Reasons to Sell

Our goal is to help you make the right decision about whether or not to sell your house. If you do decide to sell, we want to make sure that you get as many dollars and as few upset stomachs from the sale as possible.

People's reasons for wanting to sell their houses are almost as varied as the houses themselves. Here are some of the common, not-so common, and downright bizarre reasons that have prompted sellers we've known over the years to put their houses on the market:

  • School district
  • Neighborhood
  • Better job opportunities elsewhere
  • Recent marriage or divorce
  • Recent death of spouse
  • Additional debt burden due to layoff, medical expenses, disability, or overspending
  • Serious house defects that they don't want to fix
  • Increased space desires for expanding family
  • Diminished space requirements now that kids are grown
  • Noisy neighborhood
  • Unfriendly neighbors
  • Neighborhood shopping
  • Climate
