It’s a well-known fact that the number one priority for savvy investors is to make sure that their money is protected so they can sleep at night. This same principal applies to real estate. Although achieving the highest possible price is important when selling your home, it’s also important to focus equally on how selling could improve the quality of your life. There’s usually a huge advantage to selling quickly so you can move on and enjoy the next step of your life. Consider the following questions and weigh them carefully against waiting to sell for a higher price.
Do I want to worry about rising interest rates for perspective buyers?
Will an additional few thousand dollars less than what I want really change the quality of my life?
Do I want to worry about a potential war in the middle east?
Is it worth sweating out another hurricane season?
Do I really want the aggravation of having strangers walking through my house for months on end?
Do I really want the aggravation of having my house in perfect condition to prepare for showings?
Do I want to worry about how many more competing listings will come on the market?
Do I really want to worry about how much more the government can impact the value of my home by more deficit spending?
How many more months do I want to disappoint myself and my family by not being able to do the things we want to do because our home hasn’t sold?
At the end of the day, isn’t it better to be able to sleep at night?
