10 Reasons You Should List Your Home Before The Spring Rush

10 Reasons You Should List Your Home Before The Spring Rush

I keep hearing the same thing over and over again, "I'm going to wait to sell my home in the spring" all while I keep seeing all the huge signs that support a higher sales price and more money net in your pocket when you list in the winter months.

Here are the 10 Reasons You Should List Your Home Before The Spring Rush brought to you by My Bellingham Real Estate.

10. Most people think they should list in March and April. So, listing ahead of time, you can be one of only a limited number of properties available.

9. Builders have really cut back on new construction inventory homes during the fall & winter, so buyers are forced to buy preowned homes.

8. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, wen more homes are on the market for less money. This could allow you to sell high and buy low. 

7. You can sell now for more money, and arrange for a delayed closing or extend temporary lease back (extended occupancy) until early next year!

6. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during the days you would prefer not to have people in the house.

5. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the holidays to capture that market!

4. Some people must buy to reinvest "tax free exchange funds" for tax reasons!

3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in the spring, there will be less demand for your particular home. More demand now means more money for you!

2. Buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the winter months and less competition for you is a good thing!

And the number 1 reason...

1. People who look at homes during the fall & winter months are more serious buyers!
