Can you predict the future? I was called to meet with a seller who wanted to sell their home. I spent a great deal of time walking through the home and asking questions. Then it was their turn to ask questions. The wife is ready to sell now. What is the home worth today? That was an easy question. I let them know what the home was worth, what they should ask and what it may sell for.
Then came the husband, he asked what the home would be worth in 2021 if they wait? He did want to hear anything else but a number. My answer of course was it depends. It depends on what the interest rates are. It depends if we stay on track for a strong economy or if the economy slips back depending on which direction politics takes.
He was not having any of it, he wanted my guess. So based on facts of the past, if we keep on a strong economy, the home will be worth more. If we see tax increases, stocks will slump, interest rates will rise, buyers will stop buying and the house could be worth a lot less.
SO the answer to our question is now could be the best time to sell asked the wife. My next question was why are they selling. The answer was she was having difficulty going up and down the stairs. She found it difficult to clean a big home now that all the kids have left and have homes of their own. That they no longer want to maintain a big lawn and certainly do not want to shovel snow come winter. "They answered their own question that now may be the best time to sell. They were thank full i took the time to answer questions and that yes, they appreciated my candor on the future.
My infamous message is do not hire just anyone to list you home. Do not just hire the biggest company or agent. Take time to hire the BEST agent. The way I do business is to offer some of the best possible personal and professional service. To stand by them through each step of the buying and selling process. Let me show you the right agent CAN make a difference.
