Too Scared to Move?

Thinking of selling your home and upgrading into something new, but too scared to attempt selling in the current market? I hear this sentiment more and more these days, but listen up scaredy-cats because I have a theory. My theory is that you are going to even out. In most areas it is a buyers market. A buyers market is identified when there are 6 months or more of inventory on the market, or, in other words, a market with more sellers than buyers. As a seller you may have to concede more than you hoped, but you should get a great deal when you purchase a new house. So, you lose a little on the selling side, but gain a little on the buying side. Even-steven and you’ve accomplished your goal to move to that better school district, or downsize from that big, empty house, or to ditch the house in the suburbs with the long commute for a Vespa and a condo downtown.
