I Can’t Sell My House In Minnesota MN… Help!

If you’ve found yourself saying, “I can’t sell my house in Minnesota MN,” this article is for you. Maybe you’ve been trying to sell your Minnesota house for a while now and haven’t received any offers, don’t panic! You still have a few options at your disposal to help you sell your house for a fair price.

You’ve probably already tried the first one at least once: Lowering the asking price.

Everybody wants to sell their house for more than they paid for it but if housing prices in your area are low, the economy’s not doing well, or your home has some sort of structural or locational problem, you may have to reduce your asking price.

What are my options if I can’t sell my house in Minnesota?

Here are five other things you can try when you can’t sell your house in Minnesota:

1) Take It Off the Market

When is the best time to put your house on the market? Like with most things, there is not a definitive answer. The truth of the matter, though, is that it depends on a number of different factors – including what type of home you have and where you live.

Take a look at our guide for homeowners hoping to sell their homes in 2018. We will talk about timing from now through spring as well as provide some tips on selling during the holidays or other tough times.

2) Take Out a Second Mortgage

If you have built a lot of equity in your home, you may want to take out a home equity loan — if you can afford to pay the higher monthly payment, that is. If not, you may be able to renegotiate a loan modification plan with your lender or convert your adjustable rate mortgage into a fixed-rate mortgage that has a lower interest rate. The loan can be used to fund other things, including real estate investments.

3) Rent Out Your Home

If you can’t sell your home and don’t want to hold two mortgages (your old home and your new home) one option may be to rent out your home at or near the price of your monthly mortgage payment. That allows you to apply the rent to your mortgage without having to incur any additional expense – other than upkeep, maintenance and repairs.

4) Consider a Short Sale

“I can’t sell my house in Minnesota because I owe too much!” This can happen if you purchased your home within the past few years and currently owe more than the home is worth (called being upside down).

In some instances, you can negotiate with your lender to accept less than what you owe on your mortgage. If it looks like the other option is foreclosure, your lender probably will accept a short sale.

To do this, you’ll need to have a buyer on board who can close quickly. Fortunately, we can! Give us a call today at (320) 412-1200 for a no-hassle offer on your house.

Keep in mind, however, that short sales can affect your credit. Redeeming a pre-foreclosure on your credit history might disqualify you from getting another mortgage, at least for a little while.

5) Offer a “Lease to Own” Option

A lease to own option is when you rent your house to somebody with the option to purchase your home at or before the lease expires. This is a good option if you can’t find qualified buyers because you can collect rent plus a lease option fee from a tenant while giving them time to save up for a down payment and establish their credit so they can get a mortgage to buy your home down the line.

You also can add a lease premium to their monthly rent that can either be applied to the down payment later or – if they don’t end up exercising their option to buy your home – you can keep it as income.
