Yes, you still have options. It’s time to start formulating a creative approach to the sale of your home, as it’s unwise to trust the market to allow things to happen naturally. There are three approaches you can take, but only one of them will lead to guaranteed results.
Indianapolis has a lot of low income neighborhoods. Families who are struggling to feed their children don’t often have the funds to put into the maintenance of their home. This leads to the accumulation of damage that becomes wildly costly to repair. If you find yourself in this category and you can afford to make these repairs, you always have that option. Just know that the market will still be hostile after you’ve made the repairs, and there’s no guarantee that putting in the work will actually lead to a sale.
Your second option is to wait it out. If you’re okay where you’re at and your need to move isn’t dire, don’t start packing yet. Every once in a while, the market gets a little better for a second. If you can find a buyer that’s willing to act quickly, you may be able to move through the sale before the market hits another rough patch.
The last option, and the only one that guarantees results, is to sell your home to an as-is buyer that doesn’t care about the market. These kinds of buyers can be hard to find in the wild, but home investors satisfy all of the necessary criteria.
