In the colder months, it can be tempting to settle down and wait for things to warm up before you put your property on the market, but if you’re ready to sell, don’t wait. The right time is now!
Less Competition During the Winter
With fewer houses on the market during the winter, yours will stand out more. Plus, the lack of competition this time of year may mean you can set a higher sales price than buyers will be willing to tolerate when spring rolls around. That’s because most people looking to buy a home in the winter are often more serious about making a purchase.
Fewer New Homes on the Market
Colder temperatures mean less new construction, so your house won’t have to compete with as many brand-new ones this time of year. Just add a coat of neutral paint and some winter greenery or flowers like mums or pansies for a fresh look.
The Best Time to Sell Raw Acreage
Have raw land or acreage that you’re looking to sell? The time couldn’t be better. With leaves down from the trees, potential buyers can better see the property, which is especially important if your land has a view.
