The decision to buy and sell can be painful and stressful. But it doesn’t have to be!

When you decide it’s time to sell your home and buy a new one, your mortgage lender can let you know if you have to sell you current home before you can purchase a new home. These contingency contracts aren’t that unusual, especially in today’s market.

Having a seasoned Realtor on your team can help make this process so much easier.

When you start packing up your home and making it shiny on the inside and outside, don’t just stuff everything into the garage. Many buyers want to see the garage to make sure their vehicles, tools, and outdoor equipment will fit. Having your boxes and things in the garage will change the way that space is seen.

This is also a great time to get rid of things you don’t like or don’t use anymore. It will not only save you time, but it will also save you energy from having to cart all that unnecessary stuff to a new location.
