Happy New Year!! Wishing you and your loved ones a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
Now that the holidays are over, I’ve had a number of homeowners ask me when would be the best time to list their home. No doubt, there’s a ton activity in the Spring and Fall markets, however believe it or not, the months leading up to Spring are a great time to consider listing your home. Here are 5 reasons why:
1). “Spring market” starts in February
Buyers are ready in February and typically want to close “in the spring”.
2). Less competition
Most sellers wait until April/May, which means more homes for sale = more competition for sellers.
3). January is the biggest corporate relocation month
Most corporate moves happen at the beginning of the year and the relocating Buyer is typically motivated and ready to make a quick decision.
4). Homes show well during winter months
The holidays are a great time to showcase your home because winter decor makes the home feel and homey inside and out.
5). More serious Buyers
Although you may have fewer showings during these cold months, you’ll definitely have more qualified Buyers who are ready to act now.
