How to buy and sell your home at the same time in the East Bay: Option 3

10 Ideas for how to buy and sell at the same time in the East Bay Area Option 3

Custom Build

So here's another option if you're looking to buy and sell simultaneously and you're worried about the timing. If you're worried about whether or not you'll be able to find exactly what you want, why not custom build a home? You could custom build a new home on a piece of land. If you go out and purchase a piece of land you would of course check the local permitting. You have your budget, you have your builder, you have your plans put together, and you get everything you want in this new home!

And by the way, you get the extra time to set up your current home so that it's ready for selling to get you the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time.

  • If you already like an existing neighborhood, you could buy a home that is for sale, maybe one that hasn't been updated. You could knock it down and build a new home. Pro tip though, check to make sure that the local subdivision and the permitting will allow for it.
  • You could do a combination where you buy an existing home in a neighborhood that you love, knock it down to the foundation and build the rest of the home new, once again, allowing you to have everything that you are looking for in a new home all with enough time to get your current home ready to sell for the most amount of money.
  • The very last variation on this tip would be to buy an existing home and then to gut it. You could take everything out of the inside of the home, create a new floor plan with a new kitchen and new bathrooms. Everything in it could be new and exactly what you want, all while you're getting your existing home ready to sell.
