My husband is in the military and is constantly on the move.
I should have known better.
When we first got together he got a deployment, I moved and bought a house. I put down way too many roots. The house was paid for, departed, and I had a job that I loved. Then my husband after two years needed to move again. I realized that finding a new job and moving furniture was difficult, but not too bad. Selling the house proved to be horrible. Real estate agents are so unreliable. They never called me back and the ones that did wanted me to do a bunch of stuff. I was nviaginating moving to a different ocutnry. I didn’t speak the language and I needed to move all my stuff there. I needed to find a new job, place to live, and get my kids in school. I wasn’t going to put a new roof on a house I would neve see again. So I told the real estate agent to pound salt and did some googling. I found local home buyers that buy homes fast for cash. I liked the idea of a cash offer. I wanted money in hand that I could use to get a new place and things for my children. I also liked that I didn’t have hidden fees, construction projects, or a lot of coordinating. It took one day versus months to get that house off of my hands. I don’t think I will be buying a home again for a while, but if I did, I would only sell it fast for cash from now on.
