Looking to move or upgrade your Charleston home?

While the tumultuous real estate market has many people hunkered down hoping it will all blow over, proactive homeowners are looking beyond the uncertainty. They're weighing a decision about whether to refinance their current mortgage or trade up to a house they couldn't afford three years ago.

4 Questions to ask yourself about real estate

But before you take the leap, real estate professionals caution that the same basic rules about buying a home still apply. Here are four questions to ask yourself:

  • How long do I plan to stay in the new home? Rule of thumb is at least five years to make a new mortgage worthwhile.
  • Do I really need to move or just grab a deal?
  • Can I cover the costs to close and relocate? With every winner, there's usually a loser, and you could be both.
  • If I stay in my current home, does it make sense to refinance and maybe add that extra bedroom or improve the property?

Take a deep breath and analyze what you really need, not what the market is telling you to do.

"The decision depends on the individual. Are they looking to move because their family has grown or has their job changed locations, or do they want a shorter commute? Those are reasons to look at buying," says Bernard Markstein, senior vice president of the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C.

But don't move just for the sake of moving, says Elizabeth Blakeslee, an associate broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Washington, D.C. Now is a great time to buy, but prospective homebuyers should make sure that's what they really should do.

"You have to figure out your motivating factors," Blakeslee says. "If you're just trying to get a deal, you might want to think about it a little longer. These low interest rates are certainly a consideration for people, but as with every decision in life, you have to ask yourself, 'What is my goal?'

We can consult you and your family’s real estate needs to see if moving or updating your home is the best value for you or your family in the Charleston Coastal Area.

Let us take the guess work out of your real estate and help you achieve your goals!
