Sell my home now? Or wait until Spring?

Parker & Associates is located in beautiful, sunny, Florida so one may not think that real estate transactions slow down in the "winter" months. But they certainly do in states that have a colder winter.

As we all know, many people retire to Florida so there is a connection with the colder states. Lots of people who have retired and may want to downsize and move to Florida hold off, fearing that they will not be able to sell and find a new home.

What makes this a great time to sell a home is the lack of competition. Things are busier in Florida, but if you are moving to the sunshine state and selling in a colder climate, it is a great time to be on the market. People who are looking to buy a house now are more serious and have less to look at; therefore your house has a better chance of getting sold.

So if you're thinking of selling your home, winter may be the best time for you. If you wait until the spring, you'll be met with all the other homeowner's who waited to put it on the market, causing more competition for you. If you're looking for a home in the Sarasota area, Parker & Associates is more than happy to recommend a Realtor and handle your closing. Our office is always available for referrals and for any other legal needs you may have.
