The Wise Home Seller

Should I list my home in the winter?

Should I List my Home in the Winter?

Smart planning now will yield strong results for the wise home seller in 2013.  Many homeowners, who plan on selling in the Spring, often consider the time period between April and June as target dates for listing their home.  Conventional wisdom is that most buyers begin their search once Spring officially arrives.  In addition to that perception, sellers reason that their property shows at its best during these months.

The Reality

There are at least three realities that fly in the face of that logic.  Firstly, most everyone else’s property looks its best during this time period also.  Secondly, many buyers have already made a purchasing decision once Spring officially rolls around.  Additionally, a great deal of others have already moved on to different pursuits, i.e. spring cleanup, the beach, golf, etc.

Consider our Real Estate Timeline and watch where the market heats up.

The greatest number of buyers are looking to purchase homes during the months of February through May.  By June, many of them have disappeared.  Follow our real estate timeline above in order to procure the most number of buyer prospects for you home.
