If you are moving for a job or any other reason, you probably need to sell your house fast. Even if you are selling up and moving abroad to enjoy your retirement, the family home needs to sell quickly. The following tips can help you sell your old house sooner.
In a guaranteed home buyout program, the property owner lists the home for sale with a real estate agent or as a FSBO (For Sale by Owner) listing—but for a shorter-than-normal listing. The homeowner also negotiates a contract with the company providing the buyout option as a backup plan, should the property not sell during the listing period. The company agrees to purchase the property for the pre-negotiated rate, which is usually well below market value.
Employers, through relocation companies, frequently offer a guaranteed home buyout option to relocating employees. In such cases, the employer typically subsidizes the appraised value less the buyout amount—if the buyout is needed.
Real estate agents also offer the service to people who can only afford to let their house sit on the market for a limited time.
Besides a lower purchase price, homeowners can also get stuck with hidden charges and confusing contract terms.

Approximately 70% of U.S. companies offer some relocation incentives for existing employees or new hires.
The most common assistance consists of covering most or all of the employee’s moving expenses. The company pays for the costs of a professional moving company, as well as the packing supplies. Travel expenses to and from the new location are also reimbursed. Vehicle relocation and storage costs are frequently included, as well.
For the next level of assistance, the employer will provide some down-payment assistance—especially when the employee is relocating to a high-cost housing market.
Highly sought-after recruits and senior employees are frequently offered a relocation package that includes all of the above—plus a buyout of their current home. The employer will want you to make every effort to sell your house through a realtor or a FSBO listing (typically, the listing price for this period must be negotiated with the employer). You must also agree on a buyout price—if you can’t sell the home during the time it is listed on the open market. The buyout price is usually the average of the appraised values determined by two or more reputable appraisers.
Employers just don’t tell new recruits or employees who need to relocate “Take all the time necessary to sell your home before you move. We will hold the job open for you.” And something like a family emergency can’t always wait until you sell your house. So when you are in a hurry to move, it is tempting to put your house on the market and move. But is that the best strategy? You will have twice the housing costs until your old house sells. And what about all the time and hassle spent dealing with real estate agents and buyers?
But selling your house quickly and then moving out of state sounds like an impossible goal. After all, a traditional real estate sale or a FSBO sale can take months to complete.

Selling a house while living abroad is no small endeavor.
The first problem is the time zone difference. When business is being conducted here in the U.S., it is probably in the middle of the night at your location. This can mean sleepless nights for you, as you talk with your real estate agent and other necessary parties.
