Wondering what time of year is the best to sell a home? Here’s Why You Should Sell Your Home in the Winter
It is common for people to think that the best time to sell is in the spring, and sure, homes look great when the flowers are blooming and the weather is a bit nicer, but there are some really great reasons that selling in the winter might be 𝗯𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 and more importantly, can get your home sold 𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗿!
Many sellers think that spring is the best time to put their homes on the market, because there are usually more buyers out at that time of year, and their gardens are starting to bloom.
What they don’t often consider is that every other homeowner is thinking the exact same thing, which means they’ll have the most competition.
The number one reason to list your home in the winter is that there is less competition. Inventory is usually at its lowest point in the wintertime, so the options buyers have are very limited. The sweet spot for listing your home to get the most amount of money and exposure happens at the start of the new year. When spring rolls around and the temperatures rise, so do the number of listings. Don’t wait for all of the competition to show up before you decide to put your home on the market.
There is an added bonus to selling during the winter: the buyers who are out looking in our cold, dark, wet weather, tend to be very serious and engaged. You will be less likely to be inconvenienced by those people who are casually looking, or just wanting to get decorating ideas for their own homes. You might be surprised at how often that happens. So during the winter months the lookie-loos are typically staying at home, and are just looking online.
