Congratulations! You're gone from a first time buyer to being a proud home owner. But what happens when you're ready to move up? The process of finding a home might be a little easier with experience, but there are certain factors that can complicate the situation of simultaneously buying and selling. It's very important for you to understand these issues before you list your home for sale.

It's imperative that you make informed choices before you put your home on the market in anticipation of moving to a larger home.
