The holidays are here! We are hustling and bustling with getting all of our family gatherings, parties, snow removal, and winter wonderland prep under way.
It is not a common response when listings a home for my clients in the late- fall that they "want to take their home off the market during winter" So, here is my honest opinion backed by facts.
- Google trends show a lowering level of national home searching in November and December with a drastic increase in January months that maintains that same level for most of the year. This is based off a 5 year reporting cycle.
- There is less supply of home sellers due to their misconception of selling during the winter, therefore a buyer will find your property instead of the ones that aren't listed.
- Lots of property comes on the market in January leading to more competition.
- Just this weekend, I got 2 properties under contract! The week before Christmas!
Finding a well rounded realtor can help you determine if listing your specific home would be a smart move this winter. Let me help you find one!
