Is now the right time to sell?

Selling your home is all about timing. Not just the time of the year you sell your home but all the other factors involved. Like are you selling and downsizing locally or moving out of the area to be closer to family? Or maybe you’ve outgrown your home and need a bigger home or maybe you just want to be by the ocean or on a golf course? Or do what I’ve dreamed of doing if I ever retire, get a travel trailer and enjoy traveling the country.
Then there is the current housing market to consider. We just came from what I term a hyper seller’s market. I’ve been a real estate broker since 1999 (first in Southern California now in Charleston) so I’ve seen some interesting housing markets but the past one was very different. Sellers were just deciding hey let’s sell and no real thought was given because you didn’t have to be concerned, if you haven’t maintained it or upgraded it, how the home showed or even if the list price was reasonable. The buyer demand was high and inventory low creating multiple offers over asking, appraisal gaps, waiving contingencies and so much more. The market calmed down when the interest rates rose so it put us in more of a normal market. This means that there is more negotiations going on which tends to level out the market between the buyers and sellers where it’s more of a win-win situation.
With all this said, what really matters is if it’s the right time for your personal goals. We can work through any market whether it’s a seller, buyers or neutral market. If you have to sell to buy your next home we can help with that as well having done it many times over the past 20+ years.
So call us today and let’s talk and see what your situation and options are and if it’s the right time to sell. There is no obligation ever and if nothing else you will learn the value of your home and how to determine when the right time is to sell.
