Thinking of Selling your home but you’re hesitant to sell in fear you will not find a new home in time? I totally get it… it’s a stressful situation and one that could make you lose sleep over! Hi I’m Tanja Odzak-Goppold with Keller Williams and I’m a top producing agent here in Oakland and the Greater East Bay area. I understand that the home buying and selling process can be stressful, especially when you have to do both…. Sell and Buy. Things can get complicated if your closings don’t align or it takes longer to sell or buy a house than anticipated. So what happens when you sell your home and you have not found your new home yet? Well, you’re wondering where the heck are you going to live? Well, here are a few options you can consider. You can consider finding a home to rent. Renting a house for a bit will give you more time to look for that perfect home without having to “settle” just because you feel you have to rush and pick one. Another possibility is to do a rent back option. In this option you complete the closing process with the buyer and then both parties agree to let you stay in the house while you rent the home back from the new owner. This is a good option if the new owners are not in any hurry to move but it also is good for you because then you’ll be in a stronger position when you go to buy. Another option is to ask the buyer to extend their escrow, meaning you ask the buyers if they are willing to push back the closing date to give you a little more time. You could also consider unlisted or off market properties. Bottom line, is that there are options.
My team and I can explain these options in more detail and help guide you through this process. There are a few more strategies that are available that we could discuss to help you “bridge the gap”. I would be happy to help walk you through all your options and to help you find the best solution that will work for you and your family.
