Obviously, losing your job is the worse of the two scenarios listed above, but both can present stressful factors. Timing the sale of your home after a job loss is critical to preserve your options. If you act sooner rather than later you can use the cash proceeds to keep your credit score and everyday budget afloat. The sooner you sale when transferring means that you will have cash and more time to find a good location and home in your new town. However, even if you have been unemployed for a long time and have exhausted your rainy day funds, we can help restore some options for your to move on before foreclosure or other negative effects of losing your source of income impact your life.
