Sell and Downsize in Washington Metro DC Area

Are you tired of living large? Downsizing can be the best possible option for home owners who are tired of the upkeep of living in a big home. Paying utility bills for the space they don't use, keeping up with the costly interior and exterior maintenance as well as taking care of the lawn can become a hassle for years to come.

Like moving-up, downsizing needs a two-step process while timing is the most important factor for a painless transition.

Priorities should be identified and taken care of one by one. Preparing your existing home to list should be the first step before any home hunting takes place. Similar to moving up, downsizing often requires sellers to sell their current home in order to buy a new one. Therefore, as soon as your home is ready to be listed, you can put it for sale to make a quick move.

For the most valuable asset of your life, you need to work with an expert real estate agent who will provide you the current value of your home, enable a smooth transition by getting you the highest possible price and finding the best home for your needs. 

Determining your timeline will also impact my marketing strategy as well as  the list price and conditions in the contract. One of the most challenging things is to be able to fit the current furniture into the new home. It often seems unlikely and therefore, it would be better to sort out and give up some of the big furniture before the big day. These steps will help you achieve your goals with downsizing, acquiring a home for your needs.

Teaming up with an expert real estate agent will benefit you by making sure that you are getting the highest possible price with the least amount of hassles.

Once you get things rolling with your lender and share your home buying budget with your realtor, you will be presented options to choose from. Don't forget to ask your realtor for a referral if you are going to relocate.
