Are YOU Falling out of Love with YOUR Wisconsin Home? It May Be Time To Move.

When you own a home, you and your family have a place that is all yours and has the room, features, and location you need. But what happens when you have different needs? If this sounds like you, it might be time to move on.


According to the National Association of Realtors' (NAR) latest Home Buyers and Sellers Generational Trends Report, the average person has stayed in their current home for ten years. Think about how much your life has changed since you moved into your home if you've been there for a while. Even if you bought it thinking it would be your forever home, you don't have to stay there forever. Work with a local real estate agent to look at all of your choices in the current market before deciding on a home.


Right now, a lot of people who own their own homes are doing just that. A recent poll by Realtor.com shows that one in three people who are thinking about selling their home in 2023 are doing so because it no longer meets their needs. The same NAR study says that this is in line with this year's top reasons for selling, which are:


Wanting to live closer to family or friends
Moving due to retirement
Too small or too big of a home
Family life has changed
Moving for a job

If things have changed in your life, it may be time to move. The good news is that it's still a good time to sell. This is why.


We're in a strong seller's market. That means that buyers are interested in homes that are priced at market value and are in good shape, so they sell quickly. Talk to your real estate agent for the best help on how to get your home ready to sell.


Your wealth can help you move to the next step. There's a good chance that you have a lot of wealth right now because prices have gone up at record rates in recent years. When you sell your home, you can use the money from the sale to help pay for your next house. In fact, the above NAR study shows that 38% of recent buyers used the money from the sale of their previous home to pay for the down payment on their next home. Talk to a real estate agent in your area to find out how much equity you have and what you can do with it in the current home market.
