How do I know when it's time to Sell my home?

By
Real Estate Agent with Referral Only Realty

?I'm thinking of selling my house but I'm not sure if it's the right time. How much will it sell for? Can I afford a move? Where do I start? How do I find a Realtor? Don't let these questions stop you from selling your home. If you're not quite ready to jump into the market and want more information, you're on the right track. Here are a few tips to get you started:

1.)   Think about your motivations for moving -work, family, size and condition of your current home,  
       change in relationship status, change in financial situation, etc.

2.)   Write down your goals for your real estate transaction - price, time-frame, where will I move, etc.

3.)   Contact me so I can help you evaluate the current market conditions in your area as well as the area
           in which you would like purchase a new home. We can discuss your motivations, needs and 
           review the market together. It may be the right time to sell, or it may be better to wait. With 
           the appropriate information, you'll be able to make an informed decision. If it's the right time,
           I will also help you find the perfect agent to sell your home.

I always say that using a professional in the real estate field is highly recommended. When you're looking for a house to purchase, it's easy to find a house with all the wonderful Internet information available in this day and age, but there are more factors involved in a real estate transaction which are best handled by an experienced professional. Correct contract writing, due diligence, negotiation, financial considerations, title insurance, settlement statements and other factors all come together to make a successful transaction.

As a professional referral agent, I provide a no-cost, no-pressure, no-obligation option to analyze your situation and help match you with an agent who will best suit your personality and who specializes in the areas you need. I have the experience and referral network to assist you in finding the best agent for you! I have a nationwide database and will help you not only find the best agent, but other services such as mortgage brokers, movers, contractors, and other professionals as well.

Chrissy, always a great idea to ask yourself "why" before taking the leap!

Similar to my side of the biz, I always ask where they will be comfortable with a monthly payment, because it doesnt matter What I can do, if they cant sleep at night!

Robert - I agree. It just doesn't feel right to get clients into a situation where they're over extending themselves.
