Scratch whatever you may have heard about the spring and summer to be the best times to sell your home. The time is NOW! I know you must be thinking if there could be a more HECTIC time but the truth of the matter is that if you’ve even considered moving on from your current home in the next year, here are several reasons that will drive your decision to make the move now:
- Presentation: Your home looks great with all of your Christmas decorations and lights. You may even keep your home more organized and spotless than usual with unexpected guests knocking at your door to visit while they are in town. Why not take advantage of it? Make sure your decorations are tasteful and updated to appeal to all possible buyers.
- A Less Competitive Market: For the exact reason that you are pondering why you should you put your home on the market during this time of year, you can be sure that lots of people are thinking this. This creates less competition in the home market which gives YOU the driving edge for possible buyers looking in your area. Less inventory means more foot traffic through your home which increases your chances of getting the offer you want.
- Serious Buyers: As we inch toward the end of a year, many corporate moves happen during this time. People also think about making a fresh start in a new home. The most important role that you have as a seller is to provide a flexible showing schedule to accommodate those who want to see your home. Think of like this: they wouldn’t look if they weren’t serious. Last year, I had two buyers that bought homes in December and this year, I have four qualified buyers that are seeking to buy their next home now! Please let me show you how I can sell your home and help you achieve your real estate goals!
