If you have plans to sell your home before the end of the year, it's not too late. The warmer months are prime selling time, when the most buyers are out looking at homes. Just because you didn't have your home on the market by summer, doesn't mean you can't sell this year, but you'll want to think about getting it on the market sooner rather than later.
With the colder months and holidays fast approaching, the challenges of selling a home will only increase.
The holidays can be a difficult time to sell your home as buyers are often traveling or busy with holiday shopping and activities. It can also be difficult to keep your house ready to be seen at a moment's notice when you are busy with holiday preparations.
The number of potential buyers looking at homes generally decreases during this time of year. Those buyers who are still looking may believe that a seller with their home on the market at this time of year is more motivated to sell and may make an offer that's lower than your asking price.
The bottom line is this: Some months may be better than others for getting your home on the market, but if you're looking to sell don't feel like you have to wait until spring. At Harnish Properties, we have years of experience and a strong understanding of the Lake Oswego community and the seasonal selling cycles. We can help you sell your home for the right price no matter what the season.
