A house you purchased at one point in your life may not be the right house for you today. Changes happen – it’s part of life. The good news is that you don’t have to hold onto your house forever if you don’t want to! Learn about the easiest way to sell your Hawaii house in our latest post!
There are a number of reasons people decide to sell their homes. For some properties and situations listing with a Hawaii real estate agent makes the most sense. For others, a direct sale offers the speed, price, and convenience a homeowner may need. Below are some signs that its time for you to sell your house in Hawaii!
It’s Too Big
Maybe you bought a house 30 years ago that was plenty big enough for you and your growing family. Today, however, you’re an empty nester — the kids have moved out and you are left living in a house that is way too big for your current needs. While you may have many memories in the house, it can become difficult to keep up with the maintenance. By selling your property, you’ll be able to find the perfect home for your present needs, while opening the doors of your old house to a new family, ready to make memories of their own.
It’s Too Small
Maybe you bought a house a few years back, however, your family is growing and you’re going to need more space. While you may be comfortable today, your kids will only want to share a room for so long. You might also enjoy having a guest bedroom, 2 car garage, office, or exercise area… things you hadn’t prioritized so highly in the past. You don’t have to feel cramped or obligated to the house. By selling directly to Oahu Home Buyers you can sell fast without any cost or effort.
For many properties, the repairs can really pile up over time. To get the property in the condition you’d like will take more time and money than you’d like to spend. You don’t have to feel obligated to fix it up or feel stuck living in it forever. A direct sale to Oahu Home Buyers will let you sell your house exactly as it stands today! Listing a house in poor condition can end up costing a fortune upfront.
You’ll Make a Tremendous Profit
Did your neighbor just make a fortune selling their house? If this is the case, it might be time to test the waters by putting your house on the market too. Potential buyers will be looking at recent sales in the area and seeing the price of the recent sale down the street can easily boost the comps for your property. Even if you had planned on living in the house forever, for the right price, a move might be well worth it.
You’re Ready For A New Neighborhood
Once upon a time, you loved living in a walkable neighborhood with many shops and restaurants nearby. However, now you are looking for something a bit quieter, without the noise, foot traffic, and parking issues. Sometimes what we want and need in a neighborhood can change over time. Or maybe your neighbors and neighborhood have changed, no longer giving you the vibe you once loved so much.
You’re Looking For Better Schools
People will often buy a house without giving much thought to the school district. But as you start a family and your kids get older, you develop a greater interest in the education of your children or future children. School ratings are used by home buyers both with and without kids. Great schools will typically lead to a better neighborhood overall. If you need to sell in a specific amount of time to ensure your children start off the school year in their new home, a direct sale can be the best option!
You’re Dreaming Of Something Else
Maybe you have always wanted to buy a house out in the country. Or a house along the beach. Or maybe you want to relocate to the heart of town. If there isn’t anything holding you back, selling your house will allow you to make your move. Ask yourself, if not now, when? Sometimes we become so comfortable in our living situation that we forget there are other places and ways to live! Trying something new can be exciting and beneficial for you in many ways.
You’ve Lived There Long Enough
Maybe you have been ready to move out since day one but hesitated because of the loss you’d likely take. According to many experts, you will need to live in the house for at least 5 years before you can really turn a profit on the sale. Buying a house can be expensive when you consider the down payment, loan origination fees, and repairs. You need to account for what you have spent on the property when you are calculating how much you are really making when you decide to sell.
