“I got a job transfer and must sell my house”
We buy houses in Houston and we know that sometimes things can change quickly in a job. Sometimes a job transfer can be due to a new opportunity that has come up and you are able to get a job relocation package. Other times it is because of a location closing down and employees needing to transfer. Either way, one thing is for certain, if you own a house, that can cause issues.
Job transfer and I can’t sell my house can you get deed in lieu?
A way to avoid foreclosure is by completing a deed in lieu of foreclosure. A deed in lieu of foreclosure is a transaction in which the homeowner voluntarily transfers title to the property to the bank in exchange for a release from the mortgage obligation. Generally, the bank will only approve a deed in lieu of foreclosure if there aren’t any other liens on the property.
What is the process to sell a house in case of a job transfer?
The traditional process of selling a house when you transfer jobs is to hire a real estate agent. However, the downside here is that you won’t be around to ensure that the agent is actually taking care of things. As many home sellers can attest, there are a lot of bad agents out there. Make sure to vet the agent before signing a 6-month agreement with them, as you don’t want to be stuck with a house that is nowhere near you.
