Reasons to Sell Your Home

The winter months are usually the slower months when it comes to real estate.  Obviously, it’s because of the holidays and people are traveling.  This however does not mean people are not buying homes during this time.  Clients often ask whether or not December, January, and February are a good time to sell or wait.

If you are dying to sell your home or just want to test the waters, here are 3 reasons not to wait even with the holiday season approaching:

  1. The market is improving – Whether I want to believe this or not doesn’t really make a difference.  In the Washington Metropolitan area it doesn’t look as optimistic, but other markets have turned or are close to.
  2. Location – Regardless of the time of year, when a home is in a great location it is going to sell.  If you live in a popular or desirable neighborhood, there will always be demand.
  3. The Spring market is around the corner – I know the winter months aren’t even here yet, but most people that want to buy in the spring start searching for homes in the winter.  Right after the holidays is a popular time to start their home search.

Just something to think about if you’re on the fence about sticking that For Sale sign in the yard.
