Should I Sell My House?

October 10, 2008 at 1:00 pm Leave a comment

You are ready to buy a new home. You need to sell your current home before you can afford to move. You are watching the news everyday and thinking to yourself, “should I sell my house?”

If you purchased your house in the last three years, you might want to consult a real estate agent who has a working knowledge of your local housing market before making this important decision. With the market in such a volatile state, understanding your home’s value and your housing market will be critical to your decision of whether or not to sell. A real estate agent in your area will have the answers to these tough questions.

Have you owned your home five years or longer? Despite the change in home values following the burst bubble, your home is likely worth more now than when you moved in. While the value of your home will likely be lower than during the housing boom, your home has still likely appreciated. Deciding whether or not to sell will be less drastic a decision for you.

Once you’ve made a decision on whether or not to sell, you’ll need to decide whether or not to use a real estate agent. Real estate agents know your local housing market and can be a valuable resource in determining your home’s value. Agents can also assist you with the process of finding your next house.

You wouldn’t have someone work on your car that has no previous experience with auto repair, or have a person with no knowledge of cars suggest a car for you to buy, would you?

If you’re considering selling your house, make sure you consult a local real estate expert before putting a sign in your yard and getting in over your head.
