Chances are, the buyers you meet are more serious about purchasing. Not that spring and summer buyers aren’t, but winter buyers tend to be more motivated to find a home that is best for them and to get the deal done.
2. Less Competition
Most people think waiting for the 2018 spring and summer market is ideal, so there is a rush of homes hitting the market once the spring season hits. By listing a few months earlier, you don’t have nearly as many houses to compete with and your house is more visible to buyers.
Since the market is slower during the winter months, most agents and offices have less inventory, which then means, your home should be advertised more often. Less inventory means more free time to increase marketing efforts.
4. Fewer Showings
During the cold weather and holidays, there are fewer buyers which mean fewer showings but again, those buyers are usually very serious about making a purchase if they are out house hunting during this time of the year.
Most often when selling your house, you have a goal as to when you hope to have it sold by. By listing in the winter, you give yourself a better chance of hitting that goal.
6. Corporate Transfers
January is the biggest transfer month. The most corporate transfers happen in the month of January than at any other time of the year. Why not have your house listed and ready to go for those transfers?!
7. More time to get top dollar.
By starting the marketing of your home early, you may be able to secure a higher price.
8. The Market!!
Today’s interest rates are at a historic low around the 4% range. This allows buyers to have more spending power and will be even more important when you begin shopping for your next home.
