The Coronado real estate market is perennially strong, and home values here will likely continue to rise for the foreseeable future. Yet for homeowners who might be grappling with the idea of selling, the market pull is met with a sentimental push back that can leave you in limbo for months or even years.

How do you know when it is truly the right time to sell your home? Everyone has their own unique situation, but there are a few common denominators we see in sellers who take the leap and find it to be the best decision they’ve ever made. Consider these 5 signs that selling your Coronado home is the right thing to do for you and your family.

The Kids are Off to College

An “empty nest” is one of the most common reasons for selling a home. When your children move out and start their own lives, the dynamics of your household change. And while you want them to have their old childhood island home to come back to, it’s not always the most financially sound decision to stay put. Many of our clients are extremely happy having downsized and reconsidered their needs after their children went off to college.

Unused Space

Oftentimes, the empty nest we refer to is synonymous with unused or unnecessary space. But, sometimes families realize they simply don’t need that spare bedroom or guestroom. Despite the negative connotation, downsizing isn’t really a bad thing. In fact, minimalism is trendy in the market, as a smaller space is more economical and easier to maintain.

The Math Adds Up in Your Favor

Let’s face it: selling your home comes down to a numbers game. You want to maximize your return, without sacrificing the lifestyle you are accustomed to. While working with your real estate agent, it will become very clear whenever you have an opportunity to make a move you can feel confident in.

A Desire for More Financial Freedom

Have you always wanted to travel the world but never quite gotten around to it? Or, perhaps you have a great business idea and want to explore entrepreneurship? For any aspirations that require an extra financial boost, selling your Coronado home can be a mechanism to making your dream a reality. If you have a vision for your life after the sale, this is a strong sign that you’re ready to let go of your current home.
