We know it still looks like winter outside with snow on the ground, and conventional real estate advice might tell you to wait to list your home until spring weather decides to appear. After all, isn’t spring peak real estate season?
It’s true, spring is a great season for real estate - we can talk more about that later - but if you’re ready and your home is in listing condition, RIGHT NOW might just be the perfect time to list and sell your home. Why? Just hear us out -
- You beat the Spring Rush
Sure, green grass and blooming flower beds make your home more inviting, but by waiting to list in spring you risk having two or three similar houses for sale in your neighborhood, school district or price range. By listing now, your home is more likely to stand out. You’re also more likely to get more traffic to your open house which increases the chances of finding a buyer.
- Buyers are out there NOW!
Today’s buyers watch the market 24/7. With loads of information literally at their fingertips, they don’t care much about the time of the year. And serious buyers will understand that your home won’t show as nicely now that is does during the spring and summer months. But they probably won’t care. Most likely, they have been on the house hunting trail for months and are hungry for new inventory which gives you a captive audience.
- It’s tax season! (And that’s a good thing for you)
During tax season, interested buyers are considering their incomes, work bonuses, and starting to think the tax breaks that come with home ownership too. Many potential buyers decide right now if they are ready to pull the trigger and become homeowners. By choosing to list now, you capitalize on their enthusiasm and can look forward to smooth and speedy transaction.
It’s all about timing, and you could be timing this just right! Call a member of the BHURDinUtah team to take the next step in listing your home to beat the rush!
