I would agree. It is always a good time to sell, but everybody is different.

First. You need to look at the reason why you want to sell... I.E. Need to upgrade, downgrade, need to move for a job, etc

Second. Do you have equity in your current place? or do you need to come to closing with money? This can be hard as values are lower then they have been during the early 2000's.

Third. Do you plan to buy a new home as well? This is key. If you are selling at a lose you can make up the loss by buying at a discount.

There are many factor in selling and when is a "good" time is different for everybody. You need to look at where you are and where you would like to be to determine if today is a good time for you.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thanks again

Yes! It has traditionally been my most productive time of the year. Many sellers make the mistake of taking their homes off of the market during this time. Therefore, much less inventory for buyers to choose from . And traditionally, the buyers that are out there right now usually are the serious ones that really need to purchase a home.

Less inventory.
Serious Buyers
Low interest rates

All make a great combination for a fantastic time to sell.

Yes it is Lou. There is a lack of inventory and you will be successful. Find a Realtor you are comfortable with and perhaps interview a few people. Find out how they intend to market your property, price it correctly and get good photos and it will sell.

Now is a great time to sell! Rates are still low and it is a seller's market. We have too many buyers and not enough homes for sale. So, Call Me Today, and ask for a Comparative Market Analysis - it's free, and it will tell you what your home is worth in today's market.

Hi Lou,
The best thing to do is to contact a couple Realtors in your area and ask them for a comparative market analysis. They will look at recent sales within the past 6 months within 1 mile of your home and let you know the market value. Then you can determine if it is in your best interest to sell. Remember, these days you might not make what you want on the house you're selling, but you're likely to save a lot on the one you're buying.

Good Luck!
