How To Sell Your Home If You Are Faced With A Foreclosure

Aug 30, 2007
If you're facing a bank foreclosure or repossession of your house, then you may be desperate to sell it. Usually this means just one thing: You'll have to settle for less money in exchange for a faster turnover. So if it's possible to get into a financial situation that will allow you to sell the house at your own pace, then you should definitely do so. You will have to decide how much of a tradeoff you are willing to make. There are quite a few options for desperate sellers, and the one you choose will depend on how fast you need to sell your home, and how much of the market value you want to earn.

You can take some preparations to make your house sell quicker through traditional methods. You should be ready to vacate the house soon, so that means it could be a good idea to pack up stuff you aren't going to use, and maybe even put some furniture into storage (whether it's at a unit or in the garage of a friend). Depending on the state of your home, you might benefit from cleaning the carpets thoroughly, or even painting the walls. It's also a good idea to get your home inspected professionally for any defects that may have occurred in the structure, the pipes, or the electric wiring. A certification from an inspector can move the sale process along a lot quicker.

Next, you will need to talk with a real estate agent about getting your house sold as fast as possible. The exact steps you will take depend on many things, such as your house, the local market at the time, and how fast you need to sell. Tell the real estate agent the date you need to sell by. If they say it's impossible to sell it that fast, then you'll either have to reevaluate your situation, or find another real estate agent. If it is possible, then you will have to find out if there is a catch to selling it that fast. Will you get as much money as you would regularly?

There's another option that is very intimidating, but it can be one of the speediest ways to get rid of your house. That option is to sell it yourself. You can use the internet, newspapers, and fliers to find a buyer. After you find someone who is interested, you can move as quickly as you like.

Consider all of your options carefully, try not to rush things unless you really need to, and you'll surely have a successful experience.
