Equity can play a role in timing a home sale

Those who own property in Delaware and throughout the country may sell their homes even if they owe money on their mortgages. Ideally, a homeowner will owe less on a home loan than his or her home is worth at the time of the sale. This is because the primary lender is the first to be paid when the sale closes. If there are any other home loans or lines of credit attached to the house, they will be paid off next.

Typically, those who are just looking will wait until the weather is nicer and more suitable for leisurely trips to various neighborhoods.
