Why Wait Until Spring to List? The Buyers Aren't Waiting to Buy.

Charlotte home sellers, this is great advice from Chris Ann Cleland, a Realtor in Northern Virginia.  What shes's seeing in her area is definitely what I'm seeing in Charlotte - BUYERS ARE READY TO BUY!  Unfortunately, the inventory is so low, that there's not enough to choose from.  I agree with Chris - Why wait until the Spring to sell when you will have more competition?  

If you are thinking about selling your South Charlotte NC home, please call me!  I'll be happy to provide a detailed market analysis of your home's range of value, and give you great inexpensive and easy tips to make YOUR house stand out among the competition!

Thanks for a great post, Chris!  You are right on the money! 

Why Wait Until Spring to List?  The Buyers Aren't Waiting to Buy.

There is something about the transition to a new calendar year that gets everyone excited about change.  It is a time for fresh starts, new outlooks, resolutions.  And for many who want to buy a home, it's time to get out there and start looking.

Since January first, I have picked up four new buyers.  Yes, in five days my buyer roster went up by four clients.  The bad news is that there isn't much to sell these guys because many sellers are waiting until spring to list.

Why wait?  The buyers aren't.  Get your home on the market now and take advantage of not having as much competition.  You might be able to squeeze a bit more out of your home when it comes to sales price.  The more competition you have in the spring, the more competitive your price has to be to get attention.  

Spring is not always the best time to sell.  Beat the rush to market and list now.  The buyers are out here waiting for homes like yours to hit the market.
