Deciding to move up, move out or move onto a new phase of life brings up many questions that can be answered by an expert agent who can advise on strategies for making the most of today’s market.

One agent from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty recently met with clients considering a move to a smaller, lock-and-leave home that would allow them to travel easily during their post parenting years. After assessing the cost of utilities, taxes, insurance, maintenance and more for their aging home, the couple determined that a new home in a zero-lot line neighborhood would be a better investment and free up assets that could be used for travel and adventure.

Another agent worked with a family to outline a two-year plan to sell their current home and lease in one of Downtown’s beautiful high-rise homes. The family wanted to sell during a strong market and have the flexibility to take advantage of an upcoming relocation opportunity. They’re truly enjoying the move to urban living.

Although homes sales usually slow during summer, the strong market is continuing, with serious buyers looking for well-maintained, well-priced homes that they can move into by the start of the new school year. Now is a great time to consult with a professional agent who understands the value of the right home for your phase of life.
