Hi Steven,

Not sure if you are still looking for assistance with this question, but there are essentially 4 options available to you, depending on your ability to do each of these:
1. Buy and sell at exactly the same time.
2. Buy first, move into your home, sell after you buy.
3. Sell first, move into temporary housing, buy after you sell.
4. Move into temp housing, buy and sell at the same time.
Each of these has it's pros and cons. We would be happy to go through the process with you if you are still in need of any help!

I'm not sure which Certifications will be required (see link below), but you'll want to start a relationship with investors/flipers. I work with someone who could potential utilize this service in some of the homes he comes across. Once you get your business up and running, advertise to all the realtors in town. You can drop off flyers at their offices etc. We typically only need basic household clean up, but once you develop those relationship your business will grow. We always refer good service to our clients Good luck! ... more

Thanks for responding.
No, all different agencies. Realtors get complacent it seems.
Whether a buyer needs a VA loan or is a cash buyer, they should get the same attention.
I long for professionalism in the industry. ... more

Sue Stencel answered:
My Grandfather quit claimed his property to us years ago, so we learned the hard way that it wasn't the smartest move. If we ever sell the property that he quit claimed to us, we will owe taxes on the difference between what he paid for it in 1960 and the Sale price. I would definitely agree with everyone else on this point, consult an Accountant and/or Estate attorney before you do anything. ... more

Don Tepper answered:
A verbal agreement is unenforceable in real estate.

Essentially, without a written agreement, there's no lease. I'm not a lawyer, so this isn't legal advice. But without a lease, at best what the tenant has is a month-to-month arrangement with you.

And I use the word "tenant" with some reservation.

Check with a lawyer, but my first reaction is that you've got two choices:

(1) Since the person wants to stay, if you're willing to accept fair market payments from him, send him a lease that requires monthly payments (not barter services). If he signs it, great. You now have a lease, receiving the payments you want.

(2) If you simply want him out, sent him a notice asking him to move within 30 days. And this is why I'm not a lawyer: I wouldn't even refer to him as a "tenant." That might establish him as a tenant, in which case you might have to go through a formal eviction process. If he's not a tenant, then there's no tenant to evict--simply someone who you've allowed to stay in the house without any sort of written agreement.

Check with a lawyer for more information.

Hope that helps.
