With Real Estate Markets Rebounding Is This A Good Time To Sell?

Posted on Saturday, January 04, 2014




Should you be selling your place in Naples right now? This is a question we often get from our friends and clients so we thought we would take a moment and share a few thoughts on this.

For most of us property ownership is about living, not investing.  So, if you like your place stay with it and enjoy life. Too often we have seen sellers cash out, then go out on the search for something better. Just be careful what you wish for.  Hah! Betcha thought a couple of Realtors would advocate selling.  Gotcha.

Secondly, know where you are going next. Sounds obvious but sometimes forgotten. When you sell your place – actually your home – and go looking in a market of short inventories you may not like what you see. If you are headed back up north or off to a place you know is right then OK maybe go for it.. But don’t just sell because the market is back.

Prices may rise further. Hmmm. Here is something to consider. Who knows where prices will go next year but best guesses look like a another increase. Get with the Naples Best Addresses team to look at trends for your particular property – type, location, condition all really matter and prices will differ.

Where does that leave a potential seller? Understand what problem you are solving for. Don’t just sell for selling sake. We are forecasting a modest price rise (see – with some disclaimers – so unless you have somewhere to go you might hold on for a while.

But, and it is a big but, all real estate is local. So before you just hold on be sure you get with us and look at your particular property. Results will differ by individual property so just don’t go with the general “hold for now” advice until you understand your particular position.

Call us the Naples Best Addresses Team. We are ready to help you.
