What’s holding you back? And how to move forward.
With the Yeppoon market so red hot at the moment, the question we are often asked by sellers is;
‘What happens if I sell my house but can’t find a house to buy?’
It’s understandable that you may feel a bit nervous or reluctant to sell, it is completely natural to feel this way. If you're ready to move on with the next chapter of your life but feeling a little unsure, simply look at the bigger picture. Why do you want to sell? What will this change mean for your life moving forward?
You may also find it helpful to remember it’s unlikely that you’re going to find another home to buy subject to the sale of your property, especially when the market is this red hot, so you need to be ready to buy to make the most of opportunities as they come along.
The best way to do that is by selling your home and being prepared. To make your life easier as the seller, we would suggest negotiating a longer settlement period on the sale of your home. So, when we are negotiating with a buyer for your home, we let them know that the seller wants a longer settlement period and thankfully most buyers are okay with that. Most buyers are happy to 90 days or even 120 days settlement. That gives you longer to explore your options and find a property to move into. Once your home is under contract you will be in a better the position to negotiate on your next home, as you’re going to be cashed up, organised and ready to buy.
