The right time to sell is when you need to move. When you’ve outgrown the house you’re living in. When you need more space, when you cannot afford to live there anymore, when you need to move out of state. There can be a million reasons why cannot stay in that house. That is the right time to sell. That is the right time to sell, do not procrastinate. Get yourself a real estate broker, list the house for sale for the right price and get that house sold quickly. You do not want your house to be a bus stop. You don’t want traffic coming through your house with unapproved buyers or people who know that there’s no way this house is going to sell for that price, but they come to take a look anyway to see why would you price it at that price, it’s wrong… it’s too high. But they come and look and you’re thinking…
“Oh I’m getting people to come in. This house is going to sell at the wrong price.”
It will not.
The right time to sell is when you have a broker on your side and has given you all that you need to see. That is the true value of your house. They can sell it at a certain time because you know you have a time frame to live by.
“Listen I need to move out-of-state, I’m moving at this point. We need to sell this house.”
Or you’re buying another house and you need the proceeds from this house to buy the other house. Or you had twins and now you need three bedrooms instead of one. Or you lost your job. You got another job and it’s not paying you as much so now we have to inform the mortgage servicer that your no longer can afford to pay this particular mortgage. You may not want to modify the loan. Maybe the house does not qualify for a modification of loan. So… you sell the house. Get out of a situation if you do not need to be there. There’s no need to procrastinate. The best time to sell is when you need to sell and then you move to a mortgage broker to get yourself approved for another house if you need to sell. You move to a real estate broker if you just need to sell this house because you need to get out of town, you’re moving to another state. You need to sell. The best time to sell is when you need to sell and you move at that particular point.
