There are Benefits of Selling Your Home in the Fall and Winter
Many people consider fall and winter as the off season for real estate, with fewer shoppers hunting for homes and fewer listings from which to choose. That shouldn’t necessarily dissuade you from listing your home during the cold season.
Here are the benefits:
• The pool of prospective purchasers may be smaller, shoppers out hunting in fall and winter are usually more motivated and serious, often with a pressing need to close quickly and move in soon due to a job relocation or major life change These buyers that are out in the cold or looking during the holidays are not “tire kickers”, they are ready to BUY!
• Another advantage to listing now versus later is that there is LESS COMPETITION from other sellers. There are fewer houses on the market in the fall and winter, which may lead to MORE DEMAND for your house.
• Houses tend to show very well when decorated tastefully for the holidays, and buyers enjoy this.
• Buyers in the market are realizing that values are increasing and the time to buy is NOW, while interest rates are still reasonable and they can still get a deal on their dream home.
