List now and sell in the spring!
It is commonly thought that fall into winter is not a good time to list your home for sale, and that one should wait until spring to list their home on the market. Even though home sales tend to pick up in volume during the spring and summer months, it doesn’t always mean that it is the best time to list your house for sale.
Since most people think that spring and summer are the best times to list, that’s what most people will do. Spring will come and homeowners will list which drives up inventory and lowering prices to beat out the competing properties.
A home will sell better when there is scarcity in the market. With fewer choices, the probability of your house selling is higher.
Qualified buyers tend to be more serious at this time of year. Generally, folks who view homes at this time of year tend to be more relaxed and sure. This normally creates a positive negotiation leading to a smooth transaction.
Summer plans and school schedules can create a rush for those needing to buy during the summer. The time constraint can create a feeling of pressure which can often stress a situation.
People come to Fort Smith to visit family or friends for the holidays. There are a few of them who are looking to relocate. Many of these folks are coming back from larger markets to enjoy a slower pace of life.
If you have a good property that has been well maintained and priced in the market, it doesn’t matter what time of the year you list it, it will sell. Don’t let the holidays be an excuse to hold you back from making the move. Who wants to move in the heat of summer anyway?
