We are dealing with unprecedented times! Just last month we were going on with our lives as normal, then COVID-19 came in and threw the world on its head. As we all adapt to these changing ways of life, people are wondering if everything has just stopped?
The answer is no. Whether we are working from home, learning virtually, or keeping up with friends through video calls, things are still moving right song.
We are a strong city, located in a strong country. Adapting is what we do. HouseBuyerCash.com is dedicated to helping you with all of your real estate needs no matter what is going on in the world. Below are some of the questions we have been receiving since all of this began. If you have any other questions, we are happy to answer them. Please reach out to HouseBuyerCash.com today at (973) 384-1054.
Can you still sell your house during the coronavirus pandemic?
Yes you can! A house is a product that people will always NEED, people will always need a place to live. We at House Buyer Cash also sell houses and we were concerned just like you about being able to sell our houses during this pandemic and we’ve been pleasantly surprised with one of our houses still receiving multiple offers. People are still buying houses and in my opinion because there are fewer sellers on the market your house may receive more attention from serious buyers.
What if I need to sell right away?
If you are in a situation that you need to sell your property right away for whatever reason we understand, the last thing you need right now is another headache from a property that may be costing you money or stress. My suggestion is to work with a direct buyer with cash available to purchase your house outright, without mortgage contingencies or inspection contingencies (especially if your house is a fixer upper). We are seeing more and more mortgage companies pulling out of financing just days before closing, leaving buyers and sellers scrambling to find the money to purchase houses at the last minute. This can cause huge delays for mortgage buyers to close.
How can HouseBuyerCash.com help me sell my house in New Jersey with everything going on?
We at house buyer cash are very careful to follow social distancing guidelines. so the first thing we would do is have a phone conversation or a video conversation whichever one is easier for you to talk a little bit about the house, if over the phone it sounds like there’s something that will you be able to help you with we will move forward to the next step which is looking at the interior of the house.
If you have pictures or video of the interior we can use those to make an offer. If you don’t, we will need to go look at the house but we would require the house to be vacant or at least nobody living there. This will be a quick 5 minute walk through just to determine if the house doesn’t have any structural or environmental damages.
From there we will be able to make you a cash offer, if it works for you we can move forward with the contract and can schedule a closing date that works for you.
Should I wait for the Coronavirus to be over before trying to sell my house?
It really depends on you and your situation, if you have time to wait maybe that’s a good option for you, however, you might consider putting it up for sale now because of the low inventory in the market could potentially get you higher offers.
If you have a vacant property that you need to sell right away, I think this is the best time for you to put it up in the market. You will be ahead of other homeowners that choose not to put their house up for sale and you don’t necessarily have to be in the house or go anywhere to show it.
Can I stay in the house until this is all over?
Yes! If you are living in the house we can still make you an offer without having to come into the house and if you need time to look for a new place to go or just want to wait for everything to subside we can certainly work with you on that. We are all in this together so it’s important to work out solutions that will keep everyone involved healthy and safe
