How Is Your Equity?
It might be best for people with low equity to wait before selling their home, since I can negatively affects the seller’s credit. It is better to sell your home when it is worth more than you paid for it, so that you have money to buy a new home.
Is the Home Ready for Buyers?

Does the Size of Your Home Suit Your Needs?
If you are on the fence about selling, think about how your current home fits your lifestyle. If you are a growing family, you may need a bigger property, and if your family is shrinking, a smaller Irvine townhome for sale might be more affordable. Think about your current situation as well as where you and your family will be in a few years when deciding if it’s the right time to move.
Do You Have a Plan for Moving Out?
Make sure that you have a plan for moving out of your current home before listing it for sale. While it’s possible your home will stay on the market for a few months, it’s possible you’ll find a buyer within a few weeks, and that buyer may want a quick close.
