This time of year some sellers start to think their window for selling is done until the following spring. While it is hard to argue against the fact that the warmer months of the year generate more traffic, the winter can still be a good time to sell. Here's why:
1.) There are fewer homes on the market. Since so many wait until spring to list, the numbers can often be more in the seller's favor during the winter.
2.) Most buyers serching in the winter are serious about buying. The buyers that are in the market to buy during the winter are generally looking to make a deal happen. No one wants to look at homes in below freezing weather for the fun of it!
3.) During the holidays, many people have family back in town. Some of these people may be moving back into thow and starting to look for a home. Homes on the market this time of year get a lot of attention through advertising.
So, if you are wondering whether or not to sell your house this winter, don't let the weather scare you off!
