2. Help! I Need to Sell My House ASAP, So I Found a New Agent
Maybe the problem with your home is your real estate agent. If they aren’t putting in the effort to market and promote your home, such as through regular open days and social media campaigns, you may not be getting enough attention to your property.
If you don’t think your agent is up to scratch, don’t be afraid to look elsewhere.
3. Make Some Updates
If you have time, try to make some quick and easy updates that can improve the curb appeal and value of your home.
Consider a new coat of paint, some external landscaping, or interior design staging to increase the interest in your home, hopefully leading to an increase in value.
4. Rent It Out
Should I sell or rent my house? If you need to move asap, renting may be a good option, especially if you can't find a buyer in the current market.
Renting gives you a new income stream, and hopefully will at least cover your mortgage. Look for a long-term tenant who is looking for a place in the area, and make sure to check references.
5. Set Up a Vacation Rental
Depending on your location, your property might be a hot commodity as a vacation rental. Are you near the ocean, tourist points of interest, or even universities?
If so, there may be many people coming to your town for leisure or work who need a place to stay for a short-term.
For rentals, you may need to bring on a local management company to look after the property and housekeeping between guests, but it can be a lucrative income source if done well.
Get Ready to Relocate
Hopefully now you have a better understanding of what to do if ‘I need to sell my house asap!’, a common problem for many relocating for work.
However, with the options above, you can decide if you want to rent, sell, or wait out the market, and make the choice that’s best for your financial situation.
Then, you can relocate and start enjoying your new life!
