The 4 challenges of Selling and Buying at the same time.

When you're selling and buying a home at the same time, it's important to hire an experienced real estate agent who can help you navigate the process and coordinate the timelines of both sales. There will be a lot of paperwork and people involved in both transactions, so having someone who knows the ins and outs of simultaneous closings will be key. Here are the four most important aspects of a sell/buy transaction:

What comes first? Knowing when to shop for a new home and list your current home and how to negotiate extra time is crucial for keeping costs down.



Knowing what to negotiate for in both transactions to ensure there is enough time to close on both properties on the same day will save you time and money.

Client Review Five Stars

"I have been fortunate to work with Brandon twice. He sold my home within 48 hours after it went on the market. Brandon is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He consistently provided me with needed steps to get tasks done necessary to complete the purchase. Recently, Brandon helped us find our new home. Again, always professional and making sure as buyers we were doing everything needed to ensure a successful closing. I highly recommend using Brandon for whether you are buying or selling a home."

Do you list first, secure a contract, and then shop for a new home? Or do you find property, get it under contract, and then find a buyer for your home?

We can go over the pros and cons of each option and help you prepare for the next steps. Give us a call or download our fact sheet to see what option is best for your unique situation.
