Your best first step is to clarify your needs and goals. Will you relocate across town or across the country? Upsize or downsize? Is there a life change ahead – marriage, a new job or a new family member?
Your reasons for moving will shape the plans and timeline for selling your home.
Moving is stressful under any circumstances but especially so if you have to. Mapping out a plan for selling quickly at a good price can help you to feel more confident and at ease.
If you can choose when to move, so much the better. Starting several months out is ideal – giving you time to prepare your house for the market, line up financing if you will buy again, and begin the search for your next home.
Once you’ve established the why and the when, consult a realtor for expert advice.
