It’s important for sellers to have great credit, for a couple of reasons. One, they’re going to become buyers or renters after they sell, and their credit is going to be evaluated. If you need to sell your property quicker, talk to a real estate agent about quick fixes to the property. If you have time and want to do some larger renovations to sell your property for more money, we suggest you open a credit card with low interest rates and fees. Once you sell your property at the higher rate, you can use some of the revenue to pay off your credit card debt.
