Today’s Question: How Do I Buy If I Have a House to Sell?

Here’s how to buy and sell in this market.

How do you buy a home if you have a home to sell as well?

In this situation, there are two main hurdles to jump. The first is finding your new home. The second is making both transactions work once you do find your new home. Jumping both hurdles involves different strategies.

To find your new home, you first have to be clear about what you want. That’s when we real estate agents need to determine how often we see a home like that come to market. Is it every 30 days?

That can be a challenge in our market. Home prices right now are higher than I’ve ever seen them, and interest rates are low. 

Most of us have to weigh two things in this circumstance:

Your Cartersville 2021 Real Estate Forecast

Here are my main predictions for what’s coming for our market in 2021.

Looking back at 2020, who would have thought our houses would become this crucial to us? Last year we worked from home, schooled our kids at home, and our houses became the best restaurants (at least for safety reasons). We even learned to cook better! (At least… I tried).

Purchasing a home of their own is the dream of most Americans, and it is important to have the necessary information when they finally are ready to begin searching for the right property.

The first step will be to contact realtors who are familiar with the area where the prospective buyer wishes to live. During the initial meeting with an agent, the client should not be afraid to ask questions. It is important that the agent is familiar with neighborhoods within the area, the schools, and whether...
