Keep Your Eye on the Goal

If you’ve been wanting to sell your home and relocate to a new community, it just might be time to make some hard decisions so you can get on with your life. While today’s buyer’s market may mean you’ve been unable to get as much for your current home as you’d have liked, it also means you can get a great deal on your next home. If you plan to finance your purchase with a mortgage, the current record low interest rates offer even more incentive to buy a home now, rather than waiting.

Landfall real estateIt’s still a buyer’s market in the majority of areas across the country. In terms of supply and demand, this means that there are more homes available on the market than there are people looking to buy a home. In this type of market, many times those shopping for a home can negotiate lower prices because sellers are competing for buyers. This is a good situation for people buying homes like Landfall real estate in North Carolina, but generally not as good for sellers.

But if what you want is to sell your property and move on, then perhaps you should reconsider where your bottom line falls with regards to your asking price. Digging in your heels and holding firm on your price may only result in you staying in your house for the foreseeable future. Picture yourself 5 to 10 years from now, still in your home waiting for that best price. Would you still think it was the right decision?

Nobody has a crystal ball to read into the future but keep your main objective in mind when you put your house on the market. If your objective is to move forward with your life then don’t get tangled up in the process of trying to make a killing on the sale of your present home. Chances are its value has appreciated so much in the time that you’ve lived there that you’ve likely more than doubled your initial investment and by anyone’s standards, that’s a pretty good deal.

Everyone at Carolina Plantations would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! If you'd like to see any of the Landfall real estate we currently have listed please give us a call at 910 575-0075.
