There are many reasons to list your home for sale in the winter months regardless of the common belief that it is a bad time to try and sell a home. As your Real Estate Advisor I would recommend listing your property for sale in the winter and here are a few of the top reasons whyâ€¦
In the Greater Newburyport Area, 183 Properties sold between November 1 and March 1 last winter. Experts would say the number this year could be just as high.
The number of properties on the market is greatly reduced in the winter months, so you have less competition.
Many families who are relocating for their jobs, move at the beginning of the year.
Home prices in the Newburyport area are not yet on the rise so their is no guarantee that you will fetch a higher price later.
Mortgage Rates are still at all time lows and if they go up in the spring, sales could be effected negatively.
If you plan to purchase a home after you sell, you will be in a better position to negotiate a great deal.
