Dan and Dan Both have given you excellent advice. You absolutely need a seasoned professional agent who understands all the intricacies of accomplishing a simultaneous close. An agent, who is representing you both for your purchase, and for your sale, is the only person who's going to be able to effectively show your sellers the likelihood of you selling in a short time frame. He/She must show your sellers how competitive your home is with a comprehensive, comparative market analysis, and a stellar property marketing program that goes above and beyond the competition to get you Top Dollar in 30 days.
A likely short sale date for your current home is the only way to get your offer accepted, WITH the needed contingency of the sale of your house. A Realtor experienced in doing simultaneous closes will also help you move only ONCE, saving a great deal of nail biting, lost sleep, and moving and storage costs.
Iâ€™ve closed properties from Stamford to Milford, to Norfolk, but the core of my business is here in Fairfield County. Of course, I would be delighted to help you with a comparative market analysis and complementary consultation.
Just give a ring if you'd like to discuss your concerns.
