Many people encounter some hesitation when they are first thinking about selling their home. If you’re on the fence, consider these signs it might be time to sell your home in Prairie Village.
6 Signs It Might Be Time to Sell Your Home in Prairie Village
1. You Need More or Less Space!
Whether you’ve added family members or simply added more stuff, if you are feeling cramped, it’s time to move on. As you family grows, you will inevitably need more space. Not just for people, but for all that additional stuff! Or maybe you are working from home, and really need that office to be successful. Have you always wanted a man (or woman) cave but have never had space? Whatever your reason, if you are stifled in your own home, and adding an addition isn’t feasible, it is time to go!
It also may be the case that you just have too much space. They are rattling around in a house that is way too big. They often don’t have the time or the money to keep the home in good repair.
2. Your Community Has Changed
When you moved in, it was a quiet neighborhood with only a few families. But now, there are major roads running through, a coffee shop on the corner and people and traffic everywhere! Maybe crime rates have risen, or the addition of modern homes has affected your property taxes. Do you live somewhere with a rigid HOA? If you don’t LOVE the neighborhood you live in, you might want to think about relocating to a location you will love!
3. You Can’t Stand The Weather
Do you find yourself always complaining about the heat and humidity? Or maybe that you are still getting snow in May and you are sick and tired of it! Nobody should live in a place where they are unhappy. Stop wasting time living in a climate that you aren’t suited for. Now it the time to sell, and relocate to a place where you can enjoy the weather year round!
We have many sellers who have been snowbirds for a while and just decide that maintaining two homes or event three homes is too much and want to sell the home left behind. Or they are just going to retire someone they like better and the home left behind has got to go.
5. You Are Spending More Time Commuting Than With Your Family
Spending time with your friends and family is so important in maintaining your happiness. Commute times are longer than ever and people are spending hours a day in their vehicle or on public transport. In the long run, missing out on quality time, and feeling stress to get home before the kids fall asleep, aren’t the kind of memories most people want to make. Moving closer to your job will save you time, money and lower your stress levels!
5. You Are Tired of Managing Rental Properties
We often have sellers who have properties other than the home that they live in that they hold for rental income. Some people are great with managing rentals, and other just can’t cut it as a landlord. Those that can’t take another tenant problem in their rentals give us a call to come take away their problems. We also get calls from sellers who have been very good rental property owners, but are ready to retire and want to get rid of the rentals so they don’t leave a mess for heirs who do not want or do not know how to deal with the properties.
