Real Estate Sells Year Round!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Acadiana

Almost all the sellers I meet these days want to know if they should wait until the spring to list their home. I tell them all the same thing: our inventory is low right now therefore there is less competition, and we have 473 homes pending in the area, including 305 in Lafayette parish alone. Your home could be one of those. Not to mention that buyers are out looking; I've shown properties to 4 different buyers this past week.

We usually think of the spring as the season for real estate, much like we think of the spring as the season for baby animals. On our farm however, babies are born whenever they're ready and that is usually not in the spring. Two nights ago was one one of the coldest night we've had so far this year and that's when this baby calf decided it was time. Same is true for buyers. When they find the right home, they don't care what season we're in.

Calf born in the middle of winter

It is true that more real estate is bought/sold in the spring and summer but buyers buy year round, much like baby animals are born year round. If you're ready to sell, there's really no time like now to put your home on the market!

Good point - I was much busier this December than other Decembers; list when the competition is less!
