Deciding to Sell
So, should you sell your house? Truthfully, there isn’t a right answer, or any “one size fits all” answer. It will vary across different situations and you have to do a little bit of thinking and planning to determine what makes the most sense for you.
Your real estate agent is probably going to ask you why you are selling. In fact, anyone looking at your house will probably ask this question. Many people have a need to sell such as a job change, or necessary relocation. Others just want a new house. You might think your reasons are obvious, but you would do well to consider the implications of each option for your family’s lifestyle, opportunities and finances. Being clear about your intentions for selling will make it easier for your REALTOR® to determine the most appropriate option for your specified goals.
The point is really evaluating the necessity of selling. There is a lot to consider and it can be a stressful time if not well planned. So, before you put the sign in the front yard because the bathroom isn’t the right color, clarify your motivations and draw up a basic time frame for the selling process.
DECIDE WHEN TO SELL
You should immediately establish your time frame for selling. If you need to sell quickly, an experienced agent may have more urgent marketing solutions for you. If there’s no pressing need to sell immediately, you can sit down with your REALTOR® to thoroughly review the current marketing conditions and find the most favorable time to sell.
