Move Up Buyer Checklist, Part 2. Have to sell in order to buy!
You Have To Sell In Order To Buy
What you need to know when navigating a double move.
Step 1: Decide if you are going to wait to start house hunting until after you close on your home and live somewhere temporary in-between. You won't be able to make an offer on a new house until your current home is on the market and possibly under contract.
Step 2: Figure out how much your home is worth and what your estimated proceeds from the sale will be.
Step 3: Determine your budget for your new home and get a pre-approval from a lender.
Step 4: Get your home market ready and listed for sale. A few tips: Price it right from the start, have an inspection so you know if there are any major issues, stage your home, and hire an agent who has digital marketing strategies as part of their listing plan. Negotiate a longer timeframe for contract to close.
Setp 5: Once you're under contract on your current home, it's time to start your new home search!
