Has this ever happened to you? ….. You are driving through a cute neighbourhood and, just as you turn a corner, you see the absolutely perfect home. And…you can’t believe it …. It's for sale! But, there’s a problem. Your current property isn't on the market. In fact, until this moment, you had not even considered moving.

So what do you do?

Your first step is to find out more about the listing and see if it as good as it looks from the outside. Find out the listing price. Check out the size, layout, number of bedrooms and other features. If it all looks good, schedule a viewing.

If you go to see the property and still love it, your next step is to determine if it fits within your budget. To do that, you'll need to quickly find out the Current Market Value of your home, what it will likely sell for, so you can determine how much money you'll have available after your outstanding mortgage and any other costs are deducted.

Next, you'll need to make an offer on the new home. Depending on the competitiveness of the neighborhood and current Market conditions you might need to list your home first but in today’s Market there are many Seller’s that are willing to give you the time you need to Sell your Home First in order to purchase theirs.  

There are a lot of steps to take in a short amount of time but with the right information and a little guidance the process is quick, easy and FUN!

So next time you see that dream house …. Take the first step… find out more.  You could be living in your Forever Home before you know it!
