46.2% of homes listed in the winter sold within 30 days, while 48% listed in spring sold in the same time frame.
There is less inventory during this season, which means there is more competition for buyers to find homes. More competition means more bidding wars, and typically more money for the seller in the end. However, as the weather warms, there will be more homes listed, meaning more direct competition for you if you wait until then to list.
Next, buyers are also typically more serious and motivated about finding a home in winter. Many people are relocated then, making their home search more urgent and necessary.
If you list your home because you need to buy a new home this winter, you won’t want to wait long, since interest rates have already slightly increased since November. Act now before they’re expected to shoot up even more this coming year.
