Is It Time to List Your Home?
December 28th, 2016
Life gets busy and many of us have plans about what we want for family, work and life. You may have even thought about how long you plan to spend in your current home. Just like your retirement planning your home is probably one of your biggest investments. And just like those types of accounts its worth revisiting plans every now and then to see how current trends might be advantageous for you.
Maybe your plan was to stay in your home for the next 5 or 10 years. But with available real estate in great demand, NOW may present a tremendous opportunity to sell.
Reasons to consider changing your plans could include:
All your children have graduated from high school
Often, considerations for NOT moving include keeping your kids with their friends in their school. In the event that yours have all graduated, moving your plans up to make the most of a situation could be a good plan for you.
You’d like to spend the next 10 years of your career, focused on your career (not home maintenance)
No home is “worry-free”. Every piece of real home-based estate includes the need for maintenance. So whether you’re looking to shed the need for lawn care or up-keep on the interior, Its worth considering your options.
Elder parents who’ve lived with you are now in an Elder care environment.
If you spent years caring for your parents or in laws in your own home, but they’ve come this point we understand. Much like caring for kids, you wanted to keep them in a familiar home but almost everyone arrives at a situation when full time care is required. This change can be a good time to speak with a professional realtor.
You were already considering “down sizing”
