3 Reasons to Sell Your Home in Winter

You’ve probably been told you should wait for spring or summer to sell your home. That's when there’s a bigger pool of buyers, and your landscaping and foliage are at the top of their game, right?

Well, wait just a minute. There are actually some compelling reasons to go ahead and sell now.

Here’s a look at three ways selling in the off-season can work in your favor:

Less Competition 

There’s typically lower inventory in winter. The basic economics of supply and demand now work for you, the seller. When there are a ton of properties for sale, even a great home can look common. But when there are fewer options on the market and a listing is in good condition, it suddenly gains an edge it may not have in the summer.

More Serious Buyers 

People who are buying in the off-season are not your typical summertime browsers. These buyers are often more serious and motivated to make a move — and do it quickly. Maybe they had a sudden career or lifestyle change. Whatever it is, they typically need a new home now. If yours is ready and waiting, it can have added appeal. 

Stress-Free Summers 

Who wants to spend all summer packing and planning a move? Some buyers want to move before the school year ends to have summer free for travel and relaxation. When your home sale is already sorted during winter, it’s smooth sailing for summer fun.
