Taking an opportunity in a new state or even country is an extremely exciting possibility. Many people, like those in military positions often have to move to pursue better professional opportunities. But others face the choice of packing up their life and moving to accommodate a variety of other issues like a family member who needs assisted living or to take care of a child relation in an environment they’re comfortable with. Whatever the issue, finances are, across the board the hardest thing to balance when considering a big move of this nature.
The Tricky Part
Houses are expensive and thus tie up most of your liquid assets. It’s true they’re one of the more important investments you’ll ever make. A house can be a door to your future and a rock in your life, but when you have to choose between flesh and blood versus brick and mortar, it’s likely you’ll choose flesh and blood, especially when that flesh and blood is in the form of a new boss offering you an opportunity for more money or just a new more exciting place to live.
While a traditional sell could help rescue you from losing the investment you’ve made on the house, you already have a new investment to make. Invest in the future that’s starting now and liquidate those assets by simply selling your house for cash. It’s easier than attempting to navigate repairs, realtors fees, and all the time it’ll take to show the house and talk someone into signing a contract and securing a mortgage when you have your new life sitting on just the other side of the door.
