How To Sell House Without Equity
Many New Orleans area home buyers will buy a house at or above retail value. For those that qualify, they often buy using a loan and very little money down.
A big problem occurs when it comes time to sell their house within a few years and they have little to no equity. Traditionally, the seller will pay for most of the cost of the transaction. These costs of selling can include:
- Realtor commissions (both the buyer’s and seller’s agents)
- Title insurance
- Escrow fees
- Prorated property taxes
- Often even fees for the buyer’s new loan.
In most cases, these costs will be in the range of 10% or more of the negotiated selling price. That means that for every $100,000 in the selling price, between $10,000 and $13,000 will be taken out of your proceeds at closing. That is a bitter pill to swallow for any home owner!
Even home sellers who put up a 5% or 10% down payment, may have little to no equity if there is an economic recession or no real estate market appreciation in the area.
