Need More Space?

WELCOME TO SUNDAY’S WITH SUE

If you are considering selling your home based on your family increasing in size and you need more space, there are some things that only you have to evaluate

1) Is your existing space really too small for your lifestyle
2) Have you accumulated so much stuff that IF you got rid of it,just that alone will make your decision to stay

Sometimes purging and re-staging your home can create the space that will service your family better and you don’t need to uproot everyone … this would be a good thing

3) if you have 2 bedrooms and another baby is on their way or
4) another member of your family are joining your residence

then that is an obvious decision, however, don’t let the market influence your decision on this point because you will lose your focus

FIRST AND ONLY FIRST

* Contact your Bank to find out if you Sold your home TODAY, what your mortgage payout penalty would be – get that figure in $$$$$ ONLY!

* Then ask the bank to ‘pre-approve’ you – but NOT just an over-the-phone conversation – PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE – send in your Application for a MORTGAGE based on your existing income and expenses! ..

If you need some help with this I can recommend a few Mortgage Brokers to begin this process

NO REALTOR IS WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD UNTIL …………… UNTIL THEY ASK YOU IF YOU HAVE DONE YOUR FINANCING HOMEWORK!!!!! …

It doesn’t matter WHAT you want or WHERE you want it … GET THIS FINANCIAL HOMEWORK DONE FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Realtor who has YOUR best interest FIRST .. they will insist and/or help you with this part of your decision making to sell your home and move into your next home!

To be continued next week! … until then – Keep Smiling and if needed – please call me (40-860-7400) immediately for added advice!
