4 Benefits of Selling in Winter
Real estate historically slows a bit at the end of the year, with family traditions, holidays and winter vacations. It's a great time to take advantage of the slow down - whether you are a buyer or seller. Here are a few reasons why wintertime can be very beneficial to sellers!
1) Less competition! There are usually fewer homes on the market at this time of year. Many people will wait to list their homes until the spring. Use this to your advantage; fewer homes for sale means that your home will stand out.
2) Buyers are more motivated to close. While there may be fewer buyers in the winter, the ones who are in the market want to close quickly. These are the folks who want to buy a home, and they want to buy it now.
3) Your home may show better. The cozy ambiance that defines winter can help potential buyers imagine living there.
4) You can take advantage of the holiday season. Decorating with festive wreaths and lighting can also make your home appear more inviting.
