Thinking of Moving This Year?

Tags: Buying, Selling, Investing, When to Contact a Realtor

Is this the year you are planning to buy your first house?  Are you ready to move from your starter home to your dream house?  Or, is it time to upsize or downsize?  Maybe you are looking for your first investment property?  Regardless of the move you are planning to make, it can be a daunting task. 

Where do you start?  We live in the information age and there is no shortage of online resources.   The only trouble with that, is that every situation is unique and chances are you won’t find the answers to every question you have or that covers all of the issues you may encounter.  Your best bet is to find an experienced Realtor that you can trust and let them guide you through the entire process.

When should I contact a Realtor?  The answer is simple.  It is never too early to reach out to a Realtor.   Not sure how much you can afford or what you qualify to buy?  Realtors are connected and can help direct you to a good mortgage provider.  Are you searching endlessly through all the homes online?  You don’t need to wait until you find the perfect property online…a Realtor can help you find what you’re are looking for.   Are you waiting to sell until you are done a bunch of renovations on your home?  A Realtor can help advise you on the features and upgrades that are most important to help you get the most money when you sell.

An experienced and trusted Realtor can be a great resource when making plans.  The value of a Realtor goes well beyond a sign on the lawn, showing you homes or writing up an offer.  Reach out and have a long talk with a Realtor and make your plans happen this year.
