Knowing the Right Time to Sell Your House

Posted: September 10, 2018 5:46 pm


Selecting the time to sell your home is not a task many look forward to. While most people don’t plan on living in their first home forever – or second or maybe even third – it can sometimes kind of feel like you’re breaking up with a longtime significant other and ending things can be way easier said than done.

So how do you know when the time is right to move forward and sell your house? Continue reading to find out some indicators that it is indeed time and how we can help make it less stressful and a better experience overall.


You’ve Outgrown Your Home

While your actual family size may not be increasing, your lifestyle can quickly outgrow your house. Millions of American’s are working at least part-time from home now, with many requiring, or at least desiring, a dedicated home office. If your man-cave or she-shed has overtaken the entire home or that cute little puppy that you adopted turned out to be some sort of giant Timber Wolf and Bull Mastiff hybrid, your house might be a little too small.


Your Home Has Outgrown You

Children grow up and while it can be hard to let go of a family home, having a large four-bedroom home for yourself or just you and your spouse can be a little overkill. If you find that the utility bills are just ridiculous for 1 or 2 people, or the house/yard work has become more than you can handle, it could be time to downsize and move.


You’ve Outgrown The Neighborhood

Friends move on and strangers move in. Jobs revolve and while you once worked fairly close to home, you’re now driving almost an hour each morning just to get to work. Dynamics change over time and if you’re no longer feeling at home at home, it’s probably time to sell. While a little effort may acclimate you to the changes and make the home enjoyable again if you start to resent where you live it can definitely bleed into other aspects of your life. And that’s something you definitely want to avoid.


It Doesn’t Make Sense To Remodel

If remodeling won’t offer a return on your investment, meaning your home is already similar in style and condition of some of the priciest homes in the neighborhood, a pricey remodel likely isn’t a very good idea at all. Giving that bathroom or kitchen a desired makeover can make your house feel like new again, which may be all that you need for you want to opt not to sell, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a good financial decision.
