You are ready to make a move and you want to buy the perfect home, but unless your home sells for a price you are happy with, you are not willing to move. What do you do?
In a Buyer’s Market, it also can be difficult. The buyer, to a point, dictates the selling price and the closing date. They may even have a condition regarding the sale of their own home.
What if you sell your home, firm and you are happy with the price and closing date. In a Buyer’s market, there are lots of homes to chose from, but the nicest ones still go fast and for more and you may be willing to pay and now you might be stuck moving somewhere, just to have a place to live. Dreams of the perfect home vanish.
This kind of balancing act requires and experienced agent to guide you in the process. They will help you determine what kind of market it truly is (never believe the news) and what the best options are for your specific scenario.
Pro Tip: If you want to buy first with a condition of sale on your offer, your home must be “Sign on the Lawn Ready.” If you happen to find a seller willing to accept a clause on the sale of your home, your home must be on the market within a day or two. Not kidding!
Book a 15 minute consultation to review your specific scenario and see if the market is right for you.
