Buying & Selling Simultaneously in a Cooling Market vs in a Hot Market (Pricing? List Price? Still No Contest) Part 2
Homes for sale are in their best condition in a Buyer's Market. Some sellers want to make their home more marketable. When that seller becomes a buyer and a seller in a Buyer's Market, they usually will have their home in good condition, as is often the case with the home they are buying. A Buyer's Market frequently allows the trading-up or trading-down Buyer full contingencies across the board! Including but not limited to, condition of the property, financing, appraisal, disclosure and "sale and close" of buyer's home contingencies!
