ARE YOU - Ready, Set, to Sell?

  1. Are homes in your neighborhood selling quickly?

  2. Have home values in your area shown consistent growth?

  3. Do you need extra space to accommodate your growing family?

  4. Have you given up on home or yard maintenance because you just don’t have the time to keep it up?

  5. Do you find yourself with way more space than you need now that the kids have moved out?

  6. Is your home worth more than you owe on it?

  7. Are you ready to put in the work to get your home ready for house hunters even if it means packing up family photos and personal belongings?

  8. Are you committed to keeping your home ready to show for weeks or months?

  9. Are you ready to hear the reasons why potential buyers believe your home is not perfect?

  10. Are you ready for honest—and sometimes hardball—negotiations over what buyers are willing to pay for your home?

  11. Are you really ready to move out and leave the place where your family has made memories?

  12. Can you cash flow the prep work needed to get your home ready for the market?

  13. Do you have enough money to cover moving costs?

  14. Can you afford to buy a new home?

    a. Are you free of any nonmortgage debt?
    b. Have you saved three to six months of expenses in an emergency fund?
    c. Do you have enough cash to put at least 10–20% down on your next home?
