Selling Your Home is an Incredibly Important Personal Decision: Talk to a Professional.
Often times, folks start to think about the pros and cons of leaving a house they have made a home. The emotional times of the experiences that have happened there; from raising a first child, to a whole family and then some… Then comes the thoughts of the financials. Does it make sense to move? Do you have enough equity in the home to put money into a next house to make a home? Are you down size, up-sizing, there… are so many elements that make this experience special and personal to you. Then think about this: how do you price the home?
Yes, a home evaluation tool online can give you an idea of the basics, the jist, so to speak, of how to price a home, but a real estate professional is the one who studies numbers and real estate pricing day in and day out. It is so interesting to see the Zestimates, and estimates and generic terms of pricing that an online calculator can give you; however, that isn’t going to give you the number that a buyer will choose to pay for your home. Talking with a real estate professional who works day in and day out on pricing homes and making it their business to know the market will help you understand and market your home effectively.
Whether you should stay or go from your home is entirely up to you, but a true real estate professional can let you know about the market, what it means for you to sell in the current conditions and what price point you would be best suited to price your home in.
