  • See Family, More or Less - Frequently moving to be near relatives as families grow, age, or expand.
  • Up for a New Challenge - Flip or fix it up and make it your own.

Financial Reasons to Sell in 2019

In addition to downsizing because of financial life changes, people have other reasons finances are motivating their move!

  • Moving Up! - Outgrowing your home is one thing, but has your income? Perhaps you're making more now and thinking about an upgrade. Something bigger or flashier, a dream home come true if you will.
  • Deferred Maintenance - Also known as the "I don't wanna" reason. Some people don't want to put a new roof or replace other facets of the home. Sometimes, moving before such improvements can save you money. However, be careful how long you wait! 
  • Cash In Equity - "Some homeowners can't stand the fact their place is worth all that money and they can't, as the saying goes, "eat the house."

If these reasons may apply to you, call Jonathon and Templeton Real Estate Group. We'll work together to get you where you need to be! We have the resources and connections to get you the best experience possible.

Home Related Reasons to Sell Your Home in 2019

Short, sweet and to the point and perhaps one of the most common reasons for selling your home is that it's related to the home itself. 

  • TOO SMALL! - When you're buying your first home, were you thinking about how you'd fit the three kids and two dogs into the quaint two bedroom home you and your spouse bought in your newly wed years?
  • Made a Mistake - Perhaps this home isn't what you'd thought. Maybe, you've lost that spark of pride. 
  • Location! Location! Location! - Life changes, job changes, moving to be closer to family? Homes don't move. People do. 

If any of these apply to you, call us and we would be happy to help guide you moving forward!
