You Know Your Next Step

After you sell your home, what happens next? If you're not sure where you want to buy a home after this, you may not be ready to get into the market. Most people who are motivated to sell their houses have their eyes on a particular neighborhood or part of town they want to call home next. If you're not sure where to go next, test the waters by viewing some properties with the help of a realtor. When you fall in love with a new place, you'll know it's time to get your current home on the market.

You're Not Attached to Your House

Homes are filled with memories, so it's no wonder that people become emotionally attached to them. If you're not ready to leave a home, you're likely to resist doing the things that need to be done to sell the property. Test your level of attachment by asking a realtor what changes you need to make to increase your home's appeal to buyers. If you balk at changing your wall color or ripping out your carpet, you may still be too emotionally invested to sell your home.

You're Financially Ready

Selling a home also means buying a home for most people. Talk to a realtor about selling prices in your neighborhood as well as in the area you hope to move to next. This will give you a better idea of how much you can net from selling your home and what you'll need to buy another home.
