Why do people decide to do double closings?

Selling a house is a difficult process to go through. Some people are under pressure to sell quickly due to other factors. Other people are faced with prices that owners will not budge on. There are many aspects to consider when selling a house. You could be doing it on your own or using a real estate agent to take over the process for you. As with most things, complications can arise when selling a house. To make matters even more complicated, selling a home and looking to buy at the same time can cause more stress. If you are considering this process, seek our legal advice to help make it a smooth process for you and your family.

What is a double closing?

When individuals decide to sell a house and buy one on the same day, this is known as a double closing. Due to the coordinance of both processes, this can be a very stressful time for people. The amount of stress involved with finding a home and selling a home is hard enough without the combined force of both processes. If you are about to go through the double closing process, it is best to have an attorney at your use to ensure a successful process.

How can this process benefit me?

As someone involved in a double closing, we understand why you can choose a difficult option such as this. Sometimes people find it important to sell the old house before buying a new one. This can be for financial reasons. If you are one of those people who needs the money from a selling to buy a new home, it can benefit you to undergo a double closing.

Although most people may decide to sell a house and acquire a new home later, this may not fit for everyone. Some people do not want to spend the extra cost of finding temporary housing. Some people do not want to have to ask relatives or friends if they can stay at their home until they buy a new house. This can require a lot of effort due to moving your possessions multiple times within a short period of time. We understand these reasons. Our firm can guide you through a double closing to help avoid any unwanted circumstances that you may face. By avoiding these circumstances, you may not have to find a temporary place to live if the double closing is successful.
