What Should You Do First: Buy or Sell?

“What should you do first – sell your house or buy your next one?”

If you already own a home, you’re probably struggling with this basic question: what do I do first, buy the home that I want or sell my existing home? And the answer is as individual as you are. Generally, most real estate professionals would advise you to list your present home and shop for your new home simultaneously. However, depending on the market and/or your individual needs, you may want to consider an alternative. In a very robust real estate market, a home could sell within a few days of listing. So if you have very specific criteria for your new home with regard to location, size, views, age, etc., in a competitive market you may want to begin searching for and buying that home first before you sell your existing home. Your American Trust Realty LLC sales associate will discuss with you fully your individual needs and circumstances to help you find the right solution.
