If you’re thinking about selling your home later this spring or summer, you should consider moving up your timeline. Here are a few reasons why.

 

I have been hearing from a lot of people lately who are unsure about whether they should list their home now or wait until later in the spring to do so.

 

Listing now does offer a few distinct advantages. There are fewer homes on the market now than there will be in the next month or two, which is a good thing. Less competition means a better chance of your home receiving multiple offers or selling above list price. For example, I listed a home about a week ago at a great price point that has already received four offers and will be sold for more than its initial list price.

 

"Buyers who are out in the market now are serious."

 

Another positive is that companies are typically making their hires toward the beginning of the year. Those transferees take this time to look for homes now and are ready to make a purchase quickly.

 

Finally, people who are looking for homes around this time of year are serious. They’re willing to trudge around in the snow to look at homes, and they usually have a reason for buying now.

 

If you have questions about selling your home or anything else related to real estate, feel free to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
