Have you ever regretted the decision of being a landlord? At first it might seem like a great way to make money and keep equity in your property, but after dealing with lazy tenants, late rent payments and other issues that tend to arise in the landlord industry, many people simply scream; ‘I Hate Being a Landlord’ – and look for the quickest out possible.
Owning a rental property can come with several hassles that are not frequently mentioned in a manual on ‘how to be a landlord’. From worrying about repairing damage or appliances that eventually break down in your rental property, to having to worry about legal fees of getting late rent payments and eviction proceedings, there are simply too many negative side-effects to being a landlord in today’s entitlement-enhanced society.
It is at this time that you might want to consider selling your property quickly while still maximizing profits. Here are a few ways to accomplish this if you’ve decided that you hate being a landlord and are looking for a way out.
Step 1: Look at the Housing Market in Your City & Neighborhoods
Several residential real estate agents can be your best friends in regards to getting free information about the housing market. Their job is to provide you with detailed information in order to sign you to a contract and then take a percentage of your home’s sale. However, you are under no legal obligation to sign any contract with a real estate agent.
This is why a great way to begin the process of selling your home is to contact any local real estate agent and set up a meeting or phone call to inquire about the housing market; and how much money they think your property can be sold for.
Step 2: Ask Neighbors Who Have Recently Moved in What Their Property Sold For
A second way to generate a quicker home sale is to ask your neighbors who have recently moved into the neighborhood how much they purchased their home. This will give you another idea of the market value in the neighborhood. You can also ask any current neighbors who are currently listing their home for sale how long the property has been on the market.
Step 3: Find a Reliable Company That Can Purchase Your Property Quickly – Without Hassles
If you simply don’t have the time to conduct hours of market research, meet with real estate agents and simply want out of your property, there are several residential property purchasing companies who will buy your home as is and provide you true market value – without the hassle of having to pay an agent commission or other fees.
