Where To Live After You've Sold Your Home And Waiting to Find a Home

With so many moving parts when it comes to real estate transactions, timing isn’t always perfect. And if the dates don’t quite line up as you transition from your old house to your new one, you’ll need a place to stay in the meantime. The thought of "being homeless" holds some back, but it doesn't have to! Let our team of experts help with the entire process!

What Are Your Choices?

From big to small, long- to short-term, you have many options at your disposal when it comes to temporary housing.

Rent-Back Agreement

How about where you’re already living? Your home’s new owners might not be ready to move in yet. If that’s the case, you could suggest renting your old home from them for a couple of months.

A standard rental lease for an agreed-upon length should give you a little extra time to get everything packed and moved into your new home. This might be the easiest solution, but it’s not always on the table.

Short-Term Rentals

Checking real estate and rental websites might help you find a house with 3-to-6-month leases. Depending on how long you need, you could consider subletting or doing a month-to-month lease as well.

You may even consider AirB&B homes where you could probably rent one for a full month. These houses or condos are typically furnished, so you won’t have to worry about moving furniture for such a short period of time.

Extended Stay

Extended-stay hotels and long-term suites are often the target of business travelers and could serve your needs, too. Your company may offer corporate housing if you’re relocating for a job and might be willing to help with your temporary housing situation. They may even have a partnership with a nearby hotel offering reduced rates.

Apartments & Condos

Smaller spaces could help you keep your footprint to a minimum as you get ready to move. Renting apartments or condos can be affordable, easy to find and may come furnished for an extra fee, allowing you to keep your own furniture in a storage unit. Staying organized throughout this transitional period could make it easier to move into your new home down the road.

Vacant Houses

There may be vacant homes waiting to be sold or for new owners to move in. You could sign a temporary lease with the current owner to help them earn some money as the house sits empty.

Instead of moving your furniture in, rent furniture. Movers from the rental company typically do all the heavy lifting and might layout the furniture for you. Having some furniture in the house could also benefit the owners if they’re trying to sell the property, making it feel more livable to potential buyers, which could make it sell faster.

If you would like to sell, but don't know where you would go, let us help you! Let our team make the calls, arrange appointments and find you sustainable housing while you wait on your dream home.
