3. It is a Sizzling Seller's Market
You've heard the stories: multiple offers, sales above asking price, buyers purchasing homes sight unseen. Guess what? They're all true. Nobody could have imagined a 30-year fixed rate below 3% - until now. Rates haven't been this low since 1972. We are experiencing significant migration from the NYC/PHL/DC metro areas to Northeastern Pennsylvania. It is so prevalent that the industry gurus have given it a name: resuburbanization (think post WWII's flight to the 'burbs – revisited). It is happening. Here. Now. Take advantage of it now because it won't last forever.
4. You're Over-improving for Your Neighborhood
Considering an addition that would make your home the largest on the block? Reconsider. Gutting every room in the house? Let's think about this project a little more.
Do you know that appraisers value most major home improvement jobs at less than ½ the cost? Invest your money wisely. You could save time, aggravation, and money by finding another home.
5. You're Emotionally Ready to Sell.
You have Zillow bookmarked, done all your homework, and have discussed it ad nauseum. Ran the numbers, been to Lowe's a dozen times in the last month, and made numerous calls to contractors that never called you back.
