Should You List Your Home In The Winter?
Some homeowners may be hesitant to list in the winter, believing the cold weather season won’t attract many buyers or leave a positive impression of their property. While spring and summer may be the peak home shopping season, homeowners may be able to ask and get more for their home in the winter. Furthermore, some homes listed in the winter often sell faster than those in the spring!
Century 21 broker Mark Dickinson says, “there is typically much less inventory during the winter months, so the buyers have less to choose from. Quite often, if a home is priced correctly, there will be a prospect for it. We can help determine the correct price by looking at recent comparable sales and current competing inventory.”
Mark also notes, “our agents educate our sellers to place a high priority on curb appeal, such as basic landscaping and decorating to liven up the front of the home. We want to make sure we make a strong first impression – even on a gray winter’s day. Make sure sidewalks are shoveled and driveways are clean. If your home is vacant for the winter or you go on vacation, be sure to find a reliable company to keep them cleared and safe.” Sellers can also try to create a sense of warmth inside the home, such as with throw blankets in the living room and stacked wood by the fireplace.
Don’t let Old Man Winter get in the way of an opportunity to list your home while there’s less competition. Contact an experienced Century 21 Dickinson realtor for a free no obligation consultation. (218) 751-1228 or firstname.lastname@example.org
