    Even now that the holidays are over and the new year has arrived, many homeowners are still reluctant to put their homes on the market until the winter weather fades away.

    However, while temperatures outside may be freezing, the seller’s market we’re experiencing is red hot. Right now is the perfect time to beat the crowd and list your home before others do in the spring.

    Listing your home in the first few months of the year will present you with the opportunity to draw in strong buyers and strong offers.

    For example, first-quarter job relocations bring in a demographic of buyers you won’t want to miss out on. These buyers are ready to move in as soon as possible.

     

     

    And because the winter weather makes it impossible to have a lush yard, you can spend less time and money worrying about your landscaping when you list during these colder months. Rather than pruning plants and pulling weeds, you can sit by the fire and relax.

    Also, while it may be true that there are fewer buyers in the market at this time of year, the buyers who are looking are more determined. When it comes to buyers, quality is more important than quantity. We all know we’d rather stay snuggled up inside during these low temperatures. So, any buyer who is willing to brave the cold to see your home is sure to be committed.

    This increased buyer determination is proven to lead to faster home sales. It has also been statistically proven that homes sell for more during these early months of the year. Buyers are willing to pay more up front if it means avoiding rising rates.

    If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
