Is now the Right Time to Sell?
People sell homes for a variety of reasons. We are in a Buyers’ Market and if you don’t need to sell for the next 7 to 10 years it may be worth the wait. However, if you do not have the luxury of time you need to ask the right questions and make informed decisions. Here are a couple of good questions to get you on the right track.
1. What kind of property do you have (style, size, bedrooms, amenities, etc.) and how does it compare to other “like-kind” properties in the market that have sold, are under contract and have not sold in the last 12 months.
2. How has your waterfront community preformed over the last 2 years when compared to other competing waterfront communities that offer similar lifestyles?
3. How do your taxes and association fees affect your chances of sale?
4. What gives you property a competitive advantage in the market place?
5. Do you really know how your property compares to other “like-kind” properties in communities like Stonington Borough, Lords Point, Masons Island, Giants Neck, Black Point, Middle Beach and other competing areas.
Understanding the competitive landscape is an important part of making informed choices. Generalized information and false assumptions often lead to misinformation and bad decisions. Good information (that can be sourced and verified) often leads to make the right decision, even under difficult circumstances.
