Did we miss the market?

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302

I have a listing going live in a week or so that I started talking to back in May of this year. Since our first meeting, the Sellers have been trying to close on a new build home that for many reasons kept getting delayed. Had it closed on time, we would have been able to list their other home right in the Spring-Summer busy season. Alas, it was not to be.

So they asked, have we missed the selling season? Short answer, yes. Longer answer, it really does not matter. Other than taking a bit longer to sell, as long as the home is ready for showing and is priced right, the season really does not concern me. What we will do is what we always do when we market a home. We follow a pretty rigorous marketing plan that gets homes sold.

Every season for real estate offers opportunities and challenges. Look for an agent who understands these nuances when deciding to sell your home.

Good morning Peter. Great reminders. Houses sell all year long, but the type of buyer out there will vary with time of year, with families with children dominating the spring and early summer market.

Hello Peter - sellers who want to best "time" their home for marketing it for sale will likely realize that "perfect" does not exist in real estate or in real life.  Good luck and may the right buyer step forward.
