Is it Time to Move? Consider Using a Low Commission Real Estate Agent in Oshawa

Derek's realtor commission is a low 1% for selling your home.

Owning a home means having a place that’s solely your own and provides the space, features, and location you and your loved ones need. But what happens when your needs change? If this hits home for you, it may be time to make a move.

As an experienced Oshawa low commission real estate agent, I can tell you that the average person has lived in their current house for about ten years. If you’ve been in your home for a while, think about how much your life has changed since you moved in. Even if you thought it would be your forever-home when you bought it, it doesn’t have to be. Work with a local real estate agent to explore all your options in today’s market before settling for your current home.

That’s actually what a lot of homeowners are doing right now. A recent survey from finds that, of people who are considering selling in 2023, one in three are thinking about moving because their home no longer meets their needs and that’s consistent with this year’s top reasons for selling, which include:

  • Want to move closer to friends or family
  • Moving due to retirement
  • Home is too small or too large
  • Change in family situation
  • Job relocation

If things in your life have changed, it may be time to make a move. And there’s good news: it’s still a great time to sell. Here’s why:

We’re in a strong sellers’ market. That means homes listed at market value and in good condition are getting attention from buyers and selling quickly. Lean on your expert real estate advisor for the best advice on getting your house ready to sell.

When you sell, you can use that equity to help afford your next home. In fact, a report from the National Association of Realtors® shows 38% of recent buyers used the money from the sale of their previous home to cover the down payment on their next one.
