difficult. About forty to fifty percent of marriages ended in divorce last year, and the rate is even higher for subsequent marriages. If you are going through a divorce right now, you are probably wondering what happens to your Mercer County property after
Who Keeps the Property?
This is something you and your soon to be ex-partner will have to decide. One of you, or neither of you, will have ownership of the
property. Most divorces will require the sale of the property because both parties want to keep it. Usually, the couple decides to list the property and split the proceeds. Sometimes, however, the sale process drags on and on, especially if the property does
not receive very many offers from being listed with an agent. Selling directly to The Cardwell Thaxton Group might save you some time, and headaches.
Why Sell Direct?
Professional home buyers in Mercer County typically close faster than traditional home buyers. Traditional home purchases usually require
qualifications from banks, mortgage underwriting time, property inspection time and the buyer may not end up qualifying in the end. When you sell property through traditional real estate agents, the usual commission is 3% per side, so if you sell your home
for $300,000, you would have to pay $18,000 in commissions alone!
Purchasing Homes As-Is
Professional home buyers in Mercer County will usually purchase homes as-is. As a seller, this means you do not have to worry about
repairs before closing or any other additional expenses you were not planning on. There are some companies that do not require inspections which makes it a truly as-is transaction.
Lower Risk Transactions
Selling to a professional home buyer is extremely straight forward. They will lay out every step of the process and usually have shortened,
very clear contracts that are simple as-is purchase agreements. You will also have lessened exposure to legal risks. You won’t have to worry about the buyer finding something you didn’t know you didn’t disclose or something they don’t like about the home or
the neighborhood. Under most traditional real estate contracts, there is a potential for the buyer to sue you if they feel they didn’t get all of the information, or if they feel the facts were misconstrued. Professional home buyers already know the state
of the property, and they are willing to take on that risk.
When you decide to use a professional home buyer in Mercer County, you will not have to worry about going through a roller coaster of
emotions. There are no frustrating, middle-of-dinner phone calls asking if you are available to show your home. You don’t have to worry about leaving your home spotless every day before heading to work, just in case there is a showing while you’re gone. You
don’t have to worry about possibly running into a buyer’s agent or their clients or dealing with them asking you questions that you really shouldn’t answer anyway. You also don’t have to worry about buyers arguing with you over which furniture you are taking
and what you are leaving.
Move Out Time
Professional home buyers are in it for the investment. They are not expecting to move into the home on the day of closing. Most home
buyers will allow a move-out time frame after closing to allow you to relocate at your own pace. This is extremely helpful, especially with such quick closing time frames. Also, you may not even have to clean the home when you leave. You can simply pack your
personal items and furniture you want to keep and leave the rest.
