home buying and selling simultaneously
The biggest worry among those who want to buy a home while also selling in Sacramento is that they will be homeless, i.e., have no place to live. This is why the first question that passes through my lips when I am talking with sellers about listing their home is whether they have a place to go. Other agents might focus on the home’s updates, location or sales price, but I focus on my clients. Nothing else matters if home sellers are struggling with future plans.
It’s also difficult for sellers to imagine buying and selling at the same time because it can be tricky to coordinate concurrent closings. Sellers want to know if they should buy first and then sell, because that’s where their hearts lie. They need to know where they are going. For some, that need overrides maximizing profit potential on the sale, but that’s where this Sacramento Realtor comes in. I tell everybody to sell first and then buy, because they can remove risk by making the sale of their home contingent on finding a replacement property, but they often want to do it the other way around, and that’s their choice. It’s OK. I make it work that way, too, even though it’s more of a challenge to get an offer accepted in a seller’s market when your home isn’t even on the market.
