This House 𝙪𝙨𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 Be 𝙋𝙀𝙍𝙁𝙀𝘾𝙏! 🏡 But now, it’s 🆃🅾🆃🅰🅻🅻🆈 🅲🆁🅰🅼🅿🅴🅳 ! 👼🏽 Maybe you’ve added another family member? 🗂 📚 Or maybe the home/schoolhouse/office in one isn’t working? 𝐒𝐨, 𝐝𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐥 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐫 𝐛𝐮𝐲 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭? Sometimes, you 𝓱𝓪𝓿𝓮 𝓽𝓸 sell before you buy… 📈 but, in this competitive housing market, how do you navigate it?
You’re feeling cramped in the home. that was once perfect. Whether you’re having another baby or an older child is moving back home or maybe even a parent or other family member is joining the ranks.
Or maybe the living space is fine, but with the way things are these days, you’re working from home and the kids need space to do their online classes and homework.
Hi, I’m Jennifer Prestwich, the Prestwich Group at Madison Company Properties, and I’ve been selling real estate for 13 years in Adams and Broomfield counties, Colorado.
Setting up work in the dining room or family room can be a hassle and often these spaces have too many distractions. Over the last year, it has become apparent that you just need more space, a bigger house with a dedicated office, and maybe even another flex room for learning and earning space.
The catch is, you’re not alone. Lots of people are in the same situation, looking for the same things and inventory is low. That is a great thing when it comes to selling your house, but what about finding a new one that meets your needs better?
Navigating a busy sellers’ market with low inventory can be a real challenge. How do you coordinate selling and buying at the same time? Should you list first or find a new house first? I’ve been helping clients sell and buy homes for 13 years now and I have helped many clients navigate successful transactions like this.
In a sellers’ market, sellers often won’t accept any contingencies, especially if your current home isn’t even listed yet. There are some great options for you as a seller though.
One is a seller lease back. This means that you can stay in house after closing for a negotiated amount of time, so you can find your new house and close on it. Another option is to extend the escrow or under contract period, meaning you close in 60 days instead of 30 to give you a little more time on your buying side. These ideas can also be helpful when you’re strategizing the offer you make on your new house.
If you’re thinking of buying and selling in Adams and Broomfield counties, I would love to assist you. I’m Jennifer Prestwich, the Prestwich Group at Madison & Company Properties and I’m always here to help. Remember life is too short not to love where you live.
