Why Sell Your Home In The Winter?


Many sellers think Spring is the best time to put their homes on the market because there are usually more buyers out at that time of year. 

What they don’t often consider is that every other homeowner is thinking the same thing, which means they’ll have the most competition.

Hi, I’m Ryan Cook, Broker/Owner of HomeSmart First Class Realty.

The #1 reason to list your home in the winter is there’s less competition. 

Inventory usually is at its lowest point in the winter, so the options buyers have are limited.

The ‘sweet spot’ for listing your house to get the most exposure happens at the start of the New Year.

When spring rolls around, temperatures aren’t the only thing that rises. So do the number of listings!

Don’t wait for all of the competition to show up before you decide to put your home on the market.

There is an added bonus to selling during the winter: the buyers who are out looking in the cold and snow tend to be very engaged and serious. 

You will be much less likely to be inconvenienced by those casually looking or just wanting to get decorating ideas for their own home.

You might be surprised how often that happens during more active markets. In the winter, the “lookers” are staying warm at home, online! 

If you’ve been thinking about whether or not to sell your home or are curious about the market conditions in your area, contact me today. I’m Ryan Cook, Broker/Owner of HomeSmart First Class Realty

…and remember who you work with matters, so work with someone who cares, has the heart of a teacher, and always puts YOU first.
