Before Selling Your Home
Know your finances before selling your home

3) Finances – So do you know how much equity you have in your home and how much you’ll clear when you sell your home? Do you have an existing mortgage that needs to be paid off? How much do you have invested in the home that you’ll get to write off? How much tax exposure might you have when you sell and also have you looked at your finances as a whole? Do you have a very clear picture of what your total financial picture looks like? Sometimes sitting down with a financial advisor can be really helpful before selling your home so that way you can enter into the market confidently because you’ll know what your outcome is going to be.

Know where you are going before selling your home

2)  Where are you going? Are you moving out of state, are you going to downsize, or are you moving within the state? Have you looked at those places? Have you gone to those places because sometimes it can be a little bit of a fairy tale in our mind. You know, like you think you’ve always wanted to live in a particular place, and then you go there and you’re like… I hate it, so before selling your home, make sure you’ve spent some time wherever you’re thinking of going to make sure that it feels like it’s a fit for you at this stage of life.

Know what kind of lifestyle you prefer before selling your home

1) Lifestyle – What kind of lifestyle do you want to live? This could mean everything from what kind of dwelling you’re going to live in, to where it’s gonna be, who it’s gonna be near and what you’ve got available to you. For example, do you want to live closer to your grandchildren, your children or your friends who’ve moved out of state. Maybe you want to just golf eight days a week or hang with your friends who’ve moved down to the desert. You’ve already given your family 50 years and now you just want to go party! So when you’re thinking about selling your home, think about what’s most important to you and what’s the real driver! That will make the sale worth it in the end because it is a lot of work to sell at home and uproot your life; however ultimately if you’ve got the prize waiting for you where you’re going it will totally be worth it.

Ultimately, selling your home is a big decision, and folks often wonder if now is a good time to sell. Well, I can tell you that with the inventory for homes so low and the interest rates for home loans even lower, now could be a fantastic time to think about selling your home… even the financial gurus at Motley Fool are confirming that now is a great time to think about selling your home:
