Are you wondering what is the best time of year to sell your home?
The majority of sellers “think Spring” is the best time to sell their home. In the Spring, as the weather improves in Connecticut, there are many buyers in the market looking to buy a home. If they have children, they want to be in the school system before the next school year. And the perfect time of year for a buyer is the Spring. Additionally, sellers think their house would look best in the Spring because the grass is green, leaves are on the trees, flowers are in bloom and homes have the best curb appeal. The issue is that all sellers think the same way! In the Spring, there is high inventory and more competition.
The number one reason to list in the Winter is less inventory and less competition.
The second reason is that there are serious and motivated buyers in the market. They are motivated to buy which is why they are spending their time looking at homes by attending open houses or touring with their realtor. You don’t waste your time with looky-loos who are just thinking about moving and decide to take a look at your home. There are motivated buyers in the winter that are looking to purchase a home quickly..
Don’t wait! Inventory is low and demand is high. A buyer cannot buy your home if it is not on the market!
