"Non-Market” Reasons Why it Might Be the Ideal Time to Sell

When considering whether or not to sell their home, many people think about

market conditions. They consider whether it’s a buyer’s or seller’s market.

They look at trends. They try to time the sale to get the best price for

their property.

While market conditions certainly can play a role in deciding whether you

should sell now rather than later, many other factors can influence that

decision too.

For example, you might have outgrown your home and need more space.

Perhaps you need an extra bedroom or a larger kitchen. If you wait until

market conditions are perfect, you may languish for months — or even years

— in a home that’s too small for you.

The same can be said for downsizing.

Another “non-market” reason you might want to sell your home sooner rather

than later is the neighbourhood. Is there another community more suited to

your lifestyle that you want to get into? If it’s a particularly desirable area, you

don’t want to wait too long to make a move. If you do, you might lose some

good opportunities.

There’s also the emotional side of the decision to consider. You might simply

want to move for no other reason than you need a change. That’s as good a

reason as any to put up the For Sale sign and find your next dream home.

Other non-market reasons for selling include:

• Wanting a shorter commute to work.

• Desiring a different style of neighbourhood. (Rural rather than urban.)

• A change in family situation.

• Living closer to relatives and friends.

• Wanting a particular property feature, such as a backyard with

mature trees.

The point is, don’t just consider market conditions when deciding to sell. Look

at all the reasons and then move forward with confidence. After all, you can

sell and buy in any market.
