Please don’t miss YOUR opportunity to sell your home. The best course of action?
1) Look at prices where you want to move. They may be less than what you expected or what you found when you did the research a few years ago. Consider areas just outside that neighborhood if the prices are still out of reach. The idea is to make the move while interest rates are in your favor!
2) Figure out your monthly payments for that home, based on what you can put down as a down payment and current interest rates.
3) Figure out what those payments might be if interest rates went up 1%.. It could be a few hundred dollars more a month. Do you want to spend that money if you don't have to?
4) Call me at 917-267-8811 to make an appointment for me to see your home and give you a realistic estimate of value in today’s market (or give you the contact information for a top local expert who can, if you are outside of my market area). I can also help you start looking for homes in your area of choice (or recommend someone who can), tell you what the realistic price is to offer for *that* home, and help you on both ends through the negotiating and closing process.
Nothing’s sadder than thinking, “I should have,” “I could have,” or “I wish I had,” as I heard so many people say in 2006-2010, when they didn’t sell their homes before the bubble burst. Instead, be the person who will look back at this time and think how glad they were that they made a decision to move on with their lives and their plans, the person who may have given up a little but gained a lot.
