Having no or little equity in your house is a prevalent concern in the Chattanooga. While this might not affect you too much while you’re living in your house, it may become a huge complication when selling. If you have no or little equity, selling your Chattanooga house for cash is not possible because you owe more than your house is worth.

If for any reason you cannot afford your mortgage, we can help you in just 1-2 weeks by using a process called a lease option.
A lease option is excellent when you have low equity and can no longer afford to pay your home mortgage. The main reasons for not having the capacity to pay your mortgage many. Job loss, financial hardship, health problems, relocation or other factors can cause you to come up short on your mortgage payments. If you have low equity, selling your house through an estate agent or even through a quick cash sale is just not logical and not realistic.
Now, an example of selling a house with negative equity in Chattanooga:
Your Chattanooga home is worth $100,000 in the current market. You have a mortgage with $90,000 left on it. If you go to a real estate agent, they will probably recommend you to reduce the price to get a quick sale. If your home goes for $95,000, once the costs, fees, and remaining mortgage have been paid, you are not making any profit out of the sale. In fact, you will lose money. If you are already struggling financially, you surely can not manage to do this!
