Is now the right time to sell your home?
In a September 2019 survey of housing opportunities by the National Association of Realtors, 74 percent of people said they believe now is a good time to sell a home.
And they're right. Part of the reason is seasonal. If you've been thinking about selling your house this year, listing now means a better chance of getting it sold before the holidays.
Not only will you be able to enjoy the time with your family without the stress of showings hanging over your head, but potential buyers will be motivated to get settled into their new home before the colder months.
With cooler temperatures and beautiful colors, fall is an inviting time for buyers to get out and see homes before winter sets in. Shorter days mean you'll want to choose an agent who can help you market your home effectively and show it in its best light as the days get shorter.
The other reason is related to larger trends in the housing market. With home price growth slowing and interest rates rising, you may want to think about selling sooner rather than later, especially if you have plans to move in the next couple years.
