Less Competition – It is a known fact that spring is the busiest time of the year for home buyers and sellers. But, that doesn’t mean you won’t be successful selling your home during winter.
Because fewer people opt to put their home on the market in the winter, there will be less competition, meaning fewer options for buyers. If buyers are serious, the law of scarcity states that these buyers will become much more interested in your home,
with fewer options they will be forced to consider every home. Unlike in the spring when there’s an overwhelming number of options.
Year-End Bonuses – The holidays and end of the year are favorite times for companies to give out bonuses. It is a time when people are sitting with more cash than they usually have. And,
if they have been saving for a home for a while that might be the extra cushion they needed to be able to start seriously searching.
New Families Needing More Space – September is the most popular month for babies to be born in the US. That means that come winter, there are a lot of new parents or expanding families
that are looking for more space for their growing family.
Serious Buyers – Not everyone that is looking at homes online and attending open houses is dead set on moving. They may be window shopping for their future options. But, winter buyers
are serious buyers. Moving isn’t easy, and if you add snow and freezing temperatures into the mix, it must say you are ready to move.
Winter Readiness – Winter will show your homes true strength. If you have a south facing driveway, it will show off faster-melting snow. Your siding and roof will show its durability as
it has withstood earthquakes, freezing rain and snow the last two months. Homeowners won’t be surprised by their new home when they know it can tough out the hardest months in Alaska.
