1. connect with a good local Realtor, one you trust and who has experience in your area...
2. Make sure that you do understand that you probably will not make any money on the sale of your
home, unless it is a particular sought after home/ size or style, or a super great location....
Which would mean that you will lose some of the money you put down when purchasing the home in 2010 and you will have the closing costs and the moving costs.... So sit down with an experienced Realtor, if you need a recommendation get back to me.... and crunch the numbers and compare your property to those similar homes that recently sold, and those currently competing with yours, on the market for sale.... Remember that when selling, you can sell your home only for what themarket will bear and what a ready and willing buyer is ready and willing in today's market to pay, plus commission to the Realtors, closing costs, and moving costs!!!!!
3. Then look with your Realtor at that less expensive home, also smaller? and what that one would
cost you as far as sale price goes, plus closing costs for this one, and any eventually necessary
upgrades, painting, new or different furniture!
Only then will you be able to make an educated decision...... But you need an experienced Realtor
who can pull together all the information for you and discuss your situation in detail and honestly with you.
Good Luck to you....
