You’ve got Equity, Now What?

Published on Jun 29, 2017 So you’ve been told that if you sell your property now you could have some equity, chunk of money, to take with you. After all you purchased under the right circumstances, at the right price and the demand is HIGH right now. So why not take the money and run?  In the late 1990’s an agent called me (I wasn’t licensed and cold calling was OK) and that agent said “Do you want a BUNCH of money for your property?” Well, of course I was packing before that call was over.
