Buying and Selling a Home on the Same Day
4:37 pm cdt
Whoa, it's been a busy summer! I have been so busy helping clients buy and sell. What's the most
common thing I've seen? People buying and selling on the same day. It's required sometimes, but it can be precarious. Here's
a few tips I have if you're doing a buy/sale on the same day.
1) Schedule your movers to
move your belongings out the day prior to closing. Buyers do not want to do a walk through of your home prior to closing and
see your belongings still there, or that you are still moving out. Buyers want to see your home clean and empty.
2) And speaking of clean and empty, don't leave trash in the home. Don't leave stuff in the fridge or the
freezer. Broom clean condition is required, a professional cleaning service is nice. Don't leave big furniture or mattresses
in the home that you don't want for the new buyer to deal with.
3) Let your
attorney attend your sale in the morning with your pre-signed documents. You don't need to be there and you have other things
you can be doing during that time. You don't need to attend the sale of your home.
DO however, need to attend the purchase of your new home, unless you've made arrangements with your lender and attorney to
5) Don't schedule movers for 1:00 when your buy is at noon. Give yourself
at least three hours for closing. They usually don't take that long, but are sure to if you have a moving truck sitting outside
your new home.
6) RELAX! Things don't always go perfectly when you're trying to coordinate
a million things. Let your real estate professionals help you and handle the details.
