So, you feel like it’s time to move, but you keep asking yourself, Should I really sell my house? After all, there’s so much history packed inside those four walls - not to mention all your stuff. Your house is the most valuable possession you own in more ways than one.


There’s a lot of uncertainty out there in the housing market, and the news sure isn’t helping. You probably have questions about whether you should sell your house now or wait another year or longer.


To determine if you should sell your home, consider life circumstances, but also your financial situation like the amount of equity you have in your home, your ability to afford a new home, and all of the costs of selling. You’ll also want to understand the local housing market and how seasonal trends can impact your goals.


If you’re wondering “Should I sell my home?” here are some important questions to ask:

  1. How much is my home worth?
  2. Do I have enough equity to sell my home?
  3. How much will it cost to sell my home?
  4. How long will it take to sell my home?
  5. Should I make repairs?
  6. How should I sell my home?


The fact that you’re asking questions is a good thing. You’re thinking about your situation rather than giving into the confusion out there. No matter what, selling your home is a big decision. After all, selling at the right time can be a boost to your finances and your lifestyle. While selling at the wrong time can cause trouble for years to come.
