Many Homeowners or Home Sellers are “on the fence” about listing their Homes for Sale. Where are Home Prices & Interest Rates headed; can Home Buyers qualify for a mortgage? These are all valid concerns; however, here are the Top 5 Reasons to List & Sell Your Home Sooner rather than later.
1. The Most Serious Buyers Are Out There Right Now
Most people realize that the housing market is hottest from April through June. The most serious Home Buyers are well aware of this & for that reason, come out in early spring in order to beat the heavy competition. These Home Buyers are Ready, Willing & Able to buy and are in the market right now!
2. There Is Less Competition Now, but inventory is increasing rapidly…
Housing supply always grows from the spring through the early summer. The choices Home Buyers have will continue to increase over the next few months. Don’t wait for other Homeowners or Sellers in the Sands Point, Port Washington & Manhasset, NY areas to put their homes on the market. Your Home will stand out like a shining star right Now, rather than a tree in the forest in a month or two.
3. The Sales Process Will Be Quicker
One of the biggest challenges of the 2014 Housing Market has been the length of time it takes from contract to closing. Banks are requiring more and more paperwork before approving mortgages. As the Local Sales Market heats up, Banks will be flooded with inquiries, processing new loans and increasing timelines to closings; thus, putting your lives on hold.
4. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move-Up
If you are moving up to a larger, more expensive home, consider doing it now. Prices are projected to appreciate by over 19% from now to 2018. If you are moving to a higher priced home, it will cost you more money, both in down payment and mortgage payment; if you wait. You can also lock-in your 30 year housing expense with an interest rate at approximately 4.5% right now. Mortgage Rates are projected to be well over 5% for the 2015 Sales Market; only 11 months from now.
5. It’s Time to Move On with Your Life
Look at the reason you decided to Sell Your Home in the first place and decide whether it’s worth waiting. Is money more important than being with your family, having your health, freedom or Quality of Life? How much more money do you think you’ll net by waiting? One year is insignificant; 4 years will net you more Only if trading Down, but cost you More if trading Up.
