These are great questions to ask yourself, and now is the time to really analyze your housing, financial, and lifestyle goals. We are at, or close to, a pinnacle time to sell.
If you’ve been considering it even a little, here are a few considerations for your pondering session:
Only you can determine when you want to move from one home and community to another. Your lifestyle may be changing, you could just want extra space for your stuff, or you’ve always wanted to live on a golf course. Use caution if waiting out the recent market upswing is factoring too strongly into your decision process. It’s actually an excellent time to sell your Denver area home.
For your best result, always use a Realtor. Bots can’t do what we do, and For Sale by Owners eventually turn into For Sale by Realtors over 80% of the time. And a caution to buyers – photos look beautiful online, but until a knowledgeable agent takes you through the house so you can see, smell, and touch it, you can’t know how it will “feel” to live there.
Good agents know whether there’s radon in the area, expansive soils, encroachments, title issues, construction defects lawsuits, and much more. They know how to negotiate you through the inspection period to keep your sale or purchase on track. Listing agents can guide you through how to ethically and effectively handle disclosure issues, tell you honestly what improvements you should make to garner more for your house, and help research the qualifications of potential buyers. We look out for your best interests and help protect you from potential disputes.
Contact us if you’d like an assessment of your home’s value, or to see what’s on the market in your target neighborhood. We’re happy to help, and cheers to a fabulous 2018 for all!
