Thank you for stressing all the important points of why it is a great reason to sell.
I couldn't agree more with them. At this time interest rates are at an all time low and homes are affordable to people who once couldn't afford to buy!
What a perfect time to become a homeowner :)
"To sell or not to sell?" That is the question. If you are debating whether or not now is the right time to sell your home you may want to consider the following 5 reasons why selling your house now is a great idea.
1.) Your House Will Get More Exposure Now Than in the Winter - Housing sales typically slow down in the summer and then pick-up in September and October. The fall is a great time to sell and it consistently outperforms the winter season.
2.) Distressed Properties Will Impact Prices - Foreclosures and short sales will increase this fall and winter. This downward pressure on prices in the next 12-18 months makes selling your home soon a perfect time. Act now before the distressed properties become your competition.
3.) Mortgages Will Become More Difficult to Attain - With new legislation being considered to make it more difficult for buyers to qualify for loans, now may be the best time to sell. Less demand equals lower prices.
4.) It is the Perfect Time to Move-Up - Prices and interest rates are at all time lows, so this may be an ideal time for you to find your dream home. You will be in a better position to gain larger equity as prices eventually appreciate.
5.) You Get to Move On with Your Life - Ask yourself why you are looking to buy/sell. Are you looking for a newer, nicer home? Is your family expanding and you need more space? Have you been relocated and need to purchase a new property? Whatever the case may be, don't let the less-than-stellar housing market prevent you from finding the home you've always wanted.
