When to Sell Your Home

Selling a Home? Hesitation Could Cost You.

Whatever area you reside, you may feel that spring is the ideal market time to feature your home. Your manicured lawn, trimmed shrubs and freshly painted front door will greet homebuyers, entice them to enter and buy. What about all your neighbors who are thinking your same thoughts? There may be two to three times the competition of comparable homes on the market in your very area. Why not think outside the box...clean, stage and get your property on the market now!

Waiting can cost you a lot more money...more homes on the market, can mean competitively lower pricing. If you are purchasing another home, prices may have increased beyond the current levels. You may lose money on the sale of your current home while having to pay more on your next home...all because you waited for spring.

You might also want to think about the current interest rates and the fact that the low rates bring more buyers into the market, increasing your home sale price. We know the rates we now have, but not the spring rates. Higher rates could squeeze out a few more buyers, thereby lowering your sales price. Higher rates will cost you more on the buying side...think about it...
