Buy and Sell

Well, this blog has been around a couple of years now and I do not believe we have ever done a double post quite like this one. Today, we are going to recommend that you BUY and, if you are already an owner, that you SELL. They actually do complement one another! Let's start with the BUY recommendation. Have you heard of the American Dream? Who has not? Mention of it has been in our Welcome Message for years - because we believe in it!

In today's first article, we are looking at comments from Sean Conlon, host of The Deed: Chicago on CNBC. He gives a very strong BUY recommendation and we agree 100% with his logic. A home is an investment, a home is shelter, a home is safety and a home is a way to achieve increased wealth. There is so much going on in the market today. Don't be in the position of looking back 10 or 20 or even 30 years from now and thinking - "I wish I would have...." There is a phrase you can search for on the internet - it is "Just Do It", Give that some thought!

Now let's look at the SELL recommendation in today's second article. Well, first of all, we just suggested to everyone that they go out and BUY - and now we need you to SELL. Alright, having a little fun there, but the truth is there remains a shortage of homes for sale to have a healthy market. The "norm" tends to be around a 6 month supply. The present supply of homes on the market is a little under 4 months. That drives up prices - meaning you might have more equity in your home than you thought. You can use that equity to buy your next home and continue the road to increased wealth - or depending on where you are in life's journey, it may be the time to cash out and downsize and use some of that equity to fund other goals in life. Whatever your direction, the possibilities are endless and the opportunity is there. If you are thinking about selling - and a lifestyle change - now is just a great time.

As always, we welcome the opportunity to chat with you in person and our services when you are ready.
