When it is Time to Sell
Sometimes the need for a move is obvious. For example, if your work requires you to transfer to a new city, you know it is time to relocate to a new home. The impact of other life changes, such as having twins, your last child leaving home, or a big salary increase, may not be so obvious.
When you notice that your house or condominium is no longer serving your needs, it may be time to call in a professional real estate agent for some expert advice. Your agent may suggest that you remodel your present home or find one that is more suitable to your current lifestyle.
If you decide that a move is necessary, what should you consider before listing your present home for sale and beginning the search for a new one? You will want to know how much you can expect to get for your present home and what you can afford to spend on a new one. You will also need information about financing and the many loan programs that are now available. A professional real estate agent can be an invaluable asset to you as you make these important decisions.
