Should I Wait Until Spring to Sell My Home?


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 youre ready to sell, dont 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. Thats 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 wont 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 youre looking to sell? The time couldnt 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.
