A better question is " Based on current active comparable properties and based on recent sold listings can a sale now achieve my net profit goal " Only a Realtor will be able to do the research and recommend if now is a good time to sell ?
As far our local stats:
---Inventory is down 20% From last 60 days as well as this time last year
---sales and pending sales have decreased about 10% which is to be expected as we are in the seasonal transition
Spring vs. winter selling:
pros: larger pool of buyers, curb appeal can be enhanced.
cons: larger inventory for buyers to choose from
pros: less comparable inventory on market for buyers to choose from, possible more mortgage monies available, possible less title issues and closing times, some buyers look forward to moving during holiday breaks, some buyers need to buy real estate by year end for taxes.
cons: if your rural will buyers need 4 wheel drive to see your property ( weather issues ).
I hope I have passed on some knowledge to you...
