When is a good time to sell your home? The short answer is when you are ready for the reasons that are important and make sense to you. Selling a home requires extensive planning and preparation; in other words, it is a process that must fit the needs of you.
A more detailed answer to the question is that there are advantages to selling your home in the fall/winter. Considering your circumstances, you may benefit from these advantages. Buyers will always be in the market no matter when your home goes on the market. However, the property must be adequately prepared, be the sellable condition, priced at the market value, and marketed correctly.
Here is why selling your home in the fall or winter can be beneficial and make sense. Since most people - following conventional wisdom - will list their property in the spring/summer, there are fewer properties on the market. Hence, there's less competition, and in some areas, this can be very beneficial for the seller.
There are many reasons buyers decide on a specific time of the year to look for a property. We all need a roof over our heads, and buyers are also planning and looking for their financial well beings, comfort and convenience. Some buyers may prefer the fall/winter season since they do not have to compete with other buyers. It could be a job related; it could be a family-related matter like a choice of school. These are excellent reasons, and now with the school season and holidays around the corner, perhaps many serious buyers are in the market during the fall and winter. With lower competition overall and motivated buyers, It may provide the conditions to get the best price possible with the best terms possible in the current market condition and climate.
The top-performing real estate agents are always up for the challenge. However, during the spring/summer, they are busier and naturally, their attention is divided among several properties. You may benefit from the full attention of your trusted real estate agent during the low seasons.
Finally, a quicker transaction may be possible since the process itself can be done with less competition, such as getting an appraisal audit, ordering a home inspection, and a buyer's mortgage arrangement. You may access the advantages of selling your home in the fall/winter and decide it is the right move for you.
