The market has shifted over the past few months and while mortgage rates have ticked higher than they’ve been over the last year, increases have slowed, and Lake Martin homebuyers are still eager to make a move. Now is prime time for Alabama home sellers to take the necessary steps and list while motivated homebuyers are out and about.

You’ve outgrown your home
Many homebuyers in today’s real estate market are ready to buy a new home simply due to lack of space. It’s also another popular reason for homeowners to move on! Do you seem to have no room left in the closet? Is your family expanding? Do you have nowhere for guests to sleep when they come to visit? Upgrading to a larger home may be just what you need!
You’ve regained equity
Not every homeowner on Lake Martin may be able to say they have regained equity, but things have been proceeding in a positive direction. If you’ve regained equity in your home, you’re in a great position to move. If you’re not sure, you can always have your home re-appraised to determine if selling is the best idea for you right now.
