Should You Sell Your Residence? Key Factors to Consider

by Rosemary Pezzano 01/21/2019

The decision to sell a home can have long-lasting ramifications. As such, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of listing a house. This will allow you to determine if now is a good time to add your residence to the housing market.

Furthermore, there are many factors to consider as you decide whether to list your residence, and these include:

1. Your Short- and Long-Term Plans

Think about what you hope to accomplish in the immediate future. If you have the flexibility to relocate from one location to another, now may prove to be a good time to list your residence.

Consider your long-term plans, too. If you find that you want to reside elsewhere sooner rather than later, you may want to consider adding your house to the real estate market in the near future.

2. Your Finances

Oftentimes, it helps to examine your current mortgage payments, as well as any other daily and monthly expenses. If you have a budget in place, you can determine if you are in a strong position to sell your home and move.

You also should consider the current state of your home – something that can have a major impact on whether you can turn a profit from a house sale. Of course, if you decide you want to list your residence, you can always upgrade your home. And by doing so, you could boost the likelihood of enjoying a profitable home selling experience.

3. Your Family and Friends

If you want to live closer to family and friends who reside many miles away from your current house, you can list your residence and plan to relocate. Then, you can pursue a new residence that provides convenient access to your family and friends.

Embarking on the home selling journey is rarely simple. But if you have a real estate agent at your side, you can receive comprehensive support as you navigate the house selling journey.

A real estate agent is happy to meet with you and learn about your residence. This housing market professional also can provide tips and recommendations so you can upgrade your residence before you list it. Plus, when you are ready to add your home to the local housing market, a real estate agent will promote your residence to potential buyers. And if you receive an offer to purchase your residence, a real estate agent can even help you make an informed decision about whether to accept, reject or counter this proposal.

If you hire a real estate agent, you can receive lots of assistance as you finalize a home sale as well. The final stages of the home selling journey sometimes can be difficult to navigate, but a real estate agent will work with you to ensure you can complete a successful home sale.

For those who are uncertain about whether to add a home to the real estate market, it generally helps to consider the aforementioned factors. If you examine these factors closely, you may be better equipped than ever before to decide whether to list your house.

  • WHO I AM…

There are many reasons why I enjoy my career as a REALTOR. The main reason is the deep satisfaction that comes from helping people realize their dreams, helping them through the major transition that accompanies selling, buying and moving. Another reason is that no transactions are the same. Each one has its own characteristics and challenges. It is through overcoming the challenges that enables me to improve my quality of service. Each and every day I work at perfecting my attention to detail and my commitment to excellence while being mindful of my core values.

Having first-hand knowledge and sharing that knowledge has contributed towards a reputation for achieving results, not just promises! Listening, delivering necessary information, helping to negotiate the best possible price and terms and making sure all details are covered help to have a successful closing. This comes from over 40 years of real estate experience.

Rosemary was a pleasure to deal with - very responsive, professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond for us. She made a very overwhelming situation of selling my parents' house into a manageable, do able process that I couldn't even fathom getting thru at the onset. The house was sold and closed in a month's time and I am still pinching myself that we got through this huge undertaking so readily. This truly is thanks to Rosemary. She is wonderful!

Rosemary was very easy to work with and gave me a lot of good advice for selling a home within Four Seasons / Allentown (some of which I should have taken sooner!). She and her husband (who is also a Realtor) were incredibly helpful with many of the small (and some not so small) details of getting our house prepped and sold. Because I lived a ways away from the house I was selling, there were many times when Rosemary or her husband were able to save me a trip to handle something at the home while it was on the market, showing that they will do whatever it takes to help make a sale go smoothly, and I greatly appreciate their help. Rosemary responded quickly to all of my questions via phone, email, or text; I never waited long to hear back from her no matter the day or time.

I am thankful I chose to have Rosemary sell my house. Through every step of the process she kept me informed, made useful suggestions and helped. Here are just four examples. Just before we put the house on the market, she made a suggestion to relocate a piece of furniture. And yes, after moving it, the room looked larger. The house was listed on a Wednesday and by noon on Friday I had a full price offer. When the new buyers suggested the landscape plantings were overgrown, she had her husband come over to trim the worse offenders. At the end of the process, after the house had been cleaned for the new owners' walk-through and because I had had to move out of the area, she and her husband put out the remaining five cans of trash. After the closing I got a call from her because some of my mail had been delivered to my just-sold house rather than having been forwarded. She offered to take it to the Post Office for forwarding and to alert them to the problem. These are just four examples of the many ways Rosemary (and her husband) helped make the difficult process of selling my house as painless and as smooth as possible. Thank you Rosemary (and husband)!!

If you are selling a house in this area, use Rosemary as your agent. She worked tirelessly to get our house sold. She was very involved, handled many, many details for us, and was extremely knowledgeable about the value of homes in the area. She even arranged for her husband to help us out in several instances. She kept me updated and led us through every step of the process, explaining what we needed to do and how things would progress. We no longer live in the area and without her, we would never have been able to handle the sale long distance. She was wonderful to work with.Less

Rosemary pays attention to details and knew exactly the type of exposure the home needed to get the job done. We had the home listed for sale 2 other times with another realtor with no results. Rosemary felt that the home needed to be professionally photographed and she was right. The photos brought in numerous buyers and the home sold in a few weeks. I would recommend Rosemary to anyone who wishes to sell their home in a timely manner for a fair price.
