Selling Your Home in the Winter Market

Like most parts of the country, in the Triangle area the spring market is generally the liveliest time for home sales. But here we really have a good market all year round. For one thing, the weather – even in winter – is not so harsh that it would prevent showing homes. And another point is the fact that this is an active relocation destination, so there is a continuing demand for homes.

We often talk with homeowners who ask if it is reasonable to put their home on the market in the winter months. Our answer is yes, you probably should go ahead and list your home when the timing suits you best. The main things that count for success in selling your home are the condition, location, overall appeal and asking price (as well as having the right Realtors). As always, it is important for you to put the home in very good condition and price it right. Then we will go to work for you to present it to the public in the most appealing way.

Of course, the market is not as “hot” but it’s also true that your property will be up against fewer competitors in the winter months. So your home has a good chance of being an outstanding choice for buyers who are looking at homes at that time. Also, remember that right now the mortgage interest rates are still quite low, so prospective buyers can more easily afford your home. But there is talk of rates going up in the coming year, so it could be advisable to sell your home while it is easiest for buyers to buy.

As always, there will be plenty of factors to consider. For a good friendly consultation about your situation and your property, just call us. We will be happy to go over the facts with you so you can make the best decision!
