  • Change of Status: This seems pretty obvious but when your home no longer suits your lifestyle, then it’s time to sell it.

No matter why you are selling it is always wise for buyers to look to make sure the new homes mortgage matches their budget.   Buying a bigger home is only wise when the payment is similar to the smaller one because of the large down payment you have from the sale of your house.  It is also wise when downsizing to consider a significant down payment from the sale of your previous home.

  • If you have the money to buy another home: There are times when you are bored or you want something new. If you can afford to buy a new home then selling your home isn’t a bad idea.

It is important that clients make investments that can help them in the future when they are putting their homes on the market.  Simple changes such as a fresh coat of paint or updated appliances often attract realtors.  If you can afford to remodel specific places like your bathroom and kitchen it will be a great advantage when selling your home. This is one place buyers pay attention to. You don’t need expensive countertops however updated faucets and fixtures go a long way. It is nice to keep your closets and shelves neat or tidy make your home look larger and attractive as well.  If you can do this then your house will sell.

In conclusion, there are no straightforward formulas to determine when and how to sell your home, but a real estate agent can help you decide.  People sell their homes for many reasons.  If you are looking to sell your home make sure you are doing it for reasons that satisfy you.
