What Are Your Options to Move During the Holidays? – Fridays with Fred


    What Are Your Options to Move During the Holidays?

    Are you planning on selling your home during the holidays but you don’t want to be faced with the hassle of moving?

    Many people have been faced with this problem in the past but the good news is that you can sell your home and even close escrow during the holidays without actually having to move right away.

    Short Term Rent Back

    If your home sale is negotiated properly by a company like Fred Sed Realty, you can negotiate a short-term rent back with the buyer so that you can continue living in your home for another 2 weeks, or the maximum of 8 weeks, while you enjoy the holidays.

    The solution of a short-term rent back eliminates stress for anyone regardless if they are selling during November, December or other times of the year.

    Must Be Negotiated Up Front

    Although a short-term rent back is an excellent solution that will give you the ability to enjoy the holidays without having the stress of moving the key to success is to remember that it must be negotiated up front when the buyer first submits their offer, not later.

    Many sellers make the mistake of trying to negotiate a short-term rent back after the buyer has submitted their offer and depending on the time of the year, or the buyer’s situation, it’s likely that the rent back will not be accepted by the buyer.

    Good Solution for Buyers

    In today’s competitive Southern California Real Estate market, a short-term rent back is a good solution for some buyers to offer up front because it will help their offer to stand out from others and show a seller that they have more time to live in the home instead of having to move right away once it sells.
