5 Ways to Prepare to Buy or Sell Later

 
Summer is usually the perfect time to buy or sell a home. And for some people, it still is. After all, there are few things more welcoming than warm weather and fresh flowers blooming in the front yard.
 
But maybe you’re waiting to enter the market. That’s okay too. There are plenty of ways you can use this time to your advantage.
 
If you’re considering buying or selling later this year or next, here are five things you can do in the meantime.
 

Get Your Finances in Order

 
Take stock of your accounts, assets and debts, and pull your free credit report. Make sure you’re in good standing to qualify for a loan and make a down payment.
 

Watch the Market

 
Keep an eye on local home sales where you’re considering buying. This can give you an idea of what you might spend on a home — or how you should price yours when you list it.
 

Save Up for Moving Expenses

 
Moving isn’t cheap — especially if you’re going a far distance. Start saving for your movers, trucks, packing supplies and more.
 

Talk to a Mortgage Lender

 
Start zeroing in on which lender you might want to go with, and make sure you understand the requirements you’ll need to meet to get a loan. You may also want to get preapproved before beginning your home search.
 

Prioritize Your Needs

 
If spending more time at home has made you reconsider your living space, take the time to figure out exactly what you’re looking for in a new home. Then we can discuss your options together.
