How can I finance my second home?
This is obviously complicated. Are you going to leverage equity? Does your income stretch to two mortgages? Do you need to sell your existing home to finance another one? Consult a lender who can give you the answers you need. I trust Chelsea Anglin of Guild Mortgage with my clients’ lending questions.
Can I keep my existing home and turn it into a rental, and then buy another house?
If I make a contingent offer, does that make me weaker against my competition?
My Top Tips for sellers
- Understand Seattle’s real estate seasons so that you can plan when to list. There are advantages and disadvantages to every selling season, so we will discuss your needs to plan the best time for you to list.
- There are three factors in what makes a property attractive: location, price, and condition of the home. Even at the multi-million dollar price point, we generally pick only two of those factors to market heavily.
- Staging is important. People need to feel that your house is actually available to be theirs. No one can imagine living in a home that still seems lived in. The more generic your staging, the easier it is for buyers to envision themselves in the house.
