Should you buy or sell first?

The answer is dependent on what kind of property you currently live in and where it is.
It is important to take into consideration demand in your area and comparable property sales times.
You will want to know your finances and if you can carry two properties should it take longer to sell than expected.
The value of your home is dependent on the market and what buyers think it is worth. Your realtor and broker can help you decide where you should buy or sell first.

How big a move-up should you make?

Selling and buying are expensive and come with many fees. If you are going to make a move – make it count.
If you need more space but don’t have much budget perhaps a different neighbourhood can accommodate.
It is important to think about your short and long-term goals and what your lifestyle needs will be and become.
Knowing what type of homeowner you are and want to be is crucial for success. Do you enjoy upkeep and maintenance and will you be able to handle the time requirements and cost of a bigger yard and house?

What do you need to do now to be ready to sell your current home?

If you start to prepare your current home now, you will be ready to jump on the perfect move-up opportunity.
How can you maximize your investment in your property now to get the optimal ROI?
Do you have a realtor who is able to give you advice on what changes should be made and what the market wants?
Are you clear on your existing mortgage and the penalties that might be incurred?

We help move up buyers all the time and can help you answer all of these questions.

“When we found a house, we started the process and due to situations that arose, we had to change the closing date. The team very quickly organized all the changes and did a great job. Pilot helped us become home owners.”
