Is it time to sell your home? Maybe you are heading into January realizing you need to sell your home or that it’s time to relocate? Either way, many people believe winter is a terrible time to sell a home in Raleigh. However, that’s simply not the truth!
Our team at Raleigh Cary Realty works with our clients to accomplish their real estate goals regardless of the time of year.
3 Reasons why selling a home in the winter is a great time:
- Less competition: Many families will wait to sell their homes in the spring market which means there is less inventory during the winter months and your home could even sell for more. With fewer homes on the market for buyers to choose from, there is competition for the homes available. This leads home values to increase in price.
- Baby boom: September is a common month for couples to find out that they are expecting. After a few months, many couples begin to evaluate their current living situation including storage and schools in the neighborhood. This leads many couples to begin searching after Christmas in the winter months.
- Only serious buyers: Due to the fact that it is so cold, only serious buyers typically come out to shop for homes. It eliminates those wandering around just because it’s a nice warm day with nothing to do. This becomes even truer with the current COVID environment we live in. This is great for families who are concerned about having a lot of people in and out of their homes for showings.
