If you live in the Bay Area, you should have some inkling that the Seller‘s Market is not as good as it has been the past 3-4 years. However, there can be loads of reasons for selling:
-Making the big bucks’ as long as you don’t buy something that costs ‘big bucks.’
-You can’t wait until the neighbors make the big bucks…you need to stay ahead of them. Be a leader, not a follower, but make wise decisions.
-Outgrown the house? Sure… but it may be worthwhile to think ahead a few years…will you grow back into it? Would putting an addition help to add space? How about an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) that you can rent out?
-Feeling financially stressed? Maybe talk to your accountant or financial advisor BEFORE you sign on the dotted line to list that property. There are numerous things to consider…and speak to a Realtor that knows what’s going on in the ‘hood, and hopefully you can trust.
-Outta there due to deferred maintenance? Maybe take it one step at a time…get a pest and property inspection done…and prioritize those findings.
