Is Now A Good Time To
Sell My Property?
I hear the same questions everywhere I go. What is the market like? Is now a good time to sell? My answer is normally the same. The market is pretty good! Generally speaking, if your house is priced right and shows well, then you should have a pretty good chance of selling your home.
Here are some things you should know:
1) Timing. One thing you will want to consider is the timing. Your agent should be able to collect all the data about whats happening in your neighborhood in today's market. After reviewing your CMA with your agent, you should be able to determine if and when would be a good time to list. You will want to consider the average DOM (Days On Market) and also the list and sold prices.
2) Does my home show better empty? In some cases, your property may show better vacant. If you are in the process of moving and you have boxes everywhere, you may want to wait to list your house. At that point, once the property is vacant, you can clean the house and do all the other prep work needed so that your home will show better. This will also make it much easier for agents to show your property.
If you are still living in the home and aren't in the process of moving, it's definitely okay to list your home for sale while you are living there.
You may be in a position where you need to sell your home today or are looking to sell in the near future. Whatever the case is, knowing the market and your plan ahead of time will help you better prepare when the time comes to list your house for sale.
