What Season Is Best To Sell

What Season Is Best To Sell?

So you are ready to sell your house, but you look out the window and see several feet of snow on the ground.  Should you bother putting your house on the market in the winter, or should you wait until spring?  Is there a better season in which to sell your home?  The answers to these questions depend on a few basic factors.

Where You Live

In a place where the climate is very cold in the winter, it can be wise to wait until spring to sell, because fewer buyers will be venturing out to look at homes.  In an area where the sun shines year round, weather is not a concern, and people will have no trouble coming out to see your house.  This doesn’t mean, however, that season doesn’t matter in a warm climate!  It can still affect how many potential buyers will come out and the odds of selling.

Watch Out For The Holiday Slump

People are usually too busy from Thanksgiving through Christmas to spend much time house hunting, and in January they are often recovering financially from holiday over-spending.  Most experts will recommend that you avoid listing your home until after the worst of the holiday slump in the market is over and people are looking to buy again.  This is true no matter what the climate!

Particulars Of Your Home

If your home is near a high school, you might want to consider selling in the summer when things nearby are a bit quieter.  The noise and traffic of the school year might put some buyers off.  If your home is near a lot of fun winter activities, this might actually be a selling point that will be highlighted better in the winter months.  Looking for these details of your area and capitalizing on them will help you to get your home sold.

The season does matter when it comes to home buying, and spring is usually a good time to list.  Your REALTOR® can help you to determine what season makes the most sense for listing in your particular case, providing you with market information in your area and helping you pinpoint the particulars of your home that make it appealing in a specific season.
