Lower inventory a plus for winter sellers
The real estate market traditionally heats up in spring. However‚ listing a home in winter may bring a financial windfall for the seller.1 Here is why:
- Less competition. Fewer homes for sale can mean buyers have less choices.
- Cold-weather features are showcased. Such as roofs designed to handle harsh weather or shorter‚ low-maintenance driveways. Newer heating systems and fireplaces can also spark interest.
- Serious buyers. Winter house hunters tend to be more serious in their searches. When the right property is found‚ they often act quickly.
