selling home in winterMost real estate agents will tell you that the best time to sell a house is during the summer and spring seasons. This is because this is the peak selling time – and they’re not wrong. However, there’s no reason you can’t sell your home during the winter season. In fact, there are actually several advantages to doing so. The following are a few ways that you can take advantage of the winter home-buying market to sell your metro Charlotte real estate:

  • Most buyers are serious – People who are house hunting during the winter are less likely to be “testing the market,” than they would be during the summer season. Anyone who is trudging through the cold weather of winter to look at houses is most likely a serious buyer, which means you won’t be wasting your time showing your house to people who were never going to commit in the first place.
  • There will be less competition – Because most sellers will wait until the summer to list their property, you’ll have less competition. Less competition means that more people will be taking a look at your house.
  • You could get closer to your asking price – Another perk of having less competition to deal with is that you don’t have to worry about other similar properties asking for less than what you’re asking for. Buyers can’t shop around as much, which means that they won’t have as much negotiating room. Not to mention that because inventory is low during the winters, buyers may end up having to compete with each other.

These are just a few of the ways in which you can take advantage of the home buying market in the winter. For more advice on selling metro Charlotte real estate, be sure to contact us at Randy Lindsay today.
