Flatirons
The Outlook from Here  

The current inventory of properties on the market remains low. If you're considering selling and then buying another home, now is a good time for the initial sale. Finding a replacement property can present challenges. A couple of options to consider:


 

Buy - Sell

If a good buying opportunity arises and you have the financial wherewithal to acquire it before selling your current home, by all means move forward. Current conditions should make for a rapid sale if your home is priced right.


 

Sell - Buy

Like most buyers, you may need to sell before buying. Right now, contingency offers are not viable. To be in the best position, you need to be ready to go. With inventory so tight, buyers in the current market are willing to allow sellers to stay in their home after closing to make their offer stand out. I have had several closings this year where the buyer agreed to let the seller stay in the home for free for 2 months after closing. This gave the seller time to find a replacement property and the ability to make a strong offer without a contingency.   


 

Call me with any questions on timing strategy. I'm happy to help. 303-931-6979
