At Coldwell Banker Preferred, Realtors® in Bakersfield, we’ve worked with all types of homeowners who were looking to sell their home. Some were very excited to sell their property and move to a new one, while others were a bit hesitant about selling a house that they’d lived in for decades. Everyone’s situation is different, and we understand that it can be hard to sell a house that has so many memories tied to it. In this post, we’ll look at some things that can help you decide if you’re ready to sell, and when you are, we’ll be here to work with you every step of the way!

You’ve Found a New Job

Landing your dream job can be life-changing, but any shift in career can bring transitions. If you’re thinking about selling your home in order to be closer to work, then there are a few things to consider. Will it be more cost-effective to live closer to your job, or will you pay more for a new home than what you’re paying now? Are there suitable real estate options near your new job, or will you be forced to downsize or settle for a smaller home? When considering selling due to a career change, it’s good to ask these questions, simply to weigh all of the options of moving, commuting, and all of the other factors involved in the decision.

You’re Set on Moving

Perhaps you’ve lived in the same area of Bakersfield for several years, and you’re ready to live in a different part of the city. You’re set on moving, but you’re not quite sure if you’re ready to sell your house. There might be updates that you want to make before you put it on the market, or you might want to work with a Realtor on staging your home so that it looks its very best to potential buyers. At Coldwell Banker, we can provide the assistance you need to attract the perfect buyer for your property.

You’re Ready for Something New

If you’ve lived in your house for some time, then you’ve likely made a lot of memories there. However, that doesn’t mean that you planned on living there forever, and maybe you’re ready for something new. Your family is growing and changing, and you might need a new house so that you have plenty of space for everyone. If you’re approaching retirement age, then you might be ready for a new adventure, part of which involves selling your current home and buying a new one in a different part of the city.
