Reasons Not To Wait Until Spring To Sell
Selling your home in the fall or winter months brings a unique market where there are often less homes for sale and thus a properly priced home will often bring quicker and stronger offers. Buyers who search during this time of year usually are more serious and are shopping out of necessity rather than wasting the sellers' time. The result of fewer homes on the market creates a sense of urgency in the buyer, which can equate to an easier sales negotiation with less concessions. The other positive of selling at this time is that realtors may not be as busy and can be more attentive to homes entering the market for buyers they are working with during this period. In fact, the holiday season is a great time to showcase your home with festive decor that gives it a warm and inviting feel.
As a full time Realtor since 1986, I have experienced the above information to hold true through-out the years. If you are considering selling your home, there is no need to wait until spring like everyone else. List your home and beat other homes on the market, then have it sold before spring.
