You’re Waiting Until Spring to Sell?

Springtime is fast approaching, and many homeowners, as well as Realtors are waiting until spring to get the ball rolling. However, the market suggests that waiting until the weather warms up may not be the best option for sellers!

If you are in the mood to sell your house, doing so in the winter can actually lead to really great results! The debate is whether to list a home in the winter or wait until spring. Of course the thought process with most sellers is their home looks best in springtime, but guess what?! People wanting to move in springtime are looking to buy RIGHT NOW! By waiting to list your home, you limiting yourself and missing out on the buyers who are ready to shop TODAY!

Here are 5 reasons not to wait:

1. COMPETITION!

A LOT of homeowners sell their homes in spring! Waiting until spring = More sellers = more competition= lower prices = less $$$ in your pocket! Listing earlier when there is less competition tends to be beneficial for sellers to net the largest sales price on their home.

2. INTEREST RATES!

For many buyers, interest rates MAY go up in a couple of months, meaning waiting until spring could lead to fewer people being able to afford your home. We only know what the market is doing RIGHT NOW, and waiting until spring could result in having to sell at a lower price point than today!

3. MANY JOB TRANSFERS HAPPEN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR!

and these buyers are looking to buy FAST!

4. RESULTS

New Home Collective averages 13 days to sell a home. That means, we could have you listed and SOLD before the first day of spring!

5. THERE ARE MORE SERIOUS BUYERS IN THE WINTER

Spring brings out the “just browsing” open house crowd; the “looky lous” who want to come to your open house, eat your Realtor’s cookies, and never buy a darn thing!
