Selling Your Home in Winter

Selling Your Home in the fall and winter months

If you’re currently in the market for new homes in Raleigh or know that is on the horizon for you as fall and winter approach, many homeowners hesitate to list their current home for sale in winter. The winter months typically are looked down upon for listing homes, and most realtors may even recommend you wait until spring. However, Royal Oaks Homes showcases why a recent study by Redfin proves that selling your home in the winter months might actually be a good thing.

While spring may be the home-shopping season for most, listing your home for sale in the later months of the year can give you the upper hand in a lot of cases. When buyers are shopping for homes in the fall or winter, they tend to have more of a sense of urgency. Redfin, an online brokerage, found that the average seller nets more than asking price during the months of December through March, than they do from June through November in an average housing market. Homes listed in winter also sold faster than homes listed in the spring, surprisingly enough.

These findings may have many people in a rush to put their home up for sale before Spring, but timing for home sales is always based on supply and demand. The best way to check your area to see when might be the best time for you to sell your home, if you aren’t on a time crunch, is to understand your local climate.

Check the number of days on the market for your city and the recently sold listings. If most homes re sitting for more than 60 days, it will be safer to hold off until spring when more buyers enter the market. However, if properties are selling quickly, then you can take that as a green light to list your home.

A few tips to help your home sell fast are:

  • Price Your Home Right. If homes are going on the market as quick as they are going off, then you have the flexibility to test the market and price it higher. However, if it is the dead of winter and the market is not as bust, it’s best to price it reasonable to draw in buyers.
  • Schedule a tune-up. Be sure the main issues buyers look at like heating and maintenance are up to speed, as well as clean gutters, air filters, and clean windows are in place. A well kept home is a home that will sell much faster.
  • Brighten your home. Often times, the winter months are gray and gloomy. Be sure to make your home warm and inviting from the minute the buyer drives up. Warm up your curb appeal with clean landscaping and cool-weather plants, and make sure chipped paint and cracked window seals are taken care of. A welcoming house will sell, even in the winter months.
