Where Preparation and Opportunity Meet
Ignore the hype about shifting real estate trends and focus on what’s most important to you. For example, maybe you want a larger house for a growing family or a work-at-home arrangement. On the other hand, perhaps the home you’re living in is too large. You no longer need all the space, which makes downsizing to a smaller house your plan.
While some buyers will get comfortable with the idea of bidding and overpaying for a home, this isn’t usually a good strategy unless you’re expecting to live in the home for more than ten years. When you buy too much house— with a mortgage that you’re struggling to meet then your dream home may become a nightmare.
If you’re a home seller you may be concerned about selling and buying a more expensive home. In addition, the timing of buying and selling may be a concern.

After you’ve created your buy or sell timeline, work with your realtor to look at homes. This process can help you become realistic about your budget and what you want to spend. Next, work with a loan officer to determine a reasonable monthly mortgage payment if becoming a cash buyer isn’t an option.
