Deciding whether or not to sell your home can be a difficult choice. Unless you’re decision is being made for you (thanks to a job out of state, or something along those lines), it can be hard to know when the right time is. So, should you sell your home now?
We can’t make this decision, but we can definitely do our best to help! We’ve come up with a few questions for you to ask yourself before you make the big decision.
Are you wanting to move? Unless you have a job or another large reason for moving, ask yourself if you really want to move. Are you feeling pressure to make the change because all your neighbors and friends are doing so? Don’t just give into peer pressure. Don’t make the change unless you’re ready! Really evaluate your reasons for moving.
Do you fit? Is your family growing? Is it shrinking? Is your home too big or too small for your changing family? Whether you’re busting at the seams or endlessly cleaning the empty rooms, having a home that doesn’t fit is a good reason to move. Whether you need to upsize or downsize, asking yourself if you “fit” in your home, can help you know if you need to move and what you’re looking for.

How does your home fit in with your lifestyle? What is your lifestyle like? What does a typical day or week consist of? Does your current home meet your needs? If you live 30 minutes away from your kids’ school, and 20 minutes away from the closest shopping center that you go to weekly, maybe you should consider a change. Is it in a convenient location? Does it have room in the backyard for your son to practice soccer to prepare for his game each Thursday night? Take into consideration what you and your family need.
How does the market look? If you’ve had the luxury of waiting for the market to be right, now is the time to sell! If you haven’t heard, it’s currently a seller’s market! Buyers are on the move, so home prices are looking good from a seller’s standpoint. If the market was the reason you were holding back, don’t wait any more!
Can you afford to move? Selling your home can cost time and money. Do you have the ability to get your home ready for buyers? You want the home to look gorgeous on the outside and the inside, which may require some Saturday projects and trips to Home Depot. (Click here to read our blog on preparing to sell your home.) You also want to be able to sacrifice time away from your home to allow potential buyers to take a tour. Then there’s the cost of actually putting it on the market and closing the deal. Overall you want to evaluate where you’re at and decide if this is something you can afford!
