In 1964, the Rolling Stones crooned that “time is on my side.” While this is all well and good for rock and roll, time generally isn’t on one’s side in the real world. Time flies, whether one is having fun or not. And time is definitely not something a person has when they need to sell their house quickly.
There are a lot of reasons a San Diego resident might need to sell their house quickly. Here are some of the top reasons:
1) A New Job
In a town with a thriving Navy and Coast Guard population, a lot of people come and go as promotions are earned and as recruits are needed at new posts in different parts of the country. Sometimes these changes happen quickly, and selling a house can be one more thing on a list of things to do before the big move begins. Other forms of industry and business also frequently move their employees from town to town. When this happens, it’s necessary to find ways to quickly deal with the situation in order to avoid suddenly being burdened with two mortgages in two different cities.
Divorce can be a painful and drawn-out ordeal that takes a huge toll on everyone it touches. There are so many things to consider: new living arrangements, who gets great grandma’s treasured heirloom lamp, custody arrangements, and the division of assets. Often selling a shared home quickly can be one solution to making the whole process a bit easier. Some online websites offer multiple package deals that might include buying a house as is for cash or doing renovations in order to get the house ready for the market in exchange for a percentage of the final sale. Whichever method one chooses, selling a house quickly can be one less thing to think about and argue over as the divorce proceedings drag on.
As Ben Franklin once said, there is nothing in life that is as certain as death and taxes, and sadly, he was right. Death is an inevitable conclusion to happy times, memories made, and legacies left behind. When a loved one passes away, the last thing one wants to worry about is the real estate assets, what to do with a home or property, or who in the family will be in charge of taking care of it. A quick sale is often the best decision for families in order to focus their attention on the grieving process and on happier times ahead.
Whatever the reason, quickly selling a home can be a source of relief for the seller in order for a new chapter of their lives to begin.
