In a perfectly balanced market place you would be able to buy and sell within a close timeframe. However, it may be wise to sell first with a longer closing to provide the time it may take to find a property to purchase. The real question here is “Do I need the funds from the sale to close on the purchase?”

To prepare for buying, go and visit some potential “top choice” options. Depending on the strength of the buyer market vs seller market, you may find the two transactions work out with perfect timing.

This can be full staging with furnishings, wall decor, scent and more or after a staging consultation, you are provided with suggestions for furniture placement, and self-staging for general appeal.

There are costs to having a staged property but often the costs will create a faster sale and better sale price.

In general, you want to ensure anything broken, creaking, dirty or in need of paint, is taken care of, especially before photos are taken and showings begin.
