The Benefits of Selling Your Home in the Winter are many.
Here are a few Excellent Reasons to do so:
Less Competition - less competition means more showings and possibly even a better offer.
Better Negotiating Power - with less homes to choose from the Buyer will make a more “realistic” offer on your home.
More Serious and Motivated Buyers - we do not get as many “tire kickers” just shopping to see what is available. Winter Buyers are looking to BUY.
Your Home May Sell Faster - the fewer homes there are on the market, the faster those that are available do sell as reported by Redfin* “Winter is the hottest time to Sell your home”
Tax Advantages - that can be realized if the Buyer purchases their home before the end of the year.
Faster Closings - Mortgage companies and Title Companies are not as busy so your file gets worked on more often and you can close sooner.
Lower Interest Rates for Mortgages - interest rates have a tendency historically, to be lower around the Holidays/end of the year.
Sold Price Closer To Your Asking Price - again, statistics show the Average Sales to List Price ratio is higher in the winter months.
Fewer Showing Interruptions - with fewer Buyers looking you are not “interrupted” as often with showings AND no late night or evening showings either.
More “touches” From Your Realtor - your Realtor may not be as busy as usual so they will have time to touch base with you more often.
Homes Appear Cozier in the Winter - with the fireplaces blazing or the pellet stoves radiating and the festive decor of the Holidays.
