Sure, it’s easy for us to say, “It’s time to sell your house,” but is it right for YOU?
This is an important decision and you must make an informed decision: Here are 5 signs it’s time to sell your home.
#1: Your home is worth more right now. Homeowners gained $2.2 trillion in equity in 2013. According to new data collected by the Federal Reserve, rising prices brought 2.5 million previously underwater homeowners back to positive equity. Home values have been steadily rising and prices are expected to continue rising. You have equity in your home and can leverage that equity into buying power!
#2 Overcrowded Home. Is space tight in your home? Is your family growing beyond the space you currently have? Maybe all of your children have left the nest and your place is way too large! Now is the time to make a change and find the right sized home for your situation.
#3: A new home improves your lifestyle. Are you spending hours in traffic for a commute, have a perfect neighborhood picked out, or want to be closer to friends or family? Making a decision to have a better lifestyle, surrounded by what you really want is important. Could changing your living situation positively impact your life?
#4: Your home value. Sometimes you have to strike while the iron’s hot! Your home may be worth more than you think! You should think about taking advantage of the market conditions, but that may mean getting a home evaluation to get an accurate idea of what your home could sell for (You can call us and we’ll do that for free!).
#5: You “Just know” it’s time. If you’ve been thinking about selling, coming up with the reasons it’s time to sell, or starting to figure out how it would all happen – you are probably ready to take real action. It’s a personal choice that only you can make, while basing it on what’s happening in your market and what opportunities are available.
