If your house no longer fits your needs and you are planning on buying a luxury home, now is a great time to do so! Recently,the Institute for Luxury Home Marketingreleased itsLuxury Market Reportwhich showed that in today’s premium home market, buyers are in control.
The inventory of homes for sale in the luxury market far exceeds the number of people searching to purchase these properties in many areas of the country. This means that homes are often staying on the market longer or can be found at a discount.
Those who have a starter or trade-up home to sell will find buyers competing, and often entering bidding wars, to be able to call their house their new home.
The sale of your starter or trade-up house will help you come up with a larger down payment for your new luxury home. Even a 5% down payment on a million-dollar home is $50,000.
But not all who are buying luxury properties have a home to sell first.
A recentBloombergarticlegave some insight into what many millennials are choosing to do:
“A new generation of affluent homebuyers powered by a surge in inherited wealth is driving the luxury-home market, demanding larger spaces and fancier finishes, according to a report heralding ‘the rise of the new aristocracy.’”
The best time to sell anything is when demand is high, and supply is low. If you are currently in a starter or trade-up house that no longer fits your needs and you are looking to step into a luxury home, now’s the time to list your house for sale and make your dreams come true.

"I primarily dealt with Gus throughout my first home buying experience. Gus really made the process quite enjoyable. Being this was my first home purchase, I was a bit intimidated and nervous, however, Gus simplified the steps and kept in constant contact (via text, email, phone) letting me know where I was at in the transaction. In addition, Gus paid attention to what I was looking for. He asked a lot of questions to make sure he was showing me properties that I would be most interested in viewing. He was never pushy or unwilling to help. I would highly recommend Gus to any of my friends or family who are looking to buy a home!"
