The market is seasonal
Sales volume is typically at its lowest around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays
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
Since conventional wisdom says to sell in the busier times, most sellers start marketing in the Spring and Summer
Interestingly, the ratio between available homes and sold homes stays constant all year
The average number of days it takes to sell stays consistent in every season
Pick the timing that’s best for you
The best time to sell your house has much more to do with when you are ready, and when you want or need to move than it does with the season
Whenever you are ready to sell, I will help you get the most money possible, in the timing that works for you, with minimum hassle and surprises.
Money is available & rates are good
Lenders are making loans that make sense
Buyers can qualify as long as they are responsible and ready
Interest rates are excellent now, but they will go up sometime
Every 1% rise in rate would reduce buying power by 10%
This is a great time to sell your house!
Competition is low
Buyers are looking for great homes, and there aren’t too many for them to choose from
Builders are building lots of new homes to try to meet the demand
Prices are high
Your house is probably worth substantially more today than what you paid for it
There is a limit to how much you can sell for, even in this market, but if you are realistic you should be able to sell fairly quickly
We may be able to get buyers competing with each other to buy your house
This is a great time to sell your house if you are ready to take advantage of it!
