Should You Wait to Sell Your Home in the Spring?

The spring is certainly a busy time for real estate - warm weather and no major holidays means lots of sales.  But are there any advantages to selling during the winter?  Read on!

-Less competition. There are far fewer homes on the market in the winter months, so a buyers in your market and neighborhood are far more likely to view your home. The majority of sales may happen in the warm months, but you have the advantage of lower inventory during the winter months. You now increase the probability of viewings, potential sale, and top dollar for your home! Sold!

-Only serious buyers. People are busy and are often caught up in the holiday season. If people are looking at your home during the holidays, you know they're serious about buying in the short term.



-Homes show better during the holidays. This may be speculative, but many people find holiday charm and decor very inviting. Buyers like a home that tells a story, and this is a great change when your house is dressed up for the holidays.

-January is the biggest transfer month. There are more corporate moves and transfers that take place in January than that of any other time of year. Relocating buyers are looking for a home that is available quickly.


-Timing. If you have a purchase contract in place in the winter months,
it allows you to start searching for your home in the coming months when there is more inventory to choose from.


-More attention. Fewer listings in the winter months allow for better exposure, even further attention from your Realtor, and more targeted and effective marketing syndication both online and offline.






















Of course, if you're thinking of selling your home during the winter and need some helpful advice, I'm always available to help you and make selling your home easy!  Call or email me any time - I look forward to hearing from you!
