Why NOW is the Best Time to Sell your House
The idea of selling your home and relocating may not be on the top of your list of things to do this summer. However, if you’ve been putting selling off, this could be the time to stop procrastinating.
That’s because now is one of the best times to sell your house. Keep reading to learn more about why you should stop delaying the sale of your home.
It’s a Seller’s Market
Home prices and sales are up in almost every market in North America right now. For that reason, it’s pretty safe to say that wherever you are it can be considered a seller’s market.
Being in a seller’s market gives you more leverage to turn a big profit when you put your home on the market. You’ll still need to check current sale prices in your area and make sure your home falls in line. You might be surprised how much you can list your home for in the current climate.
Summer Supports Sales
Spring might be considered a time of renewal for some. In the real estate market, it’s the time when most people really start shopping for houses. The nice weather also makes it it easier for buyers to visit multiple listings.
People that list their homes in the spring also tend to have shorter wait times before they sell. This combined with a seller’s market could mean you will have a quicker sale and higher price than expected.
Listings are Down
Listing your home in May and doing it in a seller’s market can help you get the most for your home. According to Zillow, there are currently fewer homes on the market than this time last year.
If your area’s listings are down below the average for the year, you may even have a bidding war on your hands.
Selling your home can be scary, but right now is an excellent time to finalize that listing. High prices and demand make spring and summer the ideal time to put your home up for sale.
If you’re thinking of selling, there’s no better time than right now.
