Selling a home can be stressful for Kitchener Waterloo homeowners and how long it takes is a big part of that. In a recent Angus Reid survey for the Ontario Real Estate Association, 60% of homeowners would start to feel anxious if their home was still for sale after 45 days or more. A further 30% would be uneasy if their home sat on the market for just 30 days.
Real estate markets are local and how long it takes to sell a home varies greatly. Currently, the average resale home has been on the Kitchener Waterloo Multiple Listing Service for 53 days. Bear in mind, this number is artificially low. If we count homes that were for sale and didn't sell, then come back on the market and sell, the average is likely closer to 65 days. So many Kitchener Waterloo home sellers are definitely feeling stressed in the current market.
What can be done to minimize the stress? First, choose an experienced Realtor with a proven marketing plan and communicate your needs clearly. What is the most important thing to you? Is it the money, the timing or avoiding inconvenience? For example, if you are relocating from Kitchener Waterloo to China in 30 days and want your money too, it may not be the best idea to price your home higher than any historical sale in your area. By having a clear picture, your Realtor can tailor a marketing strategy to meet your goals and alleviate the stress involved with selling your home.
