Reasons to List your home now!We are often asked "Is it time to sell my home?"The answer to that question is based on what your families' goals are. If you don't need or want to move for a few years it might make sense to wait for the housing industry to recover and prices to appreciate. However, if you wish to move within the next six to eighteen months, it is probably better to sell sooner rather than later. Here are reasons why:Your House Will Get More Exposure Now Than the WinterHousing sales usually level off in the summer and then regain momentum in September and October. The spring buyers' market has passed. Don't miss the early fall market. It has consistently outperformed the winter season.Mortgages Will Become More Difficult to AttainLending standards are continuing to tighten. There is legislation currently being considered that will make it even harder for buyers to qualify. Less demand will equate to lower prices.It is the Perfect Time to Move-UpWith prices where they are and interest rates at all time lows, there may have never been a better time to move-up into your dream home. If you move into a more desirable home now, you will be in position to gain larger equity as prices eventually appreciate.You Get to Move On with Your LifeProbably the most important reason to sell is so you can get on with your life. You are considering selling for a reason. Do not allow a less-than-stellar housing market prevent you from reaching your goals as an individual or as a family. Think about the reasons you are thinking about moving. Are these reasons really important to you? If you have to take less than you were originally hoping to get for your house, your family has a question to ask each other: Is the dollar difference in sales price worth putting off our plans? Only you and your family know the answer to that question.September 06 2011 - Town of Madison11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
