Parts of the “Best Offer”: Clean Break vs. Broom Clean
If you’re listing your house on the market, you will likely be getting offers from buyers with an implied or explicit agreement that you will give them possession of the property “broom clean”. Roughly speaking that means that you’ve removed all personal property, trash, and debris and you’ve vacuumed or swept the inside living spaces including the garage.
Selling as-is to an investor, you may be able to negotiate an agreement that allows for you to do the opposite, and make a “clean break” from the property, taking only what you want and leaving behind anything else for the buyer to sell, donate or dispose of. If you’re interested in a fresh start at your new home a clean break agreement gives you the best opportunity for that.
