What if I sell my home, but I am not able to find one to buy?

Right now, this is one of the most common questions in real estate. The razor-thin supply of homes for sale in Western North Carolina cuts both ways. While it may be harder to find a home, sellers sit in the catbird seat negotiating with buyers. Besides price, there are many points of negotiation in a North Carolina Offer to Purchase. Closing dates are always negotiable, and with buyers bending over backward to win bidding wars, there’s more appetite for this type of creative deal structuring than ever before. There are also home loan and financing options that help a seller take advantage of the increased equity in their home before closing on their future home. Check out one of our most popular blog articles, “Which is Better to do First: Sell Your Current Home or Buy a New One?”.

Clayton Ryan did an amazing job of helping us acquire and purchase the land we wanted to buy. He informed us of all the things we have to do before buying the land. Any questions we had, we would reach out to him and he would answer our questions or direct us to who would answer our questions. It was our first time getting involved in buying a property, so we were grateful that we got a real estate agent that knew what he was doing, helped us with everything, and was an overall amicable and understanding person.

Clayton was always able to answer questions, willing to take the time to explain steps in the process of buying a house to a first time buyer. He quickly arranged all the inspections and I was never left waiting for him to make any arrangement. When I needed access to the house after hours or on the weekend, he was always cheerfully available. He genuinely tried to match me to a house that met my desires, and within my means rather than showing me houses at a higher price than I could afford. I would recommend him to a friend.

Furthermore, his personal touch in all the proceedings made my home purchase much easier. He is a great person and now, a new friend!

Clayton listened carefully to my concerns. We discussed any issues and he was helpful, thoughtful, and even sometimes consulted with his broker. He also is the only real estate agent I've ever had who actually "worked" for me. He stands in a class of his own and I am a real estate investor so have done a lot of dabbling in the pond. I would highly recommend him. He's good and he cares. judy flaherty ps I felt he cared about me and my concerns not just the bottom line agent fee.

We were so fortunate to have found Clayton when we decided to put our home up for sale. As our Realtor, he helped us sale our first home and also find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He worked with us many months and was so helpful during both processes. In short, he was always on our side working to make selling our home and house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Clayton was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. He was so kind to our family and put our concerns first. He made the whole process so easy, we couldn’t have been more pleased! We would recommend him to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!

Outstanding work and a huge thanks to Clayton and his team at Beverly Hanks. Clayton is a great real estate agent and one of the most approachable and kind professionals I have ever met. Clayton's patience and caring attitude certainly helped ease my mind as a first time home buyer - he did an amazing job of leading me through the process!
