Here are some compelling reasons as to why now is a great time to sell.
Before you decide to put your house on the market, you need to understand your “why”—what is the primary motivation you have for selling your home right now? Every single person who currently has their home on the market has a strong motivation around selling their largest financial asset. If you can’t find good motivation, then you should just stop right there.
What are some common seller drives?
Perhaps you lost a job, got a big raise, or just want to sell to free up some cash flow for other reasons, like putting your kids in a better school. It could be that your dream home is in reach now that interest rates are at an all-time low. Some qualified buyers are able to lock in rates below 3%, which is unheard of. Though prices have remained strong, low interest rates have actually reduced the cost of homeownership. It’s a perfect time to upgrade. Finally, there are a host of personal reasons you may have; your kids may be moving out of the house after graduation, or you may have just welcomed a new child to the family.
“If you can’t find good motivation,
then you should just stop right there.”
Even though we’re heading into the holiday season, it’s still a fantastic time to sell. Many people think that nobody will be selling now, but truly some of our best months have come toward the end of the year. Some people have to move before the new year for work-related reasons, others have to sell before year’s end to take advantage of huge tax benefits, while others still use the holiday break to switch school districts.
As I mentioned above, interest rates are incredibly low, and that means buyers who previously faced barriers to entry can now jump into the market and shop for the home they’ve always wanted. That creates an awesome opportunity for you as a seller to get the most money for your home in the quickest time possible. Our lack of inventory is causing homes to sell like hotcakes; as long as they’re priced correctly and marketed well, they’ll fly off the market in no time.
So, when you combine all those factors, it becomes clear to see that right now is a fantastic time to sell—if, and only if, you already have a strong motivation to do so.
