Don’t Get Stuck Paying for Two Homes at Once

When you are selling a home and buying a home simultaneously, it’s easy to get stuck with two homes at once. The last thing you want to do is pay for two homes at the same time!

With Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty of Ontario we guarantee that we will find you the perfect home for your price in your timeframe. 

Consider How Long You’ll Stay in the House

Consider whether this new home will be your forever home, or if you are just planning on staying for 5, 10, or 15 years.

What will you need in your home 5 years from now? 10 years from now? 15 years from now? 30 years from now?

If the home is going to be your forever home, you may want to consider things like whether at an older age you can navigate stairways safely. Have young children? Consider how much additional space they will need as they grow up.

You want to make sure your house will be perfect for you no matter how long you stay!

Get Your Current Home Ready for Showings

One important part of moving up is making sure your current home sells fast and for top dollar. There are some simple ways you can get your home ready for showings:

  • Complete all repairs
  • Consider a fresh coat of paint in neutral colors
  • Don’t ignore curb appeal
  • Declutter your home
  • Remove personal effects like photographs

Remember that most buyers make a home choice based on emotion. You want to make sure your home is free of clutter, warm, and inviting. The potential homebuyers should be able to envision themselves in your home.
