Should You Buy or Sell First?

One of the biggest dilemmas when considering a move is deciding whether it would be best to purchase your new home before listing, or getting your home sold before looking for one to buy. This is an important reason why you should seek the advice of a knowledgeable, experienced Realtor.

There are a number of factors to consider; time of year, condition of the market, inventory levels, your personal situation, mortgage options, and your comfort level when it comes to risk.  There are a number of strategies that we can apply to ensure your stress levels are kept low, and you are comfortable with whichever option you decide. We will work hand in hand with you every step of the way.

There are plenty of Realtors out there offering easy solutions, such as a “Guaranteed Sale Program” or “Cash Offer on Your Home”, which we would caution you to be wary of. Often times these are quick gimmicks to entice you to transact quickly, while the fine print strongly protects that Realtor from any liability. We have worked on teams who have offered this in the past and would be happy to explain to you the pros and cons to ensure you have all of the facts needed to make an informed decision.
