Selling Your Home During The Winter

  • Buyers looking in winter months are serious
  • No need to worry about your yard work. Snow makes it look fresh and white.
  • Less listing inventory on the market, means less competition. Higher selling price.
  • Easier time of year for closing transactions. Lenders, inspectors, lawyers not as busy. Less errors and higher level of service.
  • Buyers begin the search and purchase for spring moves in January, February. Busy move times are March spring break, April Easter, May long weekend.
  • Less choice for buyers means less sellers to play pricing against each other. Buyers willing to make more concessions in their buying decision.
  • Property shows well, almost staged with holiday décor adding to the ambience.
  • Little chance of quick showings and not being prepared to show your home. Easier time of year to make appointments and give sellers advance notice.
  • Everyone lists their home in the spring. Go ahead and beat the rush
  • Good time of year for school, work switches and transfer corporate moves
  • People are in the spending and buying mood in the winter, holiday seasons
  • You might miss that right buyer, right place, right time being off and timing the market
