It is the right time to sell YOUR property when you are ready to part with your home. We have found that the emotional tie to your home can be strong. If you are not clear what your goal is for parting with your property it will difficult getting it sold. Market conditions and proper marketing can certainly make the sale move faster, but really it is about you, the homeowner.

Know Why You Want to Sell

Your motivation to sell is going to be the driving force behind selling your home. In many areas, it can be that you need to relocate for a job, be closer to family, or need a larger house. However, in the Smoky Mountain Property Market, most of our properties are second homes or investment properties. The need to sell these log cabins, chalets, or condos can be that you no longer use the property the way you had first intended. Many people think they will have more time to enjoy a second home and find that there just isn’t enough time. Investment property can also be costly if you are not getting a good return on investment. Your need to sell might be financially motivated. Also, we have found that people simply want a change in their log cabin. Perhaps, they want a larger cabin, different location. Knowing this motivation will help you be able to part with your property.

The Best Time to Sell Your Home

The Smoky Mountains economy is driven by tourism. However, property sales are not always reflective of this. Often people like to buy investment properties in an off season to give them a chance to redecorate and refurbish before the busier season. The main thing to remember is that a buyer cannot find your property if it is not listed on the market.

I worked with Josh Wells buying my first rental cabin in Sevierville. He was a huge help throughout the entire process and has been helpful after we closed. I consider Josh a great friend now. I am looking forward to working with Josh in the future when we buy our next cabin. When buying a house, it is imperative to have an advocate on your side; there is none better than Josh. Thank you so much.
