It's always the small pieces that make the big picture

It's always the small pieces that make the big picture

Do you find yourself asking the same questions over and over again:

  • Should I sell my home at these peak prices? 
  • What is my house worth?
  • Where would I go? 
You are not alone. We are hearing this refrain from many of our clients and like a missing puzzle piece can keep you from seeing the whole picture, not having realistic "numbers" can perpetuate endless dialogue and indecision. The missing piece is strategic planning.

Here's what we know:

The assumption, rightfully so, is that you will pay top dollar buying a home in this market. But it is possible for the sales price of your home to substantially offset a purchase price. If you are financing, interest rates are only headed one way: Up. So it's still helpful if you plan on carrying a mortgage of any amount to finance now versus later. We have some lenders that actually have jumbo rates lower than conventional rates. Many of our clients are asking how they win in a multiple bid if they are financing since cash offers are king. With solid financing and pre-approval, we can utilize creative tactics to make offers that are not "subject to financing" to ensure you have more leverage. 
Any move requires a compelling reason for the change, and often fear accompanies change. But don't let the fear of numbers paralyze you without first knowing what they are. Knowledge is power. We can show you the numbers, share our market insights and help you create a strategic plan. 
The last two years have left many reassessing their goals, dreams, lifestyles, and living arrangements. All of those things are tethered to where you live and the house you live in. There are still excellent investments out there. Many segments of our market still have room for growth. If you are tired of wondering whether now is the time to sell, take a step in 2022 to gather all the information and explore your options.
