Need To Sell My House In Fort Lauderdale Because I’m Relocating

Planning your relocation can sometimes be burdensome and a bit complicated due to the different moving parts. We often receive Fort Lauderdale home sellers reaching out to us via phone call or submitting their house info on this website every week saying “I’m relocating and need to sell my house in Fort Lauderdale“.  The great thing is that we’re able to help a majority of those homeowners sell their house quickly because we’re actively buying houses in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the surrounding areas.

As stated previously, the requirements of planning a relocation are enormous especially with the amount of details to keep together, plus the added stress of your reason to move in the first place. Some of these are, a new job, divorce, or a sick relative, however,  the true need to relocate most times has some serious implications.

How can you benefit from difficult situation?

Don’t Agonize – Organize.

No homeowner wants to be in a situation where they’ll end up paying to maintain a vacant house for an extended amount of time. That can become really expensive which it doesn’t have to.

Although the market is relatively stable right now in Fort Lauderdale, things can change in an instance. We’ve heard some serious horror stories over the past couple of years. Unless you’re filthy rich, you probably can’t afford to wait it out.

So how do you make the right choices when you’re relocating and need to sell your Fort Lauderdale Florida house fast?

Relocating And Need To Sell My House Fast In Fort Lauderdale… Your Options And Steps


  1. Find out what your house is worth: You can contact a reputable real estate agent or connect with us and we can give you a no cost no obligation valuation on your property.  After you’ve received the estimated amount you can sell your house for, this should give you an idea of how long you are willing to wait before actually selling.
  2. Decide how fast you need to sell your house after you relocate: This is normally the deciding factor. There are times an homeowner may move out of state for whatever reason, but their house sits on the market for over a year before selling it at a reduced price. You’ll have to decide how fast you need to sell your house and how long you’re willing wait while keeping up with 2 mortgage payments, insurance payments, etc.
  3. Get in touch with a reputable real estate agent BEFORE you start packing boxes: You may want to start this process early so you don’t end up losing any time. The longer you wait is the longer it takes to sell your house which in turn costs you money.  If you don’t want to use a real estate agent,  we are a reputable local house buyer and we’d love to make you a fast-fair all cash offer. Just fill out the form through this link to get started >>
  4. Calculate the value of selling your house fast vs. “waiting it out” for a dream price: We all want to sell our houses for as much as possible, but one thing most people forget to do is include the amount it costs to hold onto this house.  This includes the mortgage (which if you’re still within the first 10 years, the majority of your payment is going to interest and none hardly going to principal at all), insurance, taxes, maintenance, etc. Let’s say you want to sell your house for $200,000… and your mortgage payment is $1,200/mo, taxes $200/mo, $100/mo for insurance, and $100/mo for maintenance (lawn maintenance, repairs while you’re gone, etc.).Those expenses add up to $1,600/mo in “non equity building” expenses. If it takes you 7 months to sell that house through a real estate agent for that $200,000… it cost you $11,200 in DIRECT “holding costs” + you had to pay $12,000 in real estate agent fees (assuming 3% for the buyers agent and 3% for the sellers agent).Totaling $23,200 in LOST money.  That doesn’t even account for the value of your time, your stress in thinking about that property sitting on the market, the opportunity cost of what you could have been doing with that extra money during those 7 months, etc. So the real cost to you was likely closer to $30,000. What if you were to sell your house next week and avoid all of that? Even if you sold for a discount below the retail price (let’s say… $175,000)… you’re still ahead of the game by selling the house NOW at a discount to a home buyer like our company vs. 7 months later at full price (and paying holding costs and real estate agent fees). Make sense?
  5. Take action!: Whatever you decide, don’t wait too long and take action.  If you want to go the real estate agent route, great! Find a reputable local Fort Lauderdale Florida agent.  If you’d rather not have to wait and pay real estate agent commissions and unnecessary fees, then a viable option may be to sell your house to us.

Providing time is on your side and you’ve got a really great property, chances are you might want to list it on the MLS with the hopes of attracting a high price. Even then there’s still a small chance someone might just fall in love with it and be willing to overpay.

In reality, most properties are pretty average. They are similar to the other houses in the neighborhood with little if any differentiating factor. So unless your property is in pristine condition, it will be difficult to sell on the MLS at the highest price point.

Just to see what happens and keep your options open, you can also list your property for rent and sale at the same time. As simple as this may sound, if you are not careful, you can totally lose control of the process.

In some situations, we may partner with property owners to help secure lease option agreements where highly qualified purchasers rent the property for an agreed time before buying.

In other cases, we may help renegotiate a loan, help make monthly payments or conduct a short sale with a bank.

We love helping people solve complicated problems.

Creative solutions can bridge the gap to get you where you need to be.
