We recently were able to successfully help a client of ours. They came to us with the question of how to sell and buy a house at the same time. As you can imagine this can be a very touchy situation and needs to be handled perfectly so that you don’t end up homeless or stuck with two mortgage payments. Suzette & Greg Reid were referred to us a couple of years ago to prepare in selling their West Jordan home (above) and to relocate to the East side of the Salt Lake City to be closer to their children’s schools. In their current home, they spent many hours commuting to their children’s activities and felt relocation closer to Salt Lake City would allow them to spend more time with their family and less time commuting. They were super conscientious in preparing the home to be listed so it would be desirable. With the help and keen eye of our experienced remodeling team Muve recommended some minor fix up to sell the home for top dollar. Some of the upgrades included paint, carpet and light fixtures. The home was move-in ready and showed very well.
This last summer we met to get it listed and start looking at new homes. Although the Reid’s had no idea on how to sell and buy a house simultaneously we created a step by step plan to make sure everything worked out in their favor. The market was strong and we got a very solid offer within 9 days and above list price. They were thrilled and we immediately started hunting for their new home. Within a couple of weeks we found a fabulous house (below) in Cottonwood Heights that was close to the children’s schools and sports activities. Everything with both homes went smoothly and we closed within 3 weeks. There was no lapse in mortgage payments and no renting while we waited to close on the new home. All of this can be accomplished but you need to have an experienced real estate team to help figure out all the details as it can end up saving you thousands of dollars.
