Things to Consider
When Selling Your House
5 REASONS TO SELL THIS SPRING
Here are five reasons listing your home for sale this spring makes sense.
1. Demand Is Strong
The latest Buyer Traffic Report from the National
Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong
throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing
and able to purchase… and are in the market right now! More often than not,
multiple buyers are competing with each other to buy a home.
Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the
Housing inventory is still under the 6-month supply that
is needed for a normal housing market. This means, in the majority of the
country, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers in
that market. This is good news for home prices. However, additional inventory
could be coming to the market soon.
There is a pent-up desire for many homeowners to move, as they were unable to sell over the last few years because of a negative equity situation. Homeowners are now seeing a return to positive equity as real estate values have increased over the last two years. Many of these homes will be coming to the market this spring.
Also, builder's confidence in the market has hit its highest mark in over 11 years. Experts are predicting that new construction of single-family homes will ramp up this spring.
The choices buyers have will continue to increase. Don’t wait until all this other inventory of homes comes to market before you sell.
You can also lock in your 30-year housing expense with an interest rate around 4% right now. Rates are projected to increase in the next 12 months.
Look at the reason you decided to sell in the first place and determine whether it is worth waiting. Is money more important than being with family? Is money more important than your health? Is money more important than having the freedom to go on with your life the way you think you should?
Only you know the answers to the questions above. You have the power to take control of the situation by putting your home on the market. Perhaps the time has come for you and your family to move on and start living the life you desire.
That is what is truly important.
