This is a great time to move up to a better home with low interest rates. While not ideal, remember you can always rent for a month or two if your home sells before finding your next perfect home. You can even end up renting your own house back while your new home is in the closing process. This can be negotiated and is an option to think about if you want to sell but are concerned about finding your next place. Contact a First Weber agent today to talk.
