Times are definitely changing and you may be considering moving you & your family into a new home – preferably to Florida. But before you start searching for that perfect home, you’ll need to make sure you can sell your existing home if you need to. The decision may be a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable real estate market you’re living in. Although there is no magic formula for determining the best time for you to move, there are several factors you should consider.
The Best Time to Sell
In most cases, spring is the best time to sell a home, although considering the recent pandemic lockdowns in most states, the timing is really not as obvious. Prior to 2020, spring was hot because the holidays were over, the new school year is still a while away, and lawns look their best. Plus, during spring there has historically been the largest amount of buyers, as well as when home inventories are highest.
To many people buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating and closing, there are a so many moving pieces that may leave home purchasers bewildered.
A professional, experienced real estate agent can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. Here at Liberty Real Estate Services, we know the ins and outs of the real estate industry, you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience.
Here are some of the key areas that we can help you with:
Get Pre-approved by a Lender
If you provide us with some basic information about your income, savings, and debt, we can assist you in getting pre-approved by a reputable lender. The lender will then go through your finance options, your monthly payment amount that you can afford, and what to expect for a down payment and closing costs.
Choosing a Home
For a lot of buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. We will help you with this process by offering objective information about each home you look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, we can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Making an Offer
Once you’ve found the home you want to purchase, we will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area. This helps us determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, and other factors like inspections and repairs, we will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the best deal possible.
The closing can be a stressful and complicated process. In some regions, the title company handles the closing process, while in other areas an attorney handles it. Once again, that’s where the expertise of our Liberty Real Estate agents can help ensure that everything goes smoothly.
