Do you know what most sellers are thinking right now? 'I'll sell my home in the spring". Guess what? Your neighbor is thinking the exact same thing! While buyer demand tends to increase at that time of year, its also the time when the market is at its MOST saturated with listings. Get ahead of the game and get on the market now!
less competition + more demand = better offers
Housing supply traditionally shrinks at this time of year, so the choices buyers have will be limited. The chart below was created using the months supply of listings from the National Association of Realtors.
As you can see, the ‘sweet spot’ to list your house for the most exposure naturally occurs in the late fall and winter months (November – January).
In 2018, listings increased from December to May. Don’t wait for these listings and the competition that comes with them to come to the market before you decide to list your house.
Added Bonus: Serious Buyers Are Out in the Winter
At this time of year, purchasers who are serious about buying a home will be in the marketplace. You and your family will not be bothered and inconvenienced by mere ‘lookers.’ The lookers are at the mall or online doing their holiday shopping.
