Top Four Reasons to Sell Your Home in the Winter
While real estate sales are typically slower from December through March, there are still plenty of reasons to list your house for sale now. Here are the top four:
- Inventory in many communities in Central Ohio remains low. As a result, there is pent up demand in the real estate market as a buyers are unable to find homes that meet their needs.
- Most sellers wait until the weather starts to turn, and as the whether heats up, so does the competition. Given demand, you can beat other sellers to the punch by listing in what some might consider the off-season.
- While it sounds like a broken record, most economists predict that interest rates will continue creeping upward in the coming months and perhaps years. As a result, affordability for buyers will head in the opposite direction and potentially shrink your buyer pool.
- Lastly, it just takes the right buyer to walk through your home for a successful real estate transaction. The fact remains that homes still sell during the winter months and buyers are scouring the Internet right now looking for a place to call home. The only way to insure that you won’t sell is to not list in the first place.
