At my Open House last Sunday, my first visitor, upon entrance, immediately asked if this property had any offers. Her home has been sold, with a 72 day close, and she has been unable to secure a suitable replacement property. Goes to the market at this time of year- because there is currently a lack of listings, anything that is in great shape and well priced is usually gone in the first weekend.
Take-away from this situation is that if you are considering listing your property within the next few months, and have your home market ready, why not list now? Taking advantage of this time of year to get your home sold in record time, and at the price you are hoping for, gives you a competitive advantage that probably will not exist in a few months.
Call your favourite agent, request a market analysis. Pulling the trigger at the right time can make a significant difference in your bottom line.
