Is it Time to Sell my Emerald Coast Home?Posted on 04/05/14
If you have been paying attention to the state of the US Housing recovery, then you already know the real estate big picture. According to Zillow, “Buyers can expect less competition, and sellers [will] reap the rewards of a market tilted towards them.”
With a blossoming market, the question posed becomes, “Should I sell my Northwest Florida home?” If you are on the fence, there are some things you should consider that may affect your decision.
First, have you outgrown your current home? If you are in a home that is too small for your current and future needs, it may be time to consider taking the plunge into some more square footage. Now is the time to take advantage of interest rates before they begin to rise. The same goes for those empty-nesters. Downsizing could have its perks, for instance less cost and less maintenance. Interest rates only going up, all the more reason to sell now and buy now. You want to take advantage of low rates for the long hall.
Ultimately, it all boils down to necessity. Sell your home when you need. Buy a home when you want, and when you can afford one.
