Sell My Home in Austin to Millennials?
Should I sell my home in Austin to Millennials because there’s a market for it right now? Well-meaning friends, relatives and real estate agents have told me that the floor plan of my home will appeal to millennials because it offers a lot of open space in the kitchen, dining and living areas.
We built this house in in the early 1980s and it seems that our style has become popular once again. It is only 1500 square feet, which is not considered large when compared to the monstrous homes being built in many subdivisions these days. Apparently, a lot of Millennials like smaller, more economical homes, too.
I do not like the idea of a lot of people walking around and looking through my house, especially when I am not at home. And I surely do not like the idea of waiting for weeks and weeks for young buyers to qualify for a mortgage so they can close on a sale transaction with me. Not knowing if my home is sold means I cannot make my own plans to move and distribute my excess belongings.
Home Sales and Exposure to Covid-19
And most of all, I do not like the idea of accommodating people who may be carriers of Covid-19, especially young married couples with children. Even if I am not at home when they come to tour it, I will worry about being exposed to the virus and frightening risks involved.
Even though my home might be very appealing to Millennials in Austin and I might be able to sell it quickly through a real estate agent, I’m not sure that’s how I want to go about finding a buyer. There are risks to me that might not make sense to other people.
Listing and showing my home involves the risk of exposure to Covid-19 and the risk of a pending sale falling apart if the buyers do not qualify for the mortgage loan of their choosing. I am just not interested in taking those risks right now.
Investors Are Buying Homes During the Pandemic
I can pick up the phone and call We Pay Fast at 405-521-1807 or email [email protected] and speak to professional home buyers who buy and sell homes as their primary business. Those are the people I want to speak to when I get ready to sell my home in Austin in the next few months.
There will not be parades of people going through my home and there will be a clear understanding of the cash sale price, which I will receive in full on the closing date, less than two weeks from signing the sales agreement. We Pay Fast pays all the closing costs and does not charge me a real estate commission. I like that.
