8 HOME CHANGING
(& the truth that frees you)
Is it time to make a change?
Don’t let these common myths hurt you by keeping you from your dreams.
I’ll help you get smoothly from where you are to where you want to be!
You don’t need help
Selling one home and buying another is a complicated process, especially if your ability to buy what you want depends on selling what you have. Your success depends on lots of interconnected pieces coordinating well and coming together smoothly. You need an expert coach, guide, promoter, negotiator, and advocate to help you reach your goals. My help will minimize your risk, boost your success, and probably save you more than it costs!
You should wait until you know you’re ready before asking for help
The earlier I start helping you, the better your options will be. Gathering information early will help us plan the best strategy to get you what you want. It doesn’t cost any more to have me start helping when you start wondering if your hopes can work out.
You have to wait until the right time of year
There is more sales volume in some seasons than others, but the ratio of available to sold homes, and the time it takes to sell, stay pretty consistent. There are good opportunities all year.
You’ll have to move twice
You might be able to qualify to buy the home you want without needing to sell first. If so, you can negotiate the best terms for your purchase, because your offer isn’t contingent. You could move comfortably and then sell without showing hassles. Another option is a bridge loan, which would make it possible to buy first. If you must sell first, we can time your purchase to sync with your sale so you can move straight from the old house to your new home.
You need an appraisal to know how to price your house
Your house is worth what a qualified buyer will pay you for it. I will help you price your house for maximum profit so you can sell it without having to pay for an appraisal.
Good preparation isn’t essential
Confirming your loan approval before starting your search allows you to beef up your buying power and plan your best strategy. Taking time before we start marketing to prime your house so it impresses buyers will help you sell faster and make more money.
You can’t control the timing of your sale
We will know quickly how the current buyers respond to your home and its price, so you can adjust as needed to get the results you want. If a great home comes available and you don’t want to miss it, you can reduce your price to motivate offers and secure a quick contract.
