Increase Your Wealth By Moving Up Now, Not Next Year (Source: pixabay.com - used as royalty free image)Let’s dispense with one prevalent real estate myth right upfront: There will never be a perfect time to buy or sell your home.

The good news? With conditions as they are, the temperature looks good for buyers and sellers – if you act quickly. Drag your feet, however, and you could miss out on a chance to maximize your wealth. Here’s what we mean:
