Benefits of Selling A House in the Winter

Even though the weather is getting cooler, the housing market is still HOT!  If you are wanting to sell, don’t let the excuse of winter stand in your way!  Here are a couple of reasons why you should sell this winter:

  • Motivated buyers: While more buyers are looking in the spring and summer months, the buyers actively shopping for a new home in the winter are likely very motivated — often moving because of a job relocation, change in financial situation, or change in family needs.

  • Less seller competition: With fewer homes on the market in winter, there’s less competition from other sellers, and a limited inventory for buyers.

  • More time off work: People tend to take time off work during the winter, and three-day weekends like MLK Day and Presidents Day can be popular home shopping days. As a seller, it also means more options for showings and open houses!

  • More attention from agents: When agents have fewer listings, sellers receive more of their undivided attention. The same goes for buyers’ agents — they have more time to arrange showings and negotiate deals.

  • Tax benefits: Buyers looking to purchase homes before the end of the year for tax purposes find December listings ideal.
