Pros And Cons Of Selling A Home In The Winter

Pros And Cons Of Selling A Home In The Winter

Should I wait till the Spring to sell my house? This is the most asked question I receive from home owners. In my opinion, I believe there are pros and cons when it comes to listing in the winter.


Pros

- Less Competition. Less inventory brings greater demand and top dollar. 

- Buyers are motivated. Not everyone wants to buy a house in the winter, but those that due tend to be extremely motivated. They aren't nosy neighbors or looky- loos.

- Relocations happen all year and January tends to be one of the biggest months.  

- Fewer Showings. I know this sounds counter-productive but, you will get more quality than quantity buyers. 


Cons

- Bad weather makes landscaping less appealing

- Buyer pool is generally smaller. 

- Less daylight for showings.

- Changing schools mid-term can be challenging on kids.
