My Buyers knew from the listing photos this #Fishers home was the home for them – and they weren’t even planning on moving! This market moves fast and when you know, you KNOW. They came in aggressive in a multiple offer situation and the home is now theirs to grow into with their two young kids.

Walking the home with them and hearing them plan out where their furniture would go, which child would sleep in each bedroom, and how they plan to entertain in the home is the most amazing experience to be a part of.

Thank you to my dear friends for their trust and faith in me to assist them! ❤

After 16 years in their “first home”, my Sellers pass this completely updated one level home on to another young, newly engaged couple to enjoy and make memories. So many stories were shared around the closing table and the Sellers have closure that another family will love the home as much as they have.

What a lovely transaction from beginning to end and Sellers and Buyers are now Facebook Friends!

How Much Can You Spend on Your Next Home?

Even if you’re not thinking about selling your home, you might be wondering how much of a new home you could afford. You might see a house for sale in a nice area, and think, “Could I get into a house like that?”

Why not find out?

It only takes a few calculations to determine how much of a new home you qualify to buy. The calculation involves estimating how much you can get for your house on today’s market; determining what type of home you want and establishing what a house like that would currently sell for; and then taking into consideration your income, savings and other financial resources.

Once you put it all together, you’ll have a price range within which you can confidently shop for a new home.

This exercise might surprise you. You might find out you can afford to get into a home and neighborhood you’ve always dreamed about. It’s worth finding out and I can help you!

4 Good Reasons to Consider Selling Your Home

Why do people decide to move? 

Unless it’s a requirement, such as a job relocation, the research tells us that you, like many homeowners, may decide to sell at some point for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Your home is no longer a good fit. You may have outgrown your current home and need something bigger, maybe with an additional bedroom. Or, the opposite may be true. You may want to downsize into something smaller – and cash in some of the home equity you’ve built up.
  • You’ve got your eye on a different neighborhood. Have you ever driven through an area and thought, “I’d love to live here”? You may think that it’s out-of-reach for you at this time. Is it? You never know until you work the numbers. You might, in fact, qualify for a home in that neighborhood today!
  • You want to be closer to something. Many homeowners would love to live closer to work, family, favorite hobbies, the country, etc. Moving to a home that’s near to one of those “somethings” can have a positive impact on your lifestyle.
  • It’s time for a change. Sometimes a homeowner just wants a change: new surroundings, a fresh start. Who says you need a “practical” reason to sell? If you’re looking to get into a new home just because you feel like it, that’s your choice. In fact, that may be the best reason of all to sell. You may simply want to move.

Do any of these reasons resonate for you? If so, now is the time to start preparing. Even if you don’t anticipate moving for several months, this is the best time to get the process started.
