You see all the homes around you going on the market and selling quickly. That gets you thinking, should I sell my home? There are many things to consider if you are thinking about selling.
How much is my house worth? That is the first question that usually comes up. You want to find out if it is worth it to sell. So your first step is to call your agent and have them prepare you a current market analysis. Now that is not the only number you need. You want to find out how much you owe on the home, how much it will cost to sell and the costs of any work that may need to be done before you sell it.
Look around your house and see what repairs or updates need to be done in order to sell your home. See what the costs would be to do the repairs and updates so you can get the most money for your house. If you are not sure what repairs or updates you might consider, then contact your agent and they can come out and give their opinion on what would help get the most money for your house.
Now the next question, when you sell your home, what is your next plan or adventure in life?
If you are wanting to buy another home then you have a couple things to consider. Of course the goal is to sell your home and then immediately move into your next home. However, you may have not found that home you love yet. I always suggest having a back up plan. Now what I mean by that is that when your house sells quickly and you have not found the home of your dreams yet. You want to make sure you have a secondary plan on where you will be staying until you find your next home. The last thing you want to do is settle on a home because you have to pick something, this is why I recommend having a plan in place. Having a plan in place will give you the time you need to really find the home that you love.
As always, let me know if I can be of any help.
