Timing is everything when selling your home in Delaware.
In this week’s Ask the Broker video, real estate Broker Kathy Sperl-Bell discusses why this specific time of year is the best time to list and sell your home in Delaware.
Welcome back to Ask The Broker. Today’s question, when should I list my home for sale in Delaware? We are hearing this one a lot lately from our clients here in Delaware that might be thinking about listing their homes for sale. Here is our answer: President’s Day Weekend.
One of our real estate clients said: “But wait, my trees won’t be in bud, my flowers won’t be in bloom, and my lawn won’t be green. Is that a little bit early? Shouldn’t we wait till spring?”
That may make sense, but after 17 years in the business, we see a pattern every year. The traffic starts, the buyers are coming and they are coming President’s Day weekend. Especially the second home and vacation home buyers. They’ve got a long weekend, school is out if they still have children at home, and why not get a jump on all of the other people and find that perfect vacation home. Future retirees, they have a long weekend also. They can come spend a few days, get to know the area, try it on and see if the like it, and look at homes for sale.
Is now the right time for you to sell? Absolutely. Inventory is low so there is less competition. So on top of being the right time of year, inventory is low, especially inventory of the kind of homes that people are looking to buy.
But now I have a couple of questions for you:
- Do you know where you are going when your home sells?
- Can you buy your next home without selling the home you are in now?
- And if not, do you have a place to stay in the meantime?
So if you are planning to sell your home, let’s get your home listed now. If truly you are not ready, let’s get together and put a plan down on paper. There are some things that need to be done, and you can take the first step by going to our website and go look for the free home evaluation here. Then give us a call or send me an email Broker@ActiveAdultsRealty.com, and let’s get your home sold.
