Is Selling in the Winter a Good Idea?

The end of the year is usually when we see a downswing in the market and and an overall decrease in the number of buyers, and sellers. Today we are going to talk about why listing your house during the 4th quarter of the year is a good idea. You'd be surprised at the benefits listing your home during the holidays offers. 

For one, buyers are more serious. They aren't going to be looking at houses just for the fun of it. In this kind of cold weather, they are serious about purchasing a home, and impressing these kinds of buyers is extremely important. 

Statistically, just about every week for the last month our inventory has been decreasing. As we see inventory continue to decrease, the houses that are still out there stand a better chance of selling.

Another benefit of listing your home during the holidays is that a lot of people take time off or work at this point in the year. That means more time to look at houses for the serious buyers.

Companies also tend to transfer their employees at the end of the year. A lot of these employees have families that are moving with them, and they will want to find a house before the end of the year, so they can move right in when they are transferred.

If you are interested in selling your home, give us a call. We'd love to help you take advantage of this market during the next few months.
