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.
