Sellers! Put down that packing tape- you can buy a new home before you move out!  

Ready to move from a home you own but don’t know where to start on your home’s purchase/sale juggling act? ⁣Jillian Hogan Homes is here to get you through both your selling and buying transaction- at the same time. How do we do it?? ⁣

Here’s not one, but two client success stories of two families that bought their new home and sold their old home at the same time. These two sets of clients have owned their respective homes for a few years, meticulously maintaining and updating their spaces with dazzling renovations and customizations. But, despite making these homes into their own slices of heaven, these two families were ready to move onto the next home as they continued to grow their families and move onto the new chapter of life. When they were ready, these clients approached Jillian Hogan Homes with the age-old “chicken before the egg” question of real estate: “Do I buy first or sell first?” And to that we say, “why not do both at the same time?” But Jillian! Wouldn’t that be SO stressful?? Not as much as you’d think!

Let’s break it down for you.

Before we get into this, everyone’s home owning experience is unique to their own situation. We advise all of our clients to also engage with a mortgage lender to determine the best course of action for your real estate transaction. We have referrals to great lenders, if needed. Then, armed with this knowledge, you and Jillian Hogan Homes can start the journey of buying/selling your homes, with potentially NO home sale contingency!

The strategy behind buying a home and selling at the same time is the ease of cash flow. If you play your cards right (as both of our seller/buyer clients did), you can list your home for sale immediately after going under contract on your purchase AND use those sale proceeds as cash for your home purchase. Woah! And not only that, but you can also possibly avoid paying two mortgages at the same time.

As we know, home buying can be a little easier than home sales. With home sales, there is a lot of upfront work before you go to list, then the nerve wracking waiting game for an offer once you go online. So, how can we receive an offer at the same time you put in your own offer??

Well, back to our seller success stories: With a bit of guidance of staging their own furniture, scheduling active dates and open houses around weekends away, and choosing a pricing strategy to meet their needs – these sellers crushed it! Both homes sold within the first weekend online, over list price, and within a timeline that exceeded their expectations. And no extra contingencies were needed.

The key is matching up the listing/purchase timelines as well as in-depth collaboration with our team, your lender, our photographers, our stagers, our cleaners, and other agents in the transactions. Real estate transactions take a village to pull off, so lucky for you that Jillian Hogan Homes has all the best connections to take you through your home owning journey.
