Good economic news can be a little sparse right now and selling your home in today’s market can be intimidating if you are not working with a REALTOR® who has experience and market knowledge. Many homeowners are scared they will be selling their home for a discount in today’s market, and if you listen to the national news, this will only feed the hysteria.
Don’t base your decisions on what you read in the paper and hear on T.V. because not all markets are the same. The first step would be to request a comparative market analysis from a REALTOR® to determine if it’s the right time to sell or not.
Keep in mind, if you are selling your house for possibly less than your purchase price, you may be able to more-than offset this by your next purchase. Many homeowners are taking advantage of this with low interest rates to move up to their dream home!
