Real estate experts at Keeping Current Matters (KCM) have outlined compelling reasons to list a property now to take advantage of eager buyers and limited competition. Expert agents with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty back up those reasons. Read on …
Only Serious Buyers Are Out—At this time of year, only those purchasers who are serious about buying a home will be in the marketplace. You and your family will not be bothered and inconvenienced by mere “lookers.”
There Is Far Less Competition—Housing supply shrinks at this time of year, making the choices for buyers more limited. Don’t wait until later in the fall, when all the other potential sellers in your market will put their homes up for sale.
The Process Will Be Quicker—The slower market means that banks are not inundated with purchase and refinancing loan requests—cutting timelines and frustration levels for buyers and sellers.
There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move-Up—Prices are projected to appreciate by more than 25 percent from now to 2018. If you are moving to a higher priced home, it will wind up costing you more in raw dollars (both in down payment and mortgage payment) if you wait.
