Three Big Benefits Of Selling Before Buying

A common concern amongst many of our clients keeps popping up at the moment and that is...

"If we sell in this market, where will we go"?

We hear you! It can be a daunting decision to make. 
⁠⁠Especially, if you are relying on the sale of your current property in order to purchase the next one. So, here are three considerations for you to think about and reasons why we believe the benefits of selling, before you find somewhere, might just be the way to go for you;

The market is moving quickly. So if you haven't listed with an agent and you put a 'subject to sale' clause in the offer you make, you could be at a serious disadvantage to other buyers who are already steps ahead of you. 

Buying before you sell means you will be time pressured and may be forced to take a sub-optimal price on your home, just to get the deal done so you can meet your commitments on your purchase contract 

There are ways you can make selling before you buy easier for yourself. For example: You can ask the buyer of your property for a 90 day contract. This gives you 3 months to find something! Or sometimes if it suits the buyers circumstances you can organise a rent back period where you stay in your current home for a period of time while you hunt for your next dream home.
