The Best Time to List
If you’re thinking about moving, it can be hard to know when the best time to list will be. The housing market has been very unpredictable over the last few years. As we lean towards more of a buyer’s market, it’s important to think about the options you have and when the best time to sell might be.
Ultimately, ‘now’ is the best time for real estate. Having said that, take a look at the attributes of your house and when they might ‘show’ the best. The tips below could help you secure a higher price point.
Is your house ‘sell’ ready?
If it’s been a while since you painted, or have a few home renovations projects that weren’t fully complete, now is the time! A simple fresh coat of paint and finalizing home repairs can go a long way to add value to your home. A nice deep clean of the house can also help with the value of the sale.
Do you have curb appeal?
If your front yard landscaping is the envy of your neighbours, you may want to wait until the Spring to put it on the market. Beautiful gardens and a well maintained yard can really help up the price of a home. If you have a pool, selling while the pool is open can also help. Seeing how well maintained exteriors are is important to a lot of buyers.
Have you recently upgraded to make your home more efficent? Added new windows and doors that seal the cold air from getting in? This could be an excellent way to sell your house in the winter months.
Remember, most homes sell in the Spring, so you can use that to your advantage. If your house has something unique about it, listing when people are looking would be ideal. If not, listing in the off season could bring more serious and committed buyers as there is less inventory.
