I just sold a condo in Marina Bay mid October. There's not enough inventory there. We had (6) interested buyers and ultimately ended up with 2 offers over asking. This was despite not having available conventional lending due to pending litigation with the HOA. (Depending on what complex you're in, lending may or may not be an issue). Yes we're seeing less multiple offers but it's still a strong market in Marina Bay with more upside.
As other agents have stated, buyers will continue to look even during the holidays, investors always will and during the upcoming holiday season, they're usually serious.
Serious buyers never stop looking. I remember on many occasions, showing property day before and day after Christmas, Thanksgiving....and in the rain.....
As a matter of fact, some buyers prefer looking at this time of the year since they think there's less competition among buyers. However, we are still seeing multiple offer situations. When someone tells me that they "only" received one offer....remember, all you need is ONE very good offer. And if it doesn't meet your needs, you can always counter the offer.
By all means, go for it. Some buyers may want to buy a house just before the end of the year while rates are still low. And besides, they may get some tax benefits.
Here's a nice blog about why you should sell now....which benefit applies to you?
If you live in a community where schools are the driving factor for most home buyers than selling after the start of the school season might be discouraged. But if you live where the buyers are empty nesters or the type of buyer is less concerned about schools then selling past labor day might not have any impact.
