In today’s hyper-competitive, record-low inventory market, sellers are experiencing the luxury of having multiple buyers bid on their home.
But how can you make sure your client is the winning buyer?
1. Remove contingencies and help your client move fast
When there are several buyers to choose from, a seller will go with the sure thing. With the Knock Home Swap™, Knock will get your client fully-underwritten for a new mortgage based on their current equity before selling. They also get up to $200,000 in an interest-free bridge loan covering mortgage payments on the old house until it sells. Plus, the loan can be used for the down payment on their new home and funds to get the old house in top-selling condition.
This means your client can immediately start putting down competitive, non-contingent offers ASAP and close on their dream home prior to listing their current house for sale. It’s super convenient for your client and lands you the buy-side and sell-side of the deal.
2. Make a living through showings and repairs a thing of the past
The mechanics of facilitating and scheduling showings of a seller-occupied home is challenging on any day. Add in a global pandemic, and you’ve got a situation that’s about 10x trickier.
This could cause a potential client to feel like they need to sit tight in their current home and not put it on the market. In the end, though, this means you have one less buyer to work with and they potentially lose out on their dream home.
3. When it’s time to sell, sell for top dollar
While today’s market is likely already giving your client’s house a boost in value, making sure it’s in tip-top shape when you go to sell will take it to the next level.
