    Moving-Up to a Luxury Home


    Moving-Up to a Luxury Home

    If your house no longer fits your needs and you are planning on buying a luxury home, now is a great time to do so! We recently shared data from Trulia’s Market Mismatch Study which showed that in today’s premium home market, buyers are in control. 

    The inventory of homes for sale in the luxury market far exceeds those searching to purchase these properties in many areas of the country. This means that homes are often staying on the market longer which can eventually lead to a price change.

    Those who have a starter or trade-up home to sell will find buyers competing, and often entering bidding wars, to be able to call your house their new home.

    The sale of your starter or trade-up house will aid in coming up with a larger down payment for your new luxury home. Even a 5% down payment on a million-dollar home is $50,000.

    But not all who are buying luxury properties have a home to sell first.

    Carl Gentile, President and Luxury Specialist at Gentile & Associates an eXp Realty group, gave some insight into what many millennials are choosing to do:

    “Some high-earning millennials are saving money until they can afford exactly what they are after, skipping over the starter home phase - which is causing individuals to rent for longer than typically normal.”

    Bottom Line

    The best time to sell anything is when demand is high and supply is low. If you are currently in a starter or trade-up house that no longer fits your needs and you are looking to step into a luxury home, now’s the time to list your house for sale and make your dreams come true.
