Not everyone has the luxury of waiting for what they hope is the perfect time to sell or buy a home. Many people have to buy or sell a home because a major life-altering event has occurred. Here are some examples.

People getting married often need a home large enough for themselves and their future family. A new baby comes into a family whose home space is already tight. Empty nesters find themselves with a home that’s way more than they require. People retire and need a smaller home that costs less to maintain, in a town with lower taxes. People need to accommodate elderly parents or grown children moving back in. People who now work out of the office consistently need a home with a dedicated space to work productively without disturbing family members, or being disturbed by them. The dissolution of a marriage or the loss of a loved one can also prompt a move.

When you’re in one of these situations, you need to act—no matter what’s happening with mortgage rates, home prices, and housing inventory. The good news is, you don’t have to go it alone. Whether you’re a buyer, a seller, or both, a real estate professional (we hope that’s us!) can be an invaluable partner to help you transition smoothly through these big life events. Here are a few of the ways we help.

When You’re Buying
Today’s home prices and mortgage rates can certainly create challenges for buyers. That’s where a real estate professional’s experience, expertise, and knowledge of the local housing market can save you a ton of time and a boatload of stress. That’s because we’ll take the time to completely understand your needs, preferences, and budget. This enables us to focus your search for you, on options that meet your needs and fulfill your desires.

When You’re Selling
Sellers typically want to get the most out of the investment they’ve made in their home. This gives them the funds they require to find the best home for their needs going forward. Here, a real estate agent’s professional expertise really comes into play. We can accurately pinpoint your home’s market value, propose a few improvements to boost its appeal, and put together a marketing plan to deliver the sale. Plus, our negotiating skills will make sure you get a fair price for your home, so you can move on to the next chapter of your life in the best shape financially.
