Many people want to sell their homes but are afraid of buying a home at the same time. They worry that they won’t find the right property in time and a lot of people don’t move forward with the process because they are worried about finding temporary housing or ending up homeless.

However, you can still buy a new home and sell your current one at the same time by using a contingency sale. Contingency sales allow you to get out there, test the market, and put yourself in a great position to sell your home without the fear of ending up homeless.

You can get your home on the market, market the home properly, and bring in a buyer. Then, we’ll figure out what price we can get for your home. While we’re doing all of that, we are also out there searching for your next home.

Don’t avoid selling because you
are worried about finding your next home.
The great thing about contingency sales is that if we don’t have a house that you’re happy with and want to move into, you don’t have to sell your home. You can back out of the deal during the negotiation period at no cost and no penalty to you.

Don’t avoid selling because
you are worried about finding
your next home. There are a lot of great opportunities out there for home sellers. The market has gone up, people have equity in their properties, and most people are now in a great position to downsize or upgrade depending on their situation.

If you want to get into something more manageable or move up into your dream home, a contingency sale is a great way to do so with zero risk. Even if the buyer is willing to pay the amount you want, if you cannot find your next home, you can back out of the deal with no penalty and you won’t be left without a home.
