3 Mistakes To Avoid When You Sell A Settlement
Selling a structured settlement is more than likely a once in a lifetime event; being awarded such a settlement is not an everyday occurrence and it is improbable that an individual will know the steps to take and the mistakes to avoid when going through the process. Here are three major mistakes you should be aware of and avoid when selling a structured settlement.
It is easy when you get caught up in the process and the possibility of receiving a large sum of money to not think things through properly. However, as you are going through this process, it is important to stop yourself and consider if this is the best thing for you. While most people will inevitably say it is, you want to be sure you are not in the minority that will regret their decision later. This not only applies to selling the structured settlement but also what you do with the money you receive from the sale. Do not rush off and spend every dime you receive. Think things through and avoid the pain of regret later.
#2:Be Happy with the Sale
You should also take time during the negotiation process to be sure you are happy with the offer you have been given. Remember – this is a negotiation. If you do not like the offer, you can always say no and go somewhere else. You may very well find that once you say no, the offer gets a little better. Do not get bullied into taking less than you think is fair. The main thing is that you are happy when you walk away from this process.
#3:Familiarize Yourself with the Process
Before selling your structured settlement, you should familiarize yourself with the process a little. You do not have to know every detail of every company, but a broad overview of how things work will give you confidence to negotiate.
