Selling Your Home In Winter
When is the best time to sell my home? That question comes up many times from customers and sometimes even strangers (when they find out I’m a real estate agent). You would think the answer is straightforward. Spring. Although it’s true that you have more buyers in the market in spring, so is there more competition. According to Realtor Magazine spring just squeaks out winter as the best time to sell your home. A study by real estate brokerage Redfin reveals that in the Winter months there are fewer homes on the market and buyers often need to move so they are ready to close quickly and less likely to make a lowball offer. Although, in New Hampshire the severity of our weather can dictate how the market does during the winter months, if you are adventurous and looking to stay busy in the cold, dark winter days, prepare your home to sell and get it on the market before your competition.
