It’s a big decision – selling a house and moving to a nursing home. This is a major life change for everyone in the family.
You may be wondering how to sell a house fast and simply. Perhaps you don’t want to make updates or clean out the house. A real estate agent might not be able to help you sell your home.
At Upward Home Solutions, we will buy your house for cash. We give you the certainty of a sale on the date of your choosing. You will know exactly how much money you will have after the sale. And you won’t have to pay any closing costs or real estate commissions.
Selling a house to move to a nursing home is a lot less stressful when you call Upward Home Solutions.
Reasons why you should consider selling a house when moving to a nursing home.
- Nursing home care is expensive.
- You have to sell the house to settle debts.
- The house needs a lot of repairs or is full of stuff.
- Family members live out of town.
- There is no one to inherit the house or pay for its maintenance.
- The housing market is strong, which means you may be able to get a better price now than in the uncertain future.
- If you keep the house, you will still have to pay property taxes and HOA fees.
While social security, retirement savings, long-term care insurance, Medicaid, and other resources can help, many individuals who require long-term care find that they require additional funds to help cover the high costs of long-term care.“Selling a Home to Pay for Senior Care” Family Assets
“I don’t know where to begin when selling a house for nursing home care.”
When a loved one moves into a nursing home and the family is considering selling the house, there are a lot of decisions to be made.
Once you have decided to sell, spend some time going through the contents of the house. Is there anything that your loved one will need while in senior care? Perhaps you want to save some pictures or knick-knacks. Now is the time to get these out of the house. Be sure to take all valuables out of the house.
Should I hire a real estate agent for selling the house when I move into a nursing home?
Real estate agents are wonderful for homeowners wanting to sell the traditional way, but they are not for everyone. Realtors will need you to make repairs and get the house ready for showings. They will want to bring potential buyers into the house. Once you have negotiated a price with buyers, there will be inspections, remediation requests, waiting on the loan to be approved, and more. If that sounds like a lot of work, it is!
There is another way.
You might be wondering – how do I sell my house fast without a realtor?
A lot of people don’t know that it is possible to sell my house online to cash buyers like Upward Home Solutions. Instead of helping you sell your home like a realtor, we BUY your house for cash. There are no showings to strangers, no inspections, no waiting on the bank.
When you sell your home to Upward Home Solutions, you will have peace of mind. You will know when the house will be sold, when the funds will be in your bank account, and exactly how much money you will get from the sale.
A Story With A Happy Ending
Amy is the first person you will talk to on the phone at Upward Home Solutions. She is a great listener and loves her job because it’s all about helping people. Amy can talk you through the process of selling a house when moving to a nursing home.
About a month ago, Amy got a call from John.
Here’s the story of how we helped Bonnie who wanted to sell her house while she was in a nursing home.
Joe cares about his neighborhood and checks in on his neighbors. Always looking out for others, Joe had noticed that Bonnie’s house was empty and, after asking around, learned that Bonnie had moved to a nursing home.
When he learned this, Joe talked to Bonnie at the nursing home. She told him that she didn’t know what to do with her house. Unfortunately, she wouldn’t be going back and it was full of a lot of stuff.
Bonnie had mobility issues and her health wasn’t great. She had no idea how she would sell her house from the nursing home.
Fortunately, Joe knew about Upward Home Solutions and the unique service we can provide to people like Bonnie. He put us in touch with her.
Amy and Bonnie had lots of phone conversations. Bonnie had many questions about how our service works. She was skeptical. Could it really be that easy to sell a house in Columbus, Ohio? Gwen had seen “we buy houses” signs and she knew that some of them were shady characters. Bonnie wanted to know if she could sell as-is and if we would be able to do what we promised. Eventually, Bonnie was satisfied that Upward Home Solutions was an honest, local buyer. She agreed to let Tim take a look.
When you ask for a no-obligation, cash offer on your home, Tim will be the one to meet with you. Because Bonnie was in a nursing home, she wasn’t able to meet Tim at the house. Instead, Joe the neighbor met Tim there and showed him around. Tim looked at the foundation and the mechanicals. The next day, he presented Bonnie with a written cash offer for her home.
Our Wonderful Title Company
We’ve been working with the folks at PM Title for many years. They have helped us work through many complicated house closings. Because Bonnie wasn’t able to go to the office to complete the sale of her house, PM Title went to the nursing home. Bonnie was able to sign all of the documents in the comfort of her room. We wanted to make things as easy as possible for Bonnie. She is such a sweet woman. Everyone at Upward Home Solutions has fallen in love with her.
The proceeds from the sale of the house were wired into Gwen’s bank account on the same day.
