So you have lived in your current home for many years, the kids are at university or married. Apart from the running costs like two furnaces and higher property taxes you sit down to discuss moving and getting a smaller home, maybe with less maintenance and a smaller (if any) amount of grass to cut!
It is a fact that good moving companies in the current Calgary economy are doing a lot of downsize moving. But that’s OK, you get to start a new adventure and put some equity in the bank.
But first you need to know the market value of your current property. That's the amount your home will likely sell for in today's market. And don’t run away with the idea that because the market is slow, there are no buyers. Yes buyers have more choice but if you do a good job of preparing your home to sell - sell it will.
There are lots of younger big families looking for larger homes. Yes it may take a bit big longer to sell but if you do your part by preparing it, we will do ours by doing some awesome marketing.
Take a look at the options you have when buying a smaller place. Maybe it can be a Townhouse, and attached Villa style home or just a smaller single family home. There are lots of choices out there. All you really have to do is narrow down the communities you like, and we will come up with what’s available, you could be surprised. And remember this, whilst you will list your current home to fit into the market, so will another seller be doing the same thing. With those two pieces of information, you'll be able to make a better decision.
So think positive, someone will love your home, and you will love your new one.
