We want everyone to feel prepared when they start their real estate journey.
One way to be ready is to get a head start on that first meeting with your agent, identify any housing needs that could be met by selling. Some of the most common needs are below.
- Are you changing jobs?
- Is your family size changing?
- Are you retiring?
- Are you experiencing new health issues?
- Is your home or neighborhood unsafe?
- Is your area too noisy, congested, or inconvenient?
- Has your income significantly decreased?
Experiencing one or more of these significant life changes could mean selling your home is your best option, maybe even a necessity. If that new job adds thirty minutes to your commute or a specialist in another city could better address your health issues, selling might be the solution. Cheyenne is friendly because we don’t have as much traffic, but we have various residents who work in Northern Colorado but live here. Therefore finding a home that is closer to I25, could be of benefit!
On the other hand, if you have a baby on the way or retirement is around the corner, then maybe your current home can still suit your needs after a few alterations. Either way, you will be more successful if you set realistic real estate goals and discuss all the options with your real estate agent. They can help you know if the market can meet your needs and practical opportunities. Sometimes you may have to buy knowing that work will need to be done to the home to meet your needs, or perhaps the answer is to do new construction from the start.
Answer these questions in this test and then talk to your real estate professional. They can help you navigate the sale of your home and the purchase of your next home.
