Selling Your Home During WinterPosted Tuesday, December 22, 2020
Selling your home during winter may seem like a daunting task. You may be thinking, who in the world is going to go look at houses in the winter? Turns out a lot! From December 2019 to February 2020 over one million homes were sold in the United States. So, if you’re wondering about whether or not you should put your house on the market this winter, the answer is yes! Check out these tips and advantages of selling your home during winter from the experts at The Sharon Falco Group.
Less Houses for Sale
Many home sellers typically wait until May to put their house on the market since it’s warm and pretty outside. If you follow this pattern of waiting until spring, your home could get lost in the thousands of other houses for sale in Chicago and the surrounding areas. Buyers looking for houses for sale during the winter months will have fewer listings to choose from. This could result in your house selling much faster than if you had waited until spring.
More Time Online
Did you know the average person spends an average of 6 hours browsing the internet on any given day? During the winter months that number only increases with everyone bundled up inside with nothing to do but watch TV and browse the internet. Nowadays, the majority of home buying starts online. Buyers are constantly searching for new homes for sale and when the temperature falls, the search only raises.
Warm and Cozy
Wintertime in Chicago can be brutal. The piles of snow, heavily salted roads, and the harsh freezing wind send a chill as you quickly try and get inside. But nothing is better than walking out from the cold and into a warm and cozy home, especially during the Holidays. A warm, well-decorated house makes a house feel more like home. This presents a huge advantage for sellers getting buyers out of the cold and into a new home in the wintertime. So, if you’re selling your home this winter, crank up the fire in the fireplace, show off your baking skills with some fresh cookies, toss some Christmas tunes on and watch as your home sells faster than ever.
