Do you wait … or do you list?
Have you asked yourself when is the ‘right time’ to list your home for sale? Are you stuck at a point of indecision? With every home seller I speak with the timeline of when to list is one of the top questions I hear, and with good reason.
Many clients have been told that they should only list in spring or summer. They are often told that warmer weather brings buyers. No one buys homes in the cold of winter! Right?
In reality, people buy homes at all times of the year and for various reasons. Relocating families are always on the move. Families with the intent to build will begin searching existing listings in winter, trying to confirm if building makes the best sense for their families finances. Their final outcome often leads them to scooping up prime properties during the winter when inventory is lower and buyers more serious. After all, touring property in the winter means we are focused on buying NOW!
Lets go back to the original question – “Do you wait … or do you list?” I say “List as soon as your home is ready to be presented at its BEST!” Buyer’s willing to go out in the cold to preview homes are serious buyers! If you wait … you miss them and they buy your neighbors home! Yes, with warmer weather the number of home lookers may go up … but so does the competition and quantity of sellers. Do you want to be the outstanding home amongst few, or amongst the masses?
I would love to hear your thoughts on when you think is the best time to sell, and also offer you some options you may have not considered yet.
As your potential Realtor of choice, I say “Lets be the leaders and not the followers in the home sale market. Lets set the bar together and get your home listed and sold … while your competition waits!
