Job Relocation and Selling Your Wisconsin House Fast
Congratulations—you accepted a new job offer! There’s only one problem: the job is out of state and you own a house in Wisconsin. That means you need to sell your house fast.
As this realization creeps in, the stress of selling starts to feel stronger than the excitement of landing a new job. That’s natural. So, take a deep breath and read on, because this article explains how to sell your Wisconsin house when you get a job out of state.
Before you start preparing to sell your home and searching for a new, find out if your employer offers a relocation package. If your employer does, find out what it includes. If there is no relocation package, see if you can negotiate one.
Typically, relocation packages include the following:
- Packing service
- Moving company insurance coverage
- Paid-for house hunting trip
- Temporary housing
- Auto travel reimbursement
- Other relocation expenses
- Home-selling assistance
The last bullet point—home-selling assistance—is perhaps the most important. A company might help you sell your current home. They can do this either through paid advertising or reimbursement fees for any lost profit as a result of a quick home sale.
But whether your company will help you sell your home or not, the bottom line is you’ll want to sell your home as fast as possible. You definitely don’t want to get stuck paying two mortgages at one time.
How to sell my Wisconsin house fast
For many people, it’s common knowledge that selling a house means hiring a realtor, sprucing it up, investing in upgrades where needed, taking professional photos, decluttering, having open houses, and more. However, it takes substantial time to do all that—and you don’t have time.
Whatever assistance your new employer may offer—if they offer any—probably feels insignificant when you think of everything you must do to sell your house.
But what if the common knowledge about selling a house doesn’t tell the whole story?
Real estate investor to the rescue
If you have all the time in the world, working with a realtor and investing in upgrades makes sense. But time is of the essence. This is where the services of a real estate investor can come to your rescue.
Most real estate investment companies—like Fair Deal Home Buyers—buy homes in “as is” condition. That means you don’t have to invest in expensive and time-consuming repairs. Most such companies also buy houses for cash. What that means is they have the money on hand to buy your house; so, there is no risk of a buyer’s loan not coming through at the last minute.
Although we can’t speak for other companies, from the moment you pick up the phone and call us, we can give you an offer on your house with 24 hours or less. If you accept our offer, we can buy your house in as little as seven days.
