DECIDING TO SELL
So you’ve decided to sell your house. Before doing anything else, it’s wise to sit down and clarify your motivations and draw up a basic time frame for the selling process.
Why Sell? Do you intend to simply find a larger or smaller home, or do you plan on moving to another neighborhood, school district, city or state? You might think your reasons are obvious, but 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 me to determine the most appropriate option for your specified financial, lifestyle and real estate goals.
When Should I Sell? You should immediately establish your timeframe for selling. Ideally, if there’s no pressing need to sell immediately, we can meet for a thorough review of the current market conditions and determine the most favorable time to sell. In addition, I have considerable experience with potential home update trade-offs and home staging ideas that can make a significant difference in your home sale success and resultant sale price.
What’s The Market Like? When you work with me, you can be sure that you’ll have my professional knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills at work for you to arrive at the best market asking price and terms. During the home selling process, I’ll keep you updated on the marketplace and the price, features, financing, terms and conditions of competing properties.
How Do I Optimize My Finances? Deciding to sell your home requires serious consideration of your current financial situation and future possibilities. Backed by my experience and advice, you’ll be able to assess the potential proceeds of selling your home. Additionally, with help from your tax advisor and/or financial planner, you will be able to factor in effective tax savings and estate planning strategies. These steps will ensure that you not only take control of your finances, but also use them to their fullest potential.
