If you’ve been thinking about listing your home, make sure you’re really prepared. Here are a few things to consider before putting your home on the market.

A Quick Sale is Good … If You Have a Plan

In a seller’s market,some houses sell within days or even hours of being listed, which is great for sellers who know their next move. But what if you don’t?

Think about it: If you got an offer on your home the same day you listed it, would you be ready to accept it and find a new place to live?

Consider the Options

If you aren’t ready to buy again, you could always rent a place before purchasing your next home. But that means potentially moving everything you own twice.

Maybe you could make arrangements with the new owner to temporarily lease the property. Or you may be able to counter the buyer’s offer with a longer closing period to allow yourself time to find a new place. But both of these options can mean more paperwork and a tight timeline.

Work With an Expert

If you’re thinking about selling your home, give me a call to discuss preparing for your next step. You’ll be glad you did before having to make a rushed decision.
