FINDING YOUR AMARILLO HOME VALUE
Pink House Team
As with anything in life, when you are ready to sell your home you have to have a plan. Most people don't wake up one morning and say, "I'm selling my house today", then immediately put it on the market. Of course, there are people that do that but not the majority.
A plan must include several elements from the beginning (deciding to sell) to the end (having your house sold). There are many things to take into consideration.
Why sell and why sell now? There are hundreds of different reasons why you might want to sell your house. It can range anywhere from down-sizing, up-sizing, different location or school district or maybe just to get out of a big mortgage. It is never time to sell if you are just thinking about it. Selling a house is an event and can only be accomplished if you REALLY want to sell.
Deciding what to do next. Once you have made the decision to sell you must consider as part of your plan what you are going to do next! If you are moving away you will have a whole different set of plans to make than if you are staying in the same area. If you are staying in the area, your plan will include timing.
Which comes first--the chicken or the egg? Do you put your house on the market to sell first? Or do you find the new house that you want to buy first? There are pros and cons for each way. If you reallly want to sell, have the house in pristine showing condition, and have it priced right you could expect a quick sale. In that case, you might want to start looking immediately. If you, for instance, don't have it priced to sell within 60 days it would probably be wise to wait. There is nothing worse that finding your dream home and then not bw able to buy it!
