Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your New jersey house offers. But what is the right choice for you, it might not be what your first thought.

Calculate the value of selling your house fast today vs. “waiting it out” for a dream price: We all want to sell our houses for as much as possible. But one thing many people forget to do is come up with the $ amount of how much it costs you to hold onto the house. The costs involved include the mortgage (which if you’re still within the first 10 years of the mortgage, the majority of your payment goes to interest. insurance, taxes, maintenance, etc. Lets say you want to sell your house for $200,000… and your mortgage payment is $1,800/mo, taxes $400/mo, $100/mo for insurance, and $100/mo for maintenance (lawn maintenance, repairs while you’re gone, etc.) Those expenses add up to $2,400/mo in “non equity building” expenses. If it takes you 7 months to sell that house through a real estate agent for that $200,000… it cost you $16,800 in DIRECT “holding costs” + you had to pay $12,000 in real estate agent fees (assuming 3% for the buyers agent and 3% for the sellers agent). Totaling $28,800 in LOST money. That doesn’t even account for the value of your time, your stress thinking about that property sitting on the market, the opportunity cost of what you could have been doing with that extra money during those 7 months. So the real cost to you was likely closer to $30,000. But, what if you were to sell your house next week and avoid all of that? Even if you sold for a discount below the retail price (lets say… $175,000)… you’re still ahead of the game by selling the house NOW at a discount to a home buyer like our company vs. 7 months later at full price and paying holding costs and real estate agent fees.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Here at Sold Today, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
