If you’ve ever thought about selling your home, you know that the first question that comes to mind is,
“When should I take the next step?”
Sure, it may seem inconvenient to move in the colder months – but studies have shown that listing in the winter can pay off.
If you’re thinking of listing, waiting until spring can put your home in higher competition and provide the advantage to the buyer. More homes on the market means more for a buyer to choose from and buyers are more likely to be looking for a deal. Sellers can expect more realistic negotiations when the playing field is level.
On the flip side, buyers have benefits in the winter months as well, as sellers also tend to be more realistic. The home sale process, including appraisals, inspections and closings can be less stressful when these key professionals have fewer files on their desk. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Less competition, less workload on key players and more realistic buyers makes the sales outlook more desirable.
