Working as a Realtor I often hear people say “We are going to wait and sell in the spring.”
I cannot tell you how many times I hear this. While there is nothing wrong with this I would like to point out a few examples of why it’s a good idea to sell in the winter.
Last year I was working with Brian and Sandy who had a beautiful two story home in north east Barrie. The house itself was very nice but their backyard was awesome. It was substantially larger than other properties and also had an in ground pool.
At the time we were listing the property for sale, there was a significant amount of snow to the point you could not even see that there was a pool. With some help from Brian and Sandy and a little bit of my own elbow grease, we worked together and cleared the snow so prospective buyers could see the pool and envision themselves enjoying this amazing backyard.
The market was strong and given there wasn’t as much competition as you would find in the spring market, we were able to generate multiple offers and sell the property in one week.
If you or someone you know is considering a move, contact me to find out what the current inventory looks like in your market for your type of home and if it would make sense to sell before inventory levels rise in the spring.
