I've created a short video with a simple decision tree on how to decide whether to buy or sell first if you're thinking about moving and have a home to sell. I've boiled it down to three questions to answer that lead you to four different options.

If you have other thoughts on how to make this decision or ideas to share on what's worked for you, I'd love to hear them! If you want to learn more about the pros and cons of each option and discuss which path might make the most sense for you, give me a call!

If you haven any questions, I'm happy to talk with you further about this and discuss whether it could be a good option for your situation. **Please note this is not legal advice and you may want to consult an attorney if you are considering this situation.**
