If you have been thinking about selling your home, you may be asking yourself some questions. You’re probably wondering how you can make the most for your home or when is the best time to list. As your trusted real estate agent, I can assure you that the time is now. Here are two reasons why you should consider selling sooner rather than later.
Current Demand is High
Supply and demand are what push prices to increase. While Spring is normally the best time to sell your home, it looks like Punxsutawney Phil was wrong and the season is coming early. According to Inman News, “Home shopping season appears to already be in full swing!” According to the ShowingTime Showing Index, December 2021 was the most active December in five years and showings were at an all time high. If you’re thinking about selling, it’s best to strike while the iron is hot and demand is still through the roof.
Housing Supply Remains Low
A recent report from realtor.com states that the current number of listings on the market is the lowest we’ve seen for January since 2017. What does this mean for you as the seller? Low inventory means high competition for buyers. High competition will drive the price up. You could very well receive multiple offers for your home and have the option to pick the one that makes you the most money.
The good news is that even though we are in a time of low inventory and high prices, home sales are skyrocketing. The market is hot and more people are buying than ever.
My advice? Take advantage of today’s competitive market and list your home. As your trusted real estate professional, I know the market better than anyone and can help you make the most for your home. If you are thinking about listing, contact me to get started.
