Freeze! Read These Tips Before Putting Your House on the Market This Winter
Baby, it’s cold out there. The old rule of thumb is to wait until Spring to sell your house, but this isn’t your grandma’s real estate market. The power of the internet combined with a recent drop in housing inventory have kept things moving. We may have to wait until Spring for the ground to thaw, but today’s selling market is warmer than ever.
Are you ready to sell your house NOW? Don’t wait. Follow these modern tips for selling your home during the winter months:
If you’re still in doubt that your home will sell in the winter, consider the following statistic: According to 2017 data from the National Association of Realtors and Dave Ramsey, home sales in winter months shot up 4.5% over the previous year. November and December showed strong sales with a slight down-tick in January, then a rebound in February. Contact an experienced Realtor to find out how things played-out in your local market last year.
Bottom line: You can successfully list and sell your home during the colder months. You’ll have to make your home attractive to winter buyers, but you’d have to work to make your home attractive to springtime buyers anyway so you might as well list now if you’re ready. A good real estate agent will know how to market your home no matter the weather.
