Many people are asking me if the Covid situation is still having an effect on the real estate market. I see that we have a shortage of listings. I feel like many sellers are holding off
Selling Your Home During Winter In Hillsboro MO
Although you may think spring is the best time to sell your home that is not always the case. Homes sell throughout the year. There are even some advantages to selling your home in the winter months. Many sellers and agents are under the impression that spring is the best time to sell so they will wait till then to list. With many sellers waiting to list, that creates a shortage of homes and there will be less competition for you in the winter months. When it is cold out the buyers that are looking are usually very serious, they need a house. You may have less showings but the showings you have will be buyers in need of a home now.
If you do list in the winter and it is around a holiday, make sure you don't overdo it with the decorations. Some tasteful decorations will look good and add to the beauty of your home. A fire going in the fireplace, if it is safe to do so, will also give your home a warm and cozy feeling. With it getting dark earlier in the winter, your home will look inviting if you leave plenty of lights on in your home.
Anytime you list try to accomodate the showing request. If you turn down a showing, they may never come back and that could have been the one to make an offer. The longer it takes to sell your home, the more chance of you getting a below list price offer for your home.
When you are ready to list, or just have questions about listing call The Robyn Johnson Team from Re/Max One 314 680 3030 or 636 938 3530
