IS THIS A GOOD TIME FOR YOU TO MOVE?
Does the time of year matter?
The market is seasonal
Sales volume is typically at its lowest around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Then activity typically starts to pick up after the new year, and it continues to rise through the spring. The summer months are typically the busiest months. Activity usually stays strong through the fall.
Competition is seasonal too
Most sellers start marketing in the spring and summer so you’ll have more choices to buy but also more competition to sell. Interestingly, the ratio between available homes and sold homes stays pretty constant all year. The average number of days it takes to sell stays pretty consistent in every season.
Pick the timing that’s best for you
The best time to move from where you want to be has more to do with when you are ready than what season it is. Whenever you are ready, I will help you get smoothly from the house you have to the home you want. Let’s start planning now so you are ready when the timing and opportunity are right.
How is the market?
Money is available & rates are good
Lenders are making loans that make sense. You and your buyers can qualify as for great loan options. Interest rates are excellent, now, but sometime they are going to go up. Every 1% rise in rate would reduce buying power by 10%. This is a great time to move!
Good homes are available
Sellers are taking advantage of the opportunity to move up, so great homes are coming available and builders are building lots of new homes to try to meet the demand. Buyers are jumping into the market or moving up to homes like yours. This is a great time to move!
You can move when you want
The same market forces will affect both parts of your move. When demand is high, you can sell quickly for more, but you’ll have to pay more for what you want. When demand is low, you can find a great deal, but you’ll have to sell for less. Any time is a great time to move if you are ready to take advantage of it!
