I own my home… im 20 years old. I bought it fast and without thinking with money i inherited. Now have been living in it for 1 1/2 years. The problem is, I want to go to school now and dont have the money for school. What can I do to sell this home fast. Are their companies out there that will buy my house and then try to sell it for a profit. It is a nice 3 bedroom house. I bought it for 180,000… It is on 3 acres… so the “we buy ugly houses” thing will not work.

Please dont critisize how i should have made better planning decision. I already know this. I am very down on my discision. Also please do not tell me to google these kinds of companies… i have tried this already and came up with nothing. so Maybe you may know of a company who does what i am looking for. 10 pts to the best answer! thanks!

    Any home will sell if it is priced right. Hire the best realtor in your area to market your house. Offer perks to realtors for bringing a buyer. Offer perks to the buyer – closing costs, etc.

    This is a great time to sell. School is almost out and people want to settle in before it starts again in the fall.

    Bad time to be selling a house, Prices are down everywhere. Have you considered student loans that don’t have to be paid back till you finish school. Maybe using house as collateral?

    Why not go to a realtor and ask them to lease your home (so you won’t lose it). These days the home values have dropped and you’ll lose a lot of money and become in the hole if you sell it now, so that’s why I say lease it. If you have a realtor do that you can let them do the upkeep (yeah, realtors can do that) and collect the rent for you. And in the meantime get loans and grants for schooling.

    KT –
    Think this through. How many people your age have a nice house worth $ 180K? You go to school to get a job to pay for a nice home – and you already have one! You can go to school part time and work part time, get loans, whatever; but you may not be in a situation again for a very long time where you can buy a really nice house! Enjoy what you have – most people are much older than you before they can get what you already have at age 20. You bought it fast – don’t compound that by trying to sell it fast, too.

    Do you plan to attend school near your home. If so why not rent out two bedrooms to other students while you live in the other. Choose your renters wisely. then take out student loans to pay for school. Pay it back with rent money.
