Winter’s the off-season for real estate.
Or so you THOUGHT.
It’s true that the spring and summer months are busiest for real estate — most people wait until the kids are out of school, the days are longer, and the weather is warmer to buy or sell.
And for good reason.
The flowers are in bloom, landscaping looks great, and the neighborhood is alive.
But here’s the thing…
So is the market.
Your home may be a stunner in the summer, but there are some massive reasons to sell during the fall and winter months. Here are just a few…
- It’s a seller’s market. Simple as that. Because of the misconception that summer is go-time when it comes to selling your home, there just aren’t that many homes on the market in the colder months, meaning your competition is going to be pretty
- Only serious people are buying homes in the winter. Winter buyers are the people braving blizzards and cold weather just to come tour your home. They’re interested in buying, and they’re interested in doing it fast.
- Buyers are looking to take advantage of year-end bonuses. Many employers still give out year-end bonuses, and sometimes they’re the perfect downpayment for a new home. As a seller, you have the opportunity to sell to those buyers who now have the money to buy!
The idea of selling in the fall or winter may be odd, especially if you have school-aged children who might have to move mid-year, but it’s a great idea for people who want to make a fast, smart and decisive move. I can help you with the timing and staging to make things just right, and help you move into the home of your dreams!
