“Non-Market” Reasons Why it Might Be the Ideal Time to Sell!


When considering whether or not to sell their home, many people think about market conditions. They consider whether it’s a buyer’s or seller’s market. They look at trends. They try to time the sale to get the best price for their property.


While market conditions certainly can play a role in deciding whether you should sell now rather than later, many other factors can influence that decision too.


For example, you might have outgrown your home and need more space. Perhaps you need an extra bedroom or a larger kitchen. If you wait until market conditions are perfect, you may languish for months — or even years — in a home that’s too small for you. The same can be said for downsizing.


Another “non-market” reason you might want to sell your home sooner rather than later is the neighbourhood. Is there another community more suited to your lifestyle that you want to get into? If it’s a particularly desirable area, you don’t want to wait too long to make a move. If you do, you might lose some good opportunities. There’s also the emotional side of the decision to consider. You might simply want to move for no other reason than you need a change. That’s as good a reason as any to put up the For Sale sign and find your next dream home.


Other non-market reasons for selling include:

• Wanting a shorter commute to work.

• Desiring a different style of neighbourhood. (Rural rather than urban.)

• A change in family situation.

• Living closer to relatives and friends.

• Wanting a particular property feature, such as a backyard with mature trees.

• Walkability to shops, malls, parks!


The point is, don’t just consider market conditions when deciding to sell. Look at all the reasons and then move forward with confidence. After all, you can sell and buy in any market!  Thinking of buying or selling?  Give me a call!

Like most homeowners, you probably don’t think of your property as just a building with rooms and a backyard. To you, it’s much more than that. It’s a home!  When you walk into your dining room, for example, you don’t merely see the table and chairs. You see memories. You recall laughter with family and friends. It’s emotional. That’s what a home is all about.


However, buyers don’t want to buy your “home”. What they really want to buy is a property that has the potential to become their home. While you see memories of family dinners, they see room dimensions and what the dining room may look like with their furniture in it. That’s why, when you’re selling your property, you need to keep emotions at bay as much as possible.


In fact, the best mindset is to think of your property as a product. The more attractively you present that product to prospective buyers, the more likely you are to get good offers. That’s why cleaning, depersonalizing, and staging are so important. We want your home to stand out to as many buyers as possible, not just some!


It’s also why setting a price that aligns with your home’s current market value is important. You may have put your heart and soul — and many weekends — into landscaping the backyard to make it a summer oasis. It may, in fact, be a strong selling point of your property. But that improvement will only add to the selling price an amount that the market, not your emotions, dictates. So keep emotions out of the selling process as much as possible. Save that energy for turning your next property into your dream home - one that you can make your own.


Want more tips on selling your property for the best price possible? Call me!  I've been able to help many sellers with many recommendations to help them get top dollar for their homes!
