Most people sell a home to move to a larger home or another area of the town, state or country for a multitude of different reasons, and often also to buy a different type of home.... when you put your home on the market you need to sit down with an experienced local Realtor to figure out the current value of
your home, what exactly it could sell for, what your closing costs and commissions would be, and other costs to close on the home sale, at the closing table you will have to pay off the remaining loan amount on your home, pay all your closing costs and any taxes you may owe, and the remainder then would be your net to seller....

So you need to make sure with your Realtor that with the app. sale price, and deducting from that all the costs you will have that there is money left over, and you do not have to bring money to the closing table.

So first discuss your home's market value and do discuss honestly with your Realtor the truly possible
net to seller.....

If you have a pre-pay penalty on your loan, that would be a disadvantage. If there is one, most loans are a 1-3 year pre-penalty. Please contact your lender and ask the question.

Paying off a loan looks good on your credit...no worries.

There is one real advantage with selling your home prior to paying it all off. That is, you gain more. Because of the life of the loan you will be paying a hefty price in interest. Please feel free to give me a call and I can give you a proper and accurate price range for selling your home.
