Selling your home

Should you even sell your home in the first place? Do you need to sell or do you just want to sell? Just wanting to sell isn't necessarily a bad thing. People usually want to sell because they want to get a bigger home, downsize to a smaller home, move to just first-floor living, want more yard, want less yard. There are all sorts of reasons people may want to move even though they do not have to move.

And before you can sell your home you need to figure out how much you will net from the sale of your home. That starts with what is my home worth.  Unless you don't need the money you will need to know how much you will have after you sell to help you with your next purchase. 

Selling your home and finding a new home can actually be fun. It does not have to be nerve wracking.

Is this a good time or a bad time to sell your home? Very few people spend their entire life in the same home. For years the average consumer spent five to seven years in their home before moving on to something better. That average has now stretched out to be closer to seven to nine years in the same residence. That doesn't mean people don't sell sooner or wait a lot longer before moving. 

If you’re in a situation where you really need to sell, as opposed to wanting to sell, by all means, put your house on t he market. And if you want to sell, and can afford to do so, you should go for it, as well. However, whether you have to sell or just want to we can help you make the best decisions. Starting with what will I get if I sell?  What can I afford to buy? Will my new payments be higher, lower or the same as my old payments?
