Just as buying a home is a big deal, so is selling your home! Of course, the two events have their own reasons for being a deal, when making a big decision like that there are always some “must ask questions” to think about!
The first and honestly the most important question to ask yourself is “What am I trying to accomplish with the sale of my home?” Why are you wanting to move? Is the market up and it’s the right time to sell? Have you outgrown the house? Or maybe it’s the opposite – maybe its town to downsize! Whatever the reason, understanding what goals you are trying to achieve through of the sale of your home is imperative to deciding whether it’s the right choice!
Once you have established what you are trying to achieve the next question is “What balance left on my primary mortgage and any other home equity loans?”. While selling your home may seem like a great idea you have to determine if its financially feasible. The ideal situation you would be profiting from the sale of your home, however when you factor in second mortgages and equity loans some people find profiting from the sale something that isn’t a realistic option. Peek at how much you owe on your mortgages and/or loans. Your property may be valued at more than what you owe, and so with the sale you’ll come out on top.
Lastly, is it necessary to hire a real estate agent?? With the way real estate has changed and grown over the years, sometimes the “traditional” sale of a home just isn’t the best fit! It is best to keep in mind that there are several other alternative methods to selling your home now! The Investor Hub is one of those options!
