Why You Shouldn’t Wait To Sell Your House

There is no time like the present.

Homes are selling like hot cakes right now and if you have recently purchased or sold a home or know someone who has, this probably doesn’t come as a surprise. In this strong sellers market many homes are receiving an offer or even multiple offers in a matter of days instead of weeks or months. While the rush of showings and receiving an offer or several offers is very exciting, it is also common for sellers to feel a sense of doubt. This feeling often stems from concern that a seller should have waited to sell because they could have sold for more. However, we encourage sellers to stop second-guessing themselves and to make peace with when they sold and for how much. Here are some reasons you should never worry if you sold your home too soon:

  • Step back and consider the long term 

    If you worked with a REALTOR® from the Monteith-Legault Real Estate Company, rest assured that our knowledgeable team of experts negotiated the best possible deal for you. The housing market, just like the stock market, can change at any time. It’s better that you took advantage of the best market at the time rather than waited to see if things changed later on. Consider how you will feel in 5 or 10 years, chances are the most important thing you will remember is that you sold your home for a great price and had an exceptional and professional experience with our company.

  • Home values are increasing everywhere, not just on the home you are sellingIf you are looking to buy a new house after the sale of your home, consider that values everywhere are increasing. If you wait a year to sell your house to get more return on your investment, chances are the next property you buy will also be sold at a higher price.
  • The home may not fit your needs anymoreMost people sell their homes for a reason, not just on a whim. Maybe your family is growing, you accepted a job across town or maybe you have just outgrown your current home. Whatever the reason, embrace it and know that bigger better things are to come.

We encourage you to not worry and simply embrace the experience of selling your home. If you would like us to evaluate your unique situation and provide a Comparative Market Analysis at no cost, please contact us today.
