Winter Wonderland – Now May be the Time to Sell Your Home

Winter Home Sales

At my office Christmas party last month I was talking with several other agents all with buyers and little inventory to show them.  It got me thinking while spring and summer may the conventional time to sell your home, don’t discount winter home sales.

Like so many things in life, finding the best time to sell a house or list that Springfield, MO real estate is complicated.  Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t wait until the ground has thawed to hammer in that For Sale sign.

Less inventory = more attention

Because a lot of people don’t want to list their homes around the holidays, there are very few homes to buy at the start of a new year.  That doesn’t mean there aren’t still potential buyers on the prowl, and there is less competition.  If your house is the only game in town, you’re likely to have a lot more interest than in spring when the market is saturated.

Buying a Home in Today’s Market

Home Buying in Today's Market

We hear a lot about how hot the real estate market in Springfield, MO is, but what does that mean for a buyer?  Does that mean it is a bad time to buy?  Not at all, with the low-interest rates available, now is a great time to buy that move up home.

Finding a new home is both exciting and nerve-racking at the same time.  It is hard enough to find the perfect home, now you also have to worry about getting it under contract before someone else swoops in and buys it.  With homes selling quickly, buyers are missing out on their dream homes because someone else got their first.

For buyers, this can mean a change of how you approach home buying.  A good start is spending more time upfront figuring out what you need in a new home versus what you want.  This will help you find your dream home quicker so you don’t miss out.
