The #1 Reason to Not Wait Until Spring to Sell Your House

November 30, 2018

Housing supply traditionally shrinks at this time of year, so the choices buyers have will be limited. The chart below was created using the months’ supply of listings from the National Association of Realtors.

As you can see, the most exposure naturally occurs in the late fall and winter months from November to February.

Temperatures are not the only thing that heats up in the spring, so do listings!

In 2017, listings increased by nearly half a million houses from December to June. Do not wait for these listings to come to market before you decide to list your house.

Added Bonus: Only Serious Buyers Are Out in the Winter

At this time of year, only those purchasers who are serious about buying a home will be in the marketplace. Mere ‘lookers’ will not disturb you and your family. Lookers are at the mall or online doing their holiday shopping.
