    If you own real estate you may or may not be considering moving up. There was a time, not too long ago, that many people considered moving up. Bigger was better, and moving up into a larger home was the thing to do. Now that headlines are blaring that smaller is better, less is more, and who needs a Mansion, people are wondering a lot harder whether moving up is the right thing to do.

    The reality is that many people need to move up, after all not many people want to raise a family in a one bedroom apartment or condo. While a Mansion may not be the answer, more space may be in the cards and now is a great time to take advantage of extremely high affordability levels and find a home that will fit your needs.

    Wondering whether moving up is right for you? Consider the following:

    • Why do you want to move up?
    • Do you need more space or simply want more space?
    • What are your priorities in a new home going to be?
    • Can you qualify for a mortgage?
    • Do you have job security?
    • Do you have equity in your current home?

    These are but a few questions to ask yourself when considering moving up in today’s real estate market. Low interest rates and low home values have combined to create an ideal climate for today’s home buyer. Weigh your options and now just might be the time for you to get the home you’ve always dreamed of.

    Final Word:  Make sure you are working with a Real Estate Professional.  It is also important that they are a Local Expert.  When you decide to press the trigger with regard to your Real Estate needs – do a bit of “googleing” searching on the specific agent you are considering hiring.  It will serve you well.

Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service.
