5 Ways To Pick The Time To Sell
I just read this informative article on Trulia that is based on their internal statistical data and is based on the calendar to help a person sell their home at the right time.
1. The Academic Calendar
Many people with school age children find it most convenient to start the home sale process in the Spring time so they can transfer schools at the end of the school year if that is necessary. Many buyers are also present at this time to get into a home before the fall school season starts.
2. The Tax Calendar
Newly graduated professionals often try to buy a home during the fall and the end of the year as they find their tax bills have substantially increased with their new large incomes. So if you have a starter home, this may be a good time to sell a home or even a condo or townhouse.l
3. The Weather Calendar
Typically Spring brings out the multitude of buyers as the season begins to warm and the weather is more inviting. In our area, this is the dominant time for buyers and often means more competition. However, it also depends on the speicifics of your home, such as it is known that homes with swimming pools sell better in summer and homes with flowery gardens sell better when the garden is in full bloom.
4. The Holiday Calendar
December is the slowest home selling month as well as November since everyone is concentrating on the holiday season. This makes it very hard for those buyers who are looking to buy a home and do so at this time of year. I have another article about the benefits of selling in the winter months.
5. The Gregorian Calendar
Most people will make financial resolutions in January and the early part of the year is when many of people are focused on money. Some may find their tax situation to be rather daunting as the economy is improving, and others may be considering buying into a bigger home to fit their family needs.
These are just some ideas to consider when you are thinking about selling your California home. Of course, right now there are more buyers looking for homes than the number of available homes for sale.
However, you can really help yourself reduce the stress of selling your home and take advantage of the experience and knowledge that a Realtor can share to help you sell your home faster. I have been selling homes in the Livermore Dublin Pleasanton area for over 20 years and have seen the market swings. I really enjoy wiorking with my clients to help ease the pain of a home sale and work hard to make it the smoothest transition.
