A Guide To Comfortably Selling Your Home NOW! Last May, in a simikar article, I predicted the unprecedented migration towns between Mystic and Branford would experience due to the pandemic and social distancing, Social unrest in large cities like New York further fueled that trend. Not since 2007 have we experienced such a num up in demand and subsequent home values. Prior to the pandemic more people were leaving our state than entering it. The pandemic reversed our state's economic, and specifically, real estate, fortunes beyond anyone's imagination. But, how long will this trend last? Just about every agent I know is posting how Now is the Time To Sell!' on Facebook and other social media venues. True, it is. But what most are blind to is the quandary many potential home SELLERS face in regards to "But where will I go?" There are at least three approaches one can take if interested in taking advantage of this sellers market even if you have not located your next home. This is important. 1. Sell today and rent elsewhere for a year or more. There is nothing better than selling high and buying low. The market will eventually cool off and you will have a better selection of homes to choose from. But rentals are at a premium... 2. List Your Home With a "Suitable Housing Clause" in the Listing Agreement. Basically, this states that you are willing to accept an offer on your home but not be required to close until you find the perfect spot to transition to. Be sensitive to the fact, though, that most buyers won't want to wait more than 6-9 months to close. 3. Agree to Sell Your Home with an Agreement to "Rent it Back" for a period of time. A year is probably the most you'll be able to negotiate. But you never know. As always, I'm around to discuss your real estate needs and offer numerous strategies to take advantage of this exciting market! John A.
