Avoid the Hassle of Selling Your Home By Trading Up

Avoid the Hassle of Selling Your Home By Trading Up

June 5, 2019

One of the biggest obstacles that homeowners face when they’re ready to move is selling their current home. There’s all the cleaning and repairs that are required get it ready to list. Keeping it tidy and presentable for a showing puts a crimp in your lifestyle. And then you sit and wait for the offers. Did you know you can avoid the hassle of selling your home by trading up? Homes By Taber’s Trade Up Program eliminates all the work and the waiting.

It makes sense. After all, do you trade in your car toward a new one so you don’t have to deal with tire-kickers, bargain hunters, and the price of other vehicles in this market? No. You leave that to the company that’s in the business of selling vehicles.

Is buying and selling a home really different? Homes By Taber is a local homebuilder. We build communities of single-family homes throughout the OKC metro area. We know real estate. In fact, our team sells a home every 16 hours. Many of these homebuyers have their own home to sell. We make it faster and simpler by purchasing their home. There’s no contingency based on the sale of their home, because, with the Trade Up Program, it’s sold right away!

Homes By Taber is the only builder to offer a trade-in/trade-up program. We created the service because we had recognized that selling a home is an integral part of buying a new one. Imagine falling in love with a home, only to lose it to a buyer whose purchase wasn’t contingent on selling their home. So, we built a solution into our process. Buy the home you want from Homes By Taber, and we’ll buy yours. 

Why trade in your home?

Avoid the delay. Don’t lose the home of your dreams because you can’t sell your current one soon enough. Choose your new home with the confidence that you have the ability to purchase on your timeline, not your current home’s future buyer’s timeline. When you find the perfect home, why wait?

Don’t worry about repairs. The Homes By Taber team is an expert at every aspect of home building, so we can handle any repairs that are necessary. No need to do the repairs before it goes on the market and then again once the inspections come back. Taber provides one list and they’ll do the repairs. 

Forget the deep cleaning and de-cluttering. This chore is time-consuming. While you’ll need to pack up and move out, you can skip the in-depth process of getting your home ready to list. We know how to evaluate your home’s value, no matter how much living is happening there.

Showings won’t disrupt your life. You spend every day keeping your home in pristine condition, just in case the real estate agent has a buyer who wants to see your home. “Don’t touch that!” “Who left this here?” “Hey! I just cleaned in there!” Or you hurry home in a panic to get it done once you get the call. Either way, do you want to live this way while your house is on the market?

Keep it kid- and pet-friendly. Those showings come with the need to evacuate your home at the convenience of the prospective buyer. That can mean taking the kids and the dog out for a few hours when you have far better things to do.

Move in early. When you trade up your home to a Taber home, you can move in 3 days before the closing date. Since we’re both the buyer and the seller, we can accommodate your schedule so you and your family have an easier transition to your new home.

Our Trade Up Program is not for everyone, but it can be a savior to anyone who wants to simplify the process of selling one home and buy another.

We have an active network of Realtors who are skilled at selling homes and we highly recommend. If you decide not to trade in your home, we’ll connect you with one of them to get your current home listed and sold as quickly as possible.

Look at our gallery of new homes. You might find just the inspiration you need to get moving on moving! Then talk to Frankie Lewis for more information about our Proudly Overbuilt homes, communities, features, and building process.

Our Happy

We are currently in contract to buy a home with Taber Homes and couldn't be happier. My wife and I recently relocated to the OKC area. We began our search for a home within a couple of weeks of arriving. The very first place we stopped was at the Taber model home at St James Pointe. When we arrived; Matt Cassell, the community sales manager, was hard at work in his office, but immediately stoppe ...
