I just heard from my longtime pal, Paul, who shared the news that he and his wife had just sold their beautiful house and would be moving in three weeks. I was surprised to hear this because their sweet little bungalow was their empty-nester home, the smaller place they’d down-sized into after their kids had grown and gone and begun families of their own. Plus, Paul’s green thumb had turned the yard into a real standout. But things change and now, to be nearer the grandkids, a move was in order.
I’m thrilled for my friends, of course. In our red-hot real estate market they got multiple offers and, no surprise, sold for over-asking. I expect there’ll be an invite to a housewarming party soon.
Whether they’d planned to or not, Paul and his wife were part of an annual ritual: the spring selling season. That’s the time of year when crocuses start to bloom and for-sale signs sprout on front lawns everywhere – even your friends’.
Deciding to sell your home isn’t a choice you make lightly. In addition to knowing exactly why you want to move, you need to find a broker, prep and primp your home for sale, and understand who today’s buyers are and what they’re looking for so your home can boast it.
If that all sounds like a lot to consider, well, it is. But the process of selling a home is much easier when you know what to expect.
