Many people think that putting their West Knoxville or Farragut home on the market during the fall and winter is just a bad idea all around. The market slows down. There are no buyers looking for homes. And, the cold weather and holidays making moving difficult and just plain old miserable. In theory, those reasons may sound just about right if you are thinking about selling your West Knoxville or Farragut home. But, have you ever thought of the flip side? What are the advantages of selling your West Knoxville or Farragut home in the fall or winter?
Here are a few reason why it could be a good time.
The people looking to buy are serious. People are always buying houses, regardless of what the market is doing, regardless of the time of year, regardless of the weather. Those buyers looking in the fall and winter are doing it out of necessity. Perhaps, they are relocating here. Perhaps, their lease is up. Regardless of the reason, these buyers are looking to buy. The question is: will your West Knoxville or Farragut home be on the market for them to buy?
There are less homes on the market, so there is less competition. During the fall and winter months, the inventory of homes for sale tends to shrink. So what do you have to lose? If there is less competition, why wouldn’t you try? The stellar selling point of your home will shine much brighter with less competition.
The time is right for you now. Trying to time the market is difficult. A competitively priced home will sell in any market. If now is the time that feels right to sell your home, there should be nothing holding you back. Would it really benefit you to wait until the spring? As a seller, you will still face the same difficulties, just with more competition.
