It's Time to Move Up!

Here's the dilemma, at the time you bought your current home it was the right place for your family's needs. It was the perfect home that fit your finances, your family size and perfect for your lifestyle. That was three kids and several promotions ago. With the passing of time, you're wondering where all the space went?

Longing for More Room or an Upgrade?

Like many growing families, that cozy feeling of your current home has gradually drifted into wishing there was more space. You realize it's time to make a move. You figured it's worth tackling the challenges involved in moving even if it's across town. This much we know- it makes no difference if you're moving across town or across the country, moving is never easy. It's tough on your physically and mentally. Plus you have to work through the logistics of selling the home you live in and purchasing a new one, often at the same time. That's when it gets complicated and you know you will need an expert real estate professional who has experience managing two transactions at the same time. That is where we come in!

Preparing for a Move Up

Before you think about buying a bigger home, begin by prioritizing your home buying needs. Your life has changed since you last bought your current home, so your needs as well may have changed dramatically.

Just in case you have forgotten, here are some of the more important aspects of buying a home:

  • Select an experienced Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Troth, REALTORS® sales professional to help explain the process to you.
  • Get loan pre-approval or at least pre-qualified for a mortgage
  • Budget for the costs of the new home. Arrange or save funds for the downpayment. Reserve funds for your transition.
  • Acquaint yourself with available homes in your price range and areas of interest. You can start your home search here.

Your Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Troth, REALTORS® sales professional will be able to assist you in answering the following questions:

  • What do I need to do to get my current home ready for the market
  • The importance of pricing your current home right based upon current market conditions

  • What if you have to make a contingency sale offer
