8 Questions Every Move-Up Wake County Home Buyer Should Ask

Selling Before You Buy That Move Up

When people have outgrown their present Wake County home and need a larger one, there are many moving parts to selling and buying at the same time and a lot of unknowns which cause great stress for homeowners.

Timing a sale and purchase within a desired budget has many pieces of the puzzle to put together for a smooth and joyful move.  In this type of move, the difference between success and disaster is experience, knowledge and executing a well thought out plan.

To begin this plan start by gathering critical information.  Here are questions that every move-up buyer needs to ask:.

  • How much will my present home sell for?
  • What will I realistically net from my sale, which I can use for the new purchase?
  • What do I need to do to my home to prepare it to sell for the highest price and what will this cost?
  • How long will it take to sell my present home?
  • How much money will a mortgage lender loan me for the purchase of my move-up home?
  • What are all the costs associated with selling, buying and moving?
  • How will I time the sale of one home, the purchase of a new home and the move?
  • Is there a move-up home for sale now that will meet my family’s needs?
