Maybe you’ve thought about selling your home, but it never seemed like the right time. Experts say that there are several signs that can guide you to knowing when it’s the right time to sell.
Your Family Has Grown – or Gotten Smaller
The small house you started in with one baby now has three children in it. Or, you’re an empty nester left alone in a big house after all the kids have moved out. The number one reason people sell their home is that they’ve outgrown it.
Your Work Life Has Changed
Many people started working from home this year – and many will likely continue to do so. Some had space for a home office, and some were less fortunate. If you plan to have a job that requires a home office, and your current home doesn’t have this option, then it might be time to sell.
You’re in a Seller’s Market
The deal is just too good to pass up. In a seller’s market, you have all the power. You’ll get the highest value for your home, and multiple buyers outbidding each other to get it. If you have a plan for where you’re going next, this might be a good time to sell.
Whatever the reason, assess your situation and make this decision thoughtfully. Selling your home might be the first step to the next big chapter of your life.
