When Is the Best Time To Enter the Market?

Four tips to help you time your move in our real estate market.
When is the best time to enter the real estate market? I receive many questions about this from people considering buying or selling a home. Sometimes people need to move for financial or personal reasons, which will trump any market conditions at the time. However, if you’re able to time your move, here are four things to think about that may help you decide when the best time is:
1. Market timing. There are three different types of markets: a seller’s market, a buyer’s market, and a balanced market. We’re rarely in a balanced market, and when we are, it’s not for long. As you likely know, we’re currently in an extremely strong seller’s market. 
If you’re looking to buy, you’ll have to decide if you should do so in a seller’s market. If you need to sell and buy, you’re participating in both sides of the market, so it essentially comes out even. If. ...

4 REASONS TO SELL YOUR HOUSE IN THE WINTER

The 4 Reasons to Sell your house in the Winter are simple.

1.  Supply - There are fewer sellers willing to sell their home during the cold weather months, so you have less competition.  The highest influx of your competition generally runs from February through July, so smart home sellers list when competition is low.
2.  Less Work for You! - Properly preparing your home for sale requires a lot of work up front.  During the peak real estate season, your first impression is the curb appeal and font yard.  During the Winter, there is much less to prepare and maintain.  While it's still important to give your home nice curb appeal in all seasons, there will be no landscaping or lawn care to worry about.
