That old saying “the early bird catches the worm” certainly resonates when we are talking about the early phases of the home selling year.
If you’re planning to list in the coming weeks or months, have you considered the advantages of entering the market right now?
There are some real advantages.
Despite plenty of great advice to the contrary, a lot of sellers temporarily withdraw their homes from the market during the holiday season, with an eye on the busy spring market.
But the fact is that, not only do homes continue to sell in numbers during the holidays, buyers aren’t taking a break, especially this year when there are still such low mortgage rates on offer…
So those sellers who are “early birds” can really gain from this situation, with excellent buyer sentiment and much less competition, and thus more robust asking prices, than will be the case as so many other sellers arrive on the market as spring moves into sight.
There really is nothing to gain by playing a waiting game and you also risk something changing in the marketplace that means buyers may be less keen than they are right now.
And even if you simply cannot list yet, it’s never too early to engage with a top producing agent to plan ahead so that the sale happens as quickly and easily as possible when the moment arrives.
But just as not all sellers are ready to list, some agents aren’t in top gear yet and coasting along until the spring.
