How exciting it is to search for, view, tour, and plan a move into a new construction home. A fresh start is right around the corner in a new neighborhood with new friends to meet and a new place for you and your family to grow. Surely, this is one of the greatest transitions you’ll make in life.
The next step: Sell your current home. Our tip: Do it the new way.
Selling your home sounds daunting, but you don’t have to let the idea dampen your spirits as you’re getting ready to make such a happy life change. Obviously, home selling has been known to take a toll on homeowners; navigating the process while timing it just right to move in to your new place and simultaneously sell your old one is traditionally a conundrum. On one hand, you don’t want to become homeless for a period, on the other, you’d prefer not to pay two mortgages at the same time.
So, what are your options when you’re getting ready to move in to your brand-new home and working on selling the current one? You can work on selling early and move in to a short-term rental or stay with family, given logistics like location and space work out. You can hold on to and continue to live in the old home until your new build is complete, in which case you can close on the sale after you move and deal with the two mortgages in the meantime. Or you can make the transition the new way: Sell your home to Offerpad, move out of it and in to your new build on the aligned dates of your choosing.
Offerpad is here to help you enjoy the new home feeling without getting bogged down by logistics and the struggles of selling your old place. And to top it off, when you’re buying your new home from a builder partnered with Offerpad, you get added benefits that will make your move in (and out) as simple as possible.
Here are 6 reasons to sell to Offerpad when moving in to a new build:
1. An Instant Offer on your Home
Offerpad is already known for making fast, comprehensive purchase offers on homes. When sellers are interested in what Offerpad might purchase their home for, they simply request a free offer on the Offerpad website and can expect to hear back within 24 hours. In possibly less time than it will take to tour a model home, dream up how you might furnish it and talk with the sales agent about your lot and potential move in date, Offerpad can have your home offer to you.
2. A Huge, Flexible Closing Window
It is Offerpad’s primary goal to give you freedom to move at your convenience. We typically allow sellers to stay in the home they’re selling for up to 90 days while they make arrangements and complete the move. Homebuyers moving in to a new build get a nice and big closing window to rest assured that accommodations are taken care of while the builder works, and you move. Offerpad can give you up to 6 months! That’s right, you can live in your home for up to 6 months while you wait for your new home to be finished and you make the move from old to new. That means no lapse in housing, no double mortgage, no stress. All you have to do is stay excited for your new home and exciting adventure.
3. An Extended Stay after Closing
We understand that every day matters. Selling a home is a big deal. It’s a place to live, grow roots, and build memories but it’s also a financial investment and legal agreement. There are serious processes that take place when you buy and sell a home, but we try to cut out the clutter and only have you deal with what’s most essential. One of these finishing touches on selling a home is closing. After you’ve stayed up to 6 months and your new home is ready and your old home is closing, you’ll need to be present to sign documents. But don’t worry! We’ll make that easy too and even make sure you don’t have to move out that same day. Offerpad provides home sellers the option of an extended stay allowing them to remain in the home up to 3 days after closing. Sign at closing and, for 3 days, bask in the certainty that your home is sold and closed. Conveniently move out of the old and in to the new after that. No worries!
