Before you begin the selling process, you need to evaluate why you’re moving. Is your current home too large or too small? Has your job been moved to another city and you need to relocate? Are you happy living in your current neighbourhood? Or are you simply looking for a change? A complete analysis of your current situation will set a great foundation for your next home search.
