FasterHouse Helps Home Owners Sell Fast and Avoid Foreclosure!
Foreclosures are an unfortunate reality many home owners. Life happens. Unforeseen circumstances happen. When the unexpected happens, FasterHouse can help. We can help you to navigate a seemingly impossible situation.
Why do foreclosures happen?
Life events are the most common cause of foreclosure.
Medical issues can be especially destructive financially because they can hit you in two ways.
If a serious medical condition is affecting you or a loved one, you may need to take time off of work, or stop working altogether.
Additionally, the cost of medical bills – even if you have insurance – can be astronomical.
So not only can medical problems keep you from being able to make the income you would normally expect to make, it can also drain your existing financial reserves as well. This can make it extremely difficult to pay for your monthly mortgage payments.
Divorce is another type of life event that can be destructive financially in multiple ways.
When a divorce occurs, finances are generally split between the parties, and that may leave one party unable to pay for the home even if they have been awarded it by the courts.
Additionally, the cost of divorce is quite high, so if you are experiencing a divorce you may find yourself less capable of paying your home payments due to the legal fees.
Losing a job speaks for itself in relation to a foreclosure.
The job market has been challenging for certain industries ever since the late 2000s, the coronavirus pandemic, and historical rates of inflation more recently.
While some people are able to find a job rather quickly after losing theirs, others are left without a job for several months at a time, especially in industries who have seen their demand decrease due to technology or shifting consumer preferences.
These people may find themselves needing to take a job that pays less simply to secure an income to cover necessities, and this may compromise their ability to afford their home.
Death in your family may present some of the same challenges as medical issues – time away from work, lost income, and the addition of unforeseen expenses.
There is an alternative to foreclosure.
Foreclosures happen every day to people from all walks of life, but it is important to recognize that alternatives exist.
One alternative is an as-is sale. With an as-is sale, you are able to sell your home for cash.
You can do so without making additional investments in the home, such as paying for repairs, paying for supplies to stage the home, or paying costly real estate agent fees.
How fast can I sell my home as-is for cash to avoid foreclosure?
The process of an as-is sale moves quickly compared to a typical foreclosure.
Rather than waiting months for the bank to work through a foreclosure process, you can sell your home as-is to a cash home buyer in a fraction of the time.
A cash buyer will make an offer within just a few days of visiting the home. Compare this to a foreclosure that takes an average of 12-14 months. Some foreclosures can take up to 3 years! The stress endured in this process is nothing short of the time spent.
FasterHouse can buy your home as-is for cash and ultimately shorten your home selling timeframe and remove a great deal of stress in the process.
