If you have started to consider the option of selling your home it is always wise to sit down and start to clarify your current situation. You can start this process with the two most frequent topics that get brought up with individuals and families looking to sell their existing home.
Employment related: a job transfer, loss of employment, retirement etc.
Family related: moving closer to family; downsizing to a smaller residence now that family members have moved on; upsizing to accommodate a growing family; combining households etc.
Lifestyle related: Moving to a golf course community; seeking a retirement community; relocating to the beach or the desert or the mountains; Changing from a condominium to a house or vice versa etc.
Whatever the motivation, it is essential for you to be fully prepared both emotionally and financially prior to making any decisions.
Once you have a clear and precise picture and answer for those two questions it is time to begin the selling process. The selling process is fairly unique and requires three main stages in order to properly sell your house at the highest price possible.
