Five Ways To Know You're Ready To Sell

Posted by Rich Neste on Wednesday, October 21st, 2015 at 11:41am.

Have you thought about selling your Hilton Head Island or Bluffton home, but aren’t quite ready to make the leap? Here are some things to consider when deciding if it’s the right time to sell.

  1. Motivation. “Let’s see how much we can get for it…” Before you test the Bluffton Real Estate market by leaping into a listing, ask for a free home valuation from a Foundation Realty Agent. This is quicker than listing and can even help you choose the right agent when you decide to sell.
  2. Changing family. One of the biggest motivations for selling is when your family changes size. If your family is growing, or if the children are finally out of the nest, you may consider selling and relocating to a home the right size for your family. Or you may have thought about selling to move to a different school district in Bluffton or on Hilton Head Island. 
  3. Finances. What’s your financial situation? How much equity do you have in your home? If you sell, will you be able to buy the replacement home you want? There are some pretty stellar real estate deals in Bluffton right now. 
  4. Maintenance. Older homes need a lot of upkeep and the costs add up. You may consider buying a new home to save money and hassle. There are several new home developments in Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island.
  5. What’s next? Having a plan in place for your next home is essential. No matter your reasons for wanting to move, if you don’t know where you want to live next, you’re not ready to list your home for sale. Find the right place by compiling a list of the desirable attributes of your next home (i.e. good school district, closer to work, new neighborhood, etc.).
