Why selling your Silver Spring or Takoma Park home this winter may be the best, most lucrative route to take if you want to sell this year!

While some sellers think about taking their home off the market in the winter, believing spring or
summer would deliver better results, I would caution against this thinking. Here are three reasons why:

 

  1. Those home shopping in the winter tend to be more qualified buyers. Often they have to buy a house, or they wouldn’t be facing bad weather and shorter daylight hours to find just the right place.

 

  1. Many people wait to list their home in the spring or summer, meaning available inventory in the winter months is lower.  Are you certain you want to face a market flooded with freshly listed homes?

 

  1. There’s no guarantee the spring or summer will be a better housing market. A variety of factors can influence home values.  What if there’s more inventory and prices have dropped?

 

Right now could be a better time than Spring to sell your Home.   There are buyers out there, and I would hate to see you miss out.  The ultimate decision is yours, but as a professional I like to give the best possible advice, based on my experience and the statistics about buyers in winter months.

There are a lot of people who need a home "right now" and are unable to wait till spring or summer.
