Part one of our Selling in the Winter series: Two key reasons to sell.
Many people will say the best time to sell your home is during the summer, but that’s not necessarily true. If you’re considering selling, today I’m sharing two key reasons you may want to sell this winter.
1. Less competition. Everyone puts their properties on the market in the spring and summer because it’s a little more convenient, and they think they’ll get more showings. In reality, people needing to relocate for work look during the holidays while they have time off to concentrate on it. Less competition means your home will be seen by more buyers.
2. Unique showings. Having showings during the holidays while decorations are up will accentuate some of your house’s wonderful features. It’s warm in Texas in the summer, so people are focusing on pools and outdoor areas. During the winter, people are leaving cold places for warmer climates, so placing focus on your fireplace, for example, will grab their attention. Yes, you can decorate for the holidays while your home is for sale, but tone it down so it’s not overpowering. You want buyers to be able to see the house and picture themselves living there.
