SHOULD I SELL MY HOME NOW OR WAIT TILL THE SPRING

There are many questions homeowners ask themselves during the selling process. " How much will my home sell for? " How much should i list my home for?" Who should I select as a real estate agent to sell my home?" What if the real estate agent overpriced my home?" Last but not least, is this a good time to be selling a home?" is also a very common question that real estate agents are asked.

As with every decision in life, there are pluses and minuses. and choosing when to sell your home is no different. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration before deciding when to sell a home. Homeowners believe selling a home during the fall and winter month is not a good idea and that the spring is the only good time a house should be sold. This is the furthest from the truth. Most real estate markets across the US experience a spring market rush every year. There is no doubt that the spring is a good to be selling and buying real estate, however, the fall and winter months my be the best fit for you for many reasons.

Here are several reasons why choosing to sell your home now may be a better decision than waiting until the spring.


LESS COMPETITION

One way you can tell the spring real estate market has arrived is by driving down a street in your local community. In all likelihood there will be For Sale signs up all over the neighborhood! One good reason to sell your home now and not wait until the spring is there to be less competition. The fewer number of comparables homes for sale, the greater the probability that a buyer will look at your home.

Simply put, it's the supply and demand theory. If there are less homes for sale, there are less homes for a potential buyer to choose from, therefore increasing the demand for your home. Not only will less competition increase the probability for showing, but it will increase the probability that an offer will be received and you will get the maximum amount of money for your home.

SERIOUS BUYERS ARE OUT THERE

Homes are bought and sold 365 days a year, period! Many homeowners believe that buyers aren't out there during the fall and winter months. This is simply not the case. Serious buyers are always out there! Some buyers may stop their home search because it is fall or winter, but serious buyers will continue to look at homes, no matter what time of year it is. 


GREAT AGENTS ARE ALWAYS UP TO THE CHALLENGE

Any real estate agent who tell you that the fall or winter months are a bad time to sell is not someone you want selling your home!  A great real estate agent will know how to adapt to the current season and market their listings to reflect that. A Great real estate agent can make suggestions and give some of their tips on how to sell a home during the fall or winter seasons. If a real estate agent doesn't have any suggestions on making your home more desirable for the current season, you should be concerned about the creativity they are going to use when marketing your home.
