Are you looking to upgrade your lifestyle?
I'm Melanie Giray with the Hamre Real Estate Team and RE/MAX Affiliates in Ottawa.
Yesterday I met with some clients of mine. They're looking at upsize, they're looking for a little bit more space. Their family's growing. So we had a conversation and looked at the options to see how this might be feasible for them.
They purchased pre pandemic, the home they're currently living in. They have a lot of equity in their home. Now, first things first, it's critical that they get in touch with their mortgage broker.
I want them to know everything that they may be able to expect from the financial side of the transaction.
We want to look and say okay, after expenses, after closing costs, what are the net proceeds from the sale of the home gonna be?
We also wanna look at different scenarios. For example:
If their home were to sell it at 'X $ amount' - What would their buy price be?
Okay, wonderful. Now that's scenario number one.
Now what if their home sells at this new 'X $ amount? - What does their buy price now become?
I want them to have a clear picture of what they can expect and how the outcomes vary. Based on different circumstances that may play out. Then we came up with a plan.
These clients, they're looking for a unique product, so we determined that for them, the best course of action would be to get their home ready to list.
Get the staging done, pictures taken, the video done, so have it ready to go. That way when they find exactly what they're looking for, they're ready to pounce off in it and put in an offer, and we can get their home on the market.
Now with a buy sell real estate transaction, there's many pieces to the puzzle and we are here to ensure that the transaction runs smoothly.
We're here to control any and all variables that can be managed. So, if you have any questions, you want to chat Real Estate, please feel free to reach out.
