Carrie Fitts Real Estate Tips: How to Determine the Best Time to Sell Your Home

Financial and real estate experts suggest considering several factors:

  1. Do you have equity in your existing home that will be returned with the sale?
  2. Does your home no longer fit your lifestyle and you need to consider up-sizing? Now is an ideal time to take advantage of historically low mortgage interest rates.
  3. Or is down-sizing the right fit to maximize financial resources and expand other investment or travel opportunities?
  4. Have you experienced financial changes
  • and are in a better position to take advantage of the historically low financing options
  • or in need of the cash from the equity of your home to reduce expenses or invest in a new business opportunity?

“August’s 2.3 months of supply [homes for sale] is well below the five-year average of 4.6 months. Tuscaloosa’s inventory-to-sales ratio is 3.7 months below equilibrium, indicating a continued transition where sellers typically have slightly elevated bargaining power.”
