Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving the family into a new home. But before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your existing home. The decision is a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment you’re living in. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell a home, there are several factors you should consider.
Is there a wrong time to sell?
This likely won’t come as a big surprise: some people in the real estate profession will voice a valid argument that you should avoid selling your home during the winter holiday season. Tensions run high during the holidays and budgets run low. The result? offers that do come in are often low. So as a general rule of thumb, avoid the months of December and January when selling a home.
BUT, on the other hand, if you’ve hired a highly skilled agent, one who understands the local market and complex advertising strategies, as a seller you can swing the odds in your favor and become the most visible listing in the neighborhood! Marketed well and expertly negotiated, your home will sell at top dollar even in December and January! With all those families and couples relocating to our local Myrtle Beach Real Estate market what better time to make your move and make it matter!
What is traditionally the best season for selling?
Conventional wisdom dictates that spring is the best time to sell a home. In spring, the holidays have past, the new school year is still a while away, and gardens and other outdoor spaces tend to look their best. And while spring is the season that sees the largest amount of buyers, it’s also the season when inventories are highest. This means lots of competition, so if you’re going to sell in spring, you really need to get your property to stand out with effective marketing and staging.
Which day the week is best to list my home?
According to research, Thursday is the best day of the week to list your home for sale. By listing your home for sale on a Thursday, you can make it available immediately for weekend showings. Come Saturday – the busiest day for real estate – your home will have only been on sale for two days, which is great for attracting full-price offers. In general, the shorter amount of time your home remains on the market, the higher the offer you’ll receive.
