Selling my loft after my military partner got deployed


My partner is in the military and is consistently on the move. I should have known better! When my fantastic friend and I first got together she got a deployment, I moved and bought a house. I put down way too many roots. The house was paid for, departed, and I had a job that I loved. Then my partner after two years needed to move again. I realized that finding a new job and moving furniture was difficult, however not too bad. Selling the house proved to be horrible, real estate agents are so unreliable. They never called me back and the ones that did wanted me to do a bunch of stuff. I was moving to a strange place. I didn’t speak the language and I needed to move all my stuff there. I needed to find a new job, a place to live, and get my kids in school. I wasn’t going to put a new roof on a house I would neve see again. So I told the real estate agent to pound salt and did some googling. I found local loft purchasers that buy homes fast for money. I liked the idea of a money offer. I wanted money in hand that I could use to get a new site and things for my children. I also liked that I didn’t have hidden fees, construction projects, or a lot of coordinating. It took one afternoon versus months to get that house off of my hands. I don’t know if I will be buying a loft again for a while, however if I did, I would only sell it fast for money from now on.
