Sell Your Home Before Spring Arrives, No Matter What The Groundhog Said Today!
Puxatawney Phil predicted we'll be having an early spring. Of course the odds are 50/50 if we really will see an early spring. But should you take Phil's word for it and wait to put your Charlotte area home on the market for sale when the spring selling season arrives? Or should you sell your home BEFORE spring, whenever it does arrive? The video below will tell you why no matter the groundhog's predictions this morning, you should sell your home BEFORE spring arrives!

The Charlotte Housing Market Remains Strong & Inventory Levels Remain Low
There is still a severe shortage of home listing inventory in the Charlotte area. Charlotte region ended 2019 with just 1.7 months of inventory of homes (which was down from 2.4 months in 2018). Closed sales were up 5.9% at year end, pending sales were up 8.9% in 2019. Inventory of homes was down 23.9% at year-end 2019. Demand for homes is outpacing availability of homes.
Also, keep in mind that the supply of homes for sale dramatically increases every spring and so does the competition for buyers, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Putting your home on the market now, rather than waiting for increased competition in the spring, might make a lot of sense. The best time to sell is when there is the least competition. That guarantees you a better price and fewer hassles in the transaction.
And don't forget, winter home buyers are very motivated purchasers and they want to buy now. With limited inventory currently available, home sellers are in a great position to negotiate.
