So many people are waiting for the market to improve before they put their homes up for sale. I call it the ‘hunker-down syndrome.’ It goes something like this…
“My house was worth (insert big number here) a few years ago and I am waiting for it to come back before I try to sell.” Meanwhile, time marches on, the kids move out, the kids have kids of their own, you have a new job, new baby, more stuff, less stuff, bad knees, want to retire, etc. and the house that was once perfect isn’t such a good fit anymore.
It is projected that, in Pierce County, it will take approximately seven to ten years for prices to return to their former heights. Seven to ten years. Meanwhile, Father time marches on. What if you had sold a few years ago—when prices were at their highest? You would have also had to purchase… when prices were at their highest. Do you really want to keep your life on hold another seven years or more while waiting for the market? If your life has changed in the last few years, or you are waiting to make a change, a decade is a long time to wait for prices to catch up to you.
Ever thought about retiring to Phoenix AZ? Ready to stay in the great NW, but want to downsize? Curious how a reverse mortgage works? Call me! Imagine NO mortgage payment AND living in your dream home. No income limits, no qualifying. It’s amazing what $130K can buy in Phoenix.
