When is the best time to sell your house?
Okay, so you're ready to take the plunge and sell your house. When is the best time to sell? The following factors determine the best time to sell a house:
1. List your home for sale in the optimal housing market-
Right now in Spokane, WA it is a sellers market. We have more buyers than inventory so you will most likely receive multiple offers that are possibly over asking price. You can sell your home quickly and for the right price. If you don't know if it is a sellers market just reach out to me or any other agent at Haven Real Estate Group and we can go over the current market trends with you.
2. Local job growth-
It is important to stay informed on the incoming businesses in your area. In Spokane, we have the potential to see a huge influx of job seekers filtering in because of Amazon and other large businesses that are settling down. As rental rates rise here in Spokane these job seekers are more and more interested in locking down a home of their own instead of an overpriced apartment that can barely fit you and your dog.
If you are lucky enough to pick the season you sell your home in, you should definitely pick spring into summer. School is out for the summer and with tax returns in their pockets, buyers are eager to find a home and settle down before winter hits. With that being said, I would also suggest listing your home right before fall is over and the snow starts to fly. Buyers are trying to lock down a home before school starts and this creates a certain urgency that might come in handy to you the seller. Even with winter being the slowest months for home sales dont cancel it out. People still have job transfers and family situations that force them to move even in the dreaded winter.
The market is always changing, keep a reliable agent on your side and ask questions about your unique situation. Haven is here for you!
