances of getting the home of your dreams once it comes on the market.  Will you take advantage of these tips...?

Get preapproved to buy a home
You will have better chances of getting the home of your dreams if you are preapproved beforehand.  Before you even bid on a property be sure that you can guarantee to the sellers that you will be able to get financing for the home.  Preapproval often motivates sellers to accept your offers.  Go to your local bank and see if you can afford to buy a new home before you set out on an adventure to buy one. 

Don’t bid too low on a property
Your dream home is likely the dream home of someone else.  For this reason, it is essential that you bid properly on the property.  A bid that is too low will be turned down immediately.  Bid what the home is worth to increase your chances of being the winning bidder.  Try to find out how many other people are interested in the property before you make a bid.

Have a buying agent to let your know when properties come on the market
When searching for a home, it can be helpful to have a buying agent let you know when property comes on the market.  This allows you first chance at whatever properties come up and increases your chances of getting the home of your dreams.  There are many incentives to using a buying agency to buy a new home.  

Sell you existing property first
It can be hard to negotiate with sellers if you need to sell your property first.  To increase your chances of getting the home, sell your existing property before you set out on the journey to buy a new property. 

Use the tips listed above to improve your chances of buying your dream home.  From getting preapproval from the bank to bidding correctly on the property, there are things that you can do to ensure that you walk away on the better end of the deal.
