Are you a homeowner on the fence about selling your home? Hi, I am Krista Mashore with eXp Realty and Homes by Krista. If you are thinking about selling in today’s market, it is worth considering all the reasons why making the move could make sense to you. According to Real Trends, and I quote, “The most common sellers will be homeowners downsizing, people moving to get more space, and families looking for better schools for their children.” In a recent survey by Realtor.com, here are the four top reasons homeowners were considering listing their homes.
Sellers want to Take Advantage of the Current Market to Make a Profit Thirty-three percent of homeowners want to take advantage of the low inventory market. Even though home prices have declined slightly in some markets, they are still higher overall than a few years ago. This is mainly due to the low inventory we are experiencing. Another reason is the Home No Longer Meets Their Needs.
Thirty-two percent state they have outgrown their current home. The average person has been in their home for ten years. For some, that is a long time, and a lot of changes impact what you need in a home. Another reason was, wanting to Move Close to Family Twenty-Seven Percent of homeowners want to live closer to friends and family and twenty-five percent want to downsize to a smaller home that has less maintenance and work. The bottom line, you have a lot to consider when deciding if it is time to move on.
