Sell now or wait? That is the question..

03rd September 2015

Renaissance is committed to reducing any stress involved in the decision making and moving process. Three concerns commonly raised are:-

1. Downsizing and relinquishing years of accumulated items.

2. Confidence in securing a chosen unit.

3. Somewhere to reside if the house sells before a chosen villa is ready.

Perhaps you may also be confronted with similar concerns. Be assured you are not alone in the process. It has all been done before. Our Lifestyle Consultants are here to help you and they know skilled professionals who can assist you.

The following is a summary of useful things that may ease your concerns.

Start by obtaining a preliminary assessment on your home from three local agents along with their proposed marketing strategy. This enables you to consider the full financial implications of how much you may get for you home, what funds you want surplus to assist with your future retirement lifestyle and expenses associated with the sale and moving process. Then you will have a good idea of what you have to spend on your retirement accommodation.

Renaissance encourages clients to have their homes sold or on the market before entering into a formal application process. In some cases a preferred villa may be under construction, this can lead to hesitation in selling your home. However we have evidenced disappointment in the past where future residents have not been able to sell their houses prior to the completion of their new villa. Which has resulted in them not being able to move into their selected unit.

We can’t predict with accuracy what the property market will do at any given time, but we have an option for future residents to assist them in securing their chosen villa and take advantage of the current demand for residential property. For more details about how we can help you in the process of selling and moving, contact our Lifestyle Consultants on 07 3820 7700.
