At this time of year, many Douglas County families come together to celebrate the holiday. It’s also the time when a lot realize their homes are just not quite large enough to host all of their guests and loved ones. Are you one of those Douglas County homeowners dreaming for a bigger area to call home?
You may have enough equity in your current home to move up.
According to the Q3 2019 U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report by ATTOM Data Solutions,
“14.4 million residential properties in the United States were considered equity rich, meaning that the combined estimated amount of loans secured by those properties was 50 percent or less of their estimated market value.”
This means that 1 in 4 of the 54 million mortgaged properties in the United States have at least 50% equity. If these homeowners decide to sell, they can use their equity to put toward the purchase of a new house. Maybe you will be one of them.
The NAR recently released their 2019 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers showing that,
“This year, home sellers cited that they sold their homes for a median of $60,000 more than they purchased it, up from $55,500 the year prior. This accounted for a 31 percent price gain, up from 29 percent the year before.”
If you’re one of the Douglas County many property owners with large hopes of owning a larger house, let’s get together. Working with a trusted advisor to discover how much equity you have is a perfect initial in putting your move-up idea in motion.
