“Hey Jeremy, when’s a good time to sell my home?”
I get this question all the time – twice today, in fact. A few times this week. There are thousands of other Realtors that are going to tell you “now’s a great time to sell a home!”, but you might have noticed that earlier they said “now’s a great time to buy a home!”, too. So which is it?
The truth is, I really don’t know. Your situation, and your motivation, is going to be different from someone else’s. One person today was looking to sell in order to pay off student loans, so he and his family are looking to downsize for a while so that they can put themselves in a better financial position. The mortgage payment is comfortable, but they want to do more. Another has a house that reminds him of painful times, and he wants the house sold yesterday in order to put the hurt behind him. Think the motivations are different?
Don’t be fooled by those who seem to be saying “NOW” when trying to answer the question of whether it’s a good time to sell. A home will sell in any market – it might sell better in one market than another, but a home will still sell. So weigh your options, review the data, and talk to your Nest agent – we’ll help you work through your options and decide what’s best for you.
