Spring is generally the most popular time of year to sell a house, but experts say you could pull in some cold hard cash by deciding to sell your home this winter.
1. Buyers Are Active
Buyers are active right now with many having waited until after the Holidays to start looking.
2. Rates Are Low
Mortgage rates are historically low, allowing those who are ready to get more home for their money.
3. Buyers Are Serious
Buyers who are looking in January and February are serious buyers.
4. You Control Showing Times
Right now, you can restrict the showings in your house to days and times that are most convenient for you, or even select virtual options. You’ll remain in control, especially in today’s sellers’ market.
5. Minimal Competition
There is minimal competition for you as a seller. There just aren’t enough houses on the market to satisfy buyer demand, meaning sellers are in the driver’s seat.
6. Declined Inventory
Over the past year, inventory has declined to record lows, making it the opportune time to sell your house.
