YES, it IS a great time for you to sell so you can buy that Bigger/Nicer home you want!

There are homeowners that would like to have a larger/nicer home but are patiently waiting for the market to improve. A frequently heard objection is that they can't Sell their Home for what it is Currently Worth.

Believe it or not, it's actually to your advantage to Buy up in a down market because while you might get less for the home you're selling, you're also getting the larger home for less. For instance, if you had to sell a $200,000 home for a 10% discount, you might feel that you left $20,000 on the table. However, buying a $300,000 for the same 10% discount would put you $10,000 ahead on the sale and purchase.

The other obvious matter is that when the mortgage rates increase while you're waiting for the market to improve, it dramatically increases your cost of housing with higher payments. The cost of housing is affected by price and mortgage rates. So though you might be "losing" money selling your current house at a lower price, you're actually saving money and getting a deal!

To accurately evaluate your current options, you need facts and assessment tools that will provide you the information to make an informed decision. Below is an example of one of the assessment tools that I use, that can give you Figures/Numbers to help you decide what's best for you.

Samantha:  Rowlett and the entire Lake Ray Hubbard area is such a great part of the DFW Metroplex.  Everyone I know who lives there just loves it.

And... I see that in your profile picture you are wearing a warm hat, and a nice warm scarf.  I am thinking that many folks might think it is a little too warm for that... but you and I both know that you are wearing it... because Lake Ray Hubbard... is such a COOL place to live... <dorky smile>

That is a huge selling point... that you get the bigger house for less as well. The market is not in a downward trend, at least not in a majority if Texas.. so its a great time to buy UP if thats what sellers/buyers are looking to do. Great example you provided.
