Today is the Best Time to Sell Your House -- 5 Reasons Why

Real Estate

Summer Ends September 23rd -- So there is still time!

Are you thinking about selling your house?  Have you had conversations with family and friends about planning to sell your Wisconsin (Kenosha or Racine) house?  While the real estate market can be unpredictable, statistics indicate the months of August and September offer several advantages for sellers.

Timing plays a crucial role in maximizing your sale price.

There are many reasons to list your house in Wisconsin now.  Below I will share with you my Top 5 Reasons.

Buyer Demand

Buyers are still seriously looking for a home and want to get settled before Thanksgiving and Christmas visit us again. The competition has been rough this year and many buyers have taken a break but are jumping back in and want to give it another GO - Now, before the Fall and Winter seasons are upon us.

Sale Price

Your pricing strategy is very important.  When priced right (competitively) it welcomes prospective buyers who are serious about buying and sets the stage for a potential bidding war.  Need to get a ballpark idea of what your home is worth right now?   What is My House Worth? 

Housing Inventory is Still Low

When supply is low and demand is high, selling your house can be profitable. The total inventory of for-sale homes in the USA remains relatively low.

Find Your Why?

Determine from these typical reasons below why now is the time to sell:

1.  I am ready to downsize

2.  I need to upsize

3.  My home's value has grown

4.  I need to relocate for a New Job or due to other Life Change

5.  I want to sell a second or inherited home

6.  I could pay cash for my next home

7.  I can't afford to keep my home

Curb Appeal and Landscaping

This can include anything from basic lawn care and fresh mulch to new walkways, exterior paint, and upgraded front doors and garage doors.  Not only does enhanced curb appeal get more eyeballs on your home in a shorter amount of time, it may also yield as much as $12,000-$15,000 in estimated resale value.

Selling Your House

If everything in your life is lining up, and you are ready to make a move, then now is certainly not a bad time to sell your home!  That said, the traditional selling season every year is summertime.

What is My House Worth?

A sure way of knowing what to do in your particular situation is to partner with a top agent who can guide you through the moving waters of a changing housing market -- whether you are buying or selling.  I am here and available and ready to chat!

Diana Dahlberg homes are getting top dollar here in CT.  Our inventory is super low, so house are flying off the market.

George Souto our homes are doing well too -- IF -- we can get a listing.  Sellers are still very hesitant in listing their homes for fear of not being able to find suitable housing due to the shortage and because they don't want to pay the higher interest rates.  Glad your doing well!  Have an awesome finish to 2023!

The market is so hot, that even if the home is not perfect as long as it is priced for condition and has potential it will sell quickly.

I am finding the very same thing here in SE Wisconsin Ed (Edward) Silva, 203-206-0754  ... and that's why I am hoping my blog will bring an awareness to some sellers in my area who are considering taking the plunge!  It is a win/win for sellers in this market!  As long as they find their WHY!
