So it’s January, it’s cold outside and there’s snow everywhere. You’re anxious to sell your house, but you think January can’t possibly be the best time for that. Your family and friends all agree that April is a much better month to put your house on the market. So you wait……. and wait ……. and wait.
Well STOP WAITING!!
Here are 3 great reasons to list your house for sale in January.
1. There are fewer houses on the market – you’ll have less competition and a greater chance of getting an offer.
2. Anyone house hunting in January is serious about buying – the tire kickers are at home where it’s warm.
3. January is the biggest month for corporate employee transfers. Buyers being transferred to your area don’t have the luxury of time – they’re ready to make an offer on your house right now!
