Winter Home

Elk Grove home sellers and real estate agents have often worried about the winter months because it seems like an undesirable time to list a home for sale. The truth is that winter can be an excellent time to sell your Elk Grove home.  Check out the top 3 reasons that selling your home in winter or during the holiday season may benefit you:

Less Inventory

Conventional wisdom tries to say that taking your  Elk Grove home off the market in winter, or waiting to list until the spring selling season starts is the best way to sell your home. The truth is that if you are trying to sell your home in Elk Grove, wouldn’t you rather list while the competition is less? 

Higher Prices  

With the end of the summer season, homes are often removed from the market because the sellers mistakenly believe they need to wait for the spring. But when listings flood the market in April, prices can go down as a “buyers’ market” takes hold and inventory increases. This is the classic story of "supply and demand".

Serious Buyers

Buyers in the winter also tend to be more serious about a home purchase. The holidays are a time to relax and enjoy family and friends. In real estate, studies show that if a buyer is out looking for a new home during these months, they have a reason to move, which tend to create better offers.Home sellers in Elk Grove and Sacramento can enhance their ability to capitalize on the slower pace and smaller inventory by listing their homes for sale now. Winter is the perfect time to get the highest possible sales price while the competition is drinking pumpkin-spice latte and waiting for the spring.
