If you’ve been playing around with the idea of selling your home, but you aren’t quite sure yet – you have come to the right place. If you were waiting for some sign or divine intervention, this is it! Here are 5 great reasons to sell your home in 2021.
1. It Is Too Small
I get it, you love your home. Back when you first bought it, it had everything you needed. One thing lockdown has taught us is that what was fondly referred to before as “charming” or “cosy” has been stripped down to the bare truth – your house is too small. Maybe your kids have grown and now need rooms of their own, or your in-laws have moved in to stay safe during these crazy times… whatever the reason, your need for more space will not go away in 2021. It will only get more pressing.
2. There Is Less Competition
While the rest of the world gets used to our new version of normal, you can take advantage of this great time to sell. There is a lot less competition at the moment but there is still a great demand for homes. Get the best of both worlds by getting help from the pros who advertise “we buy houses for cash” – these folks will give you a solid offer on your home in no time at all.
3. There Are Fewer Time Wasters
The best part of selling your home during a pandemic is that you won’t have to deal with the time wasters who are only there to be nosy, or for the free cookies. The people who show an interest in your home now are, more than likely, the serious buyers who are actually really looking to buy a house. Let’s face it, now isn’t the best time to be wandering around people’s homes for no reason. If you list virtually then you won’t even have to deal with strangers roaming through your home at all.
4. There Is A New Generation Of Buyers
2021 will bring a whole new generation of buyers into the market, Millennials are looking to settle down and start a family so your starter home could be the perfect place for them to do that. If you have properly maintained your home over the years then you’ll have an easy sale on your hands – which should be music to your ears!
5. You Are Relocating
This has been a hectic year, and for many of us that has meant a career change or a transfer. If you’ve been transferred then you will need to look at listing your current home so you can buy a new one for the next chapter of your life. For many of us, 2020 has taught us what is truly important to us. For some of us, this has meant considering relocation to be closer to our families. Whatever your reason for moving is, make 2021 your year for starting a new chapter in a new place. Put your house on the market now so you can sell in early in the New Year, which gives you plenty time to start fresh somewhere wonderful and new.
