First things first, this is a great time to sell! Here’s why!
1. A Greater Number of Serious Buyers are Looking
After Labor Day, serious home buyers are out in force previewing homes. Buyers are motivated to buy now when they have more options to view than just a Saturday during turn, some of them couldn’t get in to see their top choice while visiting on vacation. Many buyers take the opportunity to enjoy shoulder season and the holidays to shop for the perfect home.
2. Less Competition
The number of homes on the market decreases during Fall and Winter, which is a great advantage for your home since you will not have to compete with as many homes. Your house has a higher probability to make it to their top 2 or 3 options. Don’t wait until Spring, the time when most sellers put their homes up for sale and showing days are limited to turn day, especially if your home is on a rental program and you’re trying to balance both showing and renting.
3. Your Closing Process will be Faster
Due to record low interest rates, and less volume of closings, you will be able to close your house and receive your sales proceeds on time and overall generally faster during shoulder season, avoiding the frustrations of delays summertime can bring.
4. There May Never be a Better Opportunity to Move Up
Low interest rate numbers reflect a lower mortgage monthly payment making it easier to afford more house for your money. There’s no guarantee rates will not go higher. If you are looking to buy a larger house or another investment property, consider doing it now, don’t miss this incredible opportunity!
5. It’s Time to Move On
Determine the reasons why you want to sell and decide whether it’s worth waiting. Do you want to move up into a larger home or a home with more rental actuals history? Do you want to move on, or downsize? You have the power to control the situation by pricing your home to sell and preparing your home to show.
