Sell During the Winter?

5 reasons winter is a great time to sell your home

By bridgeMLS

Many home sellers believe that Spring or Summer are the ideal times to sell a property, so much so it seems odd to suggest otherwise. However, Winter is a great time to sell your home and get a good price for it. Here are 5 reasons why, if you are thinking of selling, winter is the perfect time to do it.

Less Competition

With so many sellers believing winter is a bad time to sell, there are less homes on the market. That’s good news for you, because you aren’t competing with so many to attract buyers to view your home.

Less work needed to prepare your home

In the summer months, prospective buyers roll up to your home expecting beautifully manicured gardens, which is a significant investment of your time. In winter, with flowering plants dormant anyway, selling your home does not mean becoming a full-time gardener.

Homes are in demand

With less homes on the market, buyers have less choice, but that means more people looking at your home. The competition isn’t with sellers in winter, it’s between buyers!

Buyers mean business

Not only are buyers competing with each other to buy the desirable homes that are on the market, there are less time-wasters in winter too. While attending open houses can be a pleasant way to spend a day in the summer, even for those with no intention of buying, it is less so in the winter, where most people tend to spend their time at home unless they need to do something.

That means those actually viewing are serious about buying.

Faster Sales

With less competition, homes in demand and serious buyers, chances are you will sell your home even quicker during the winter.

So, what are you waiting for? If you have thought about selling your home, now is the time to get it on the market and make that move.
