It’s true that many home shoppers stop looking during the winter, and there are several reasons why. Some don’t want to go on home tours when the roads are slick, others want to wait until more homes come on the market in spring, and many don’t want to change their children’s school mid-year. However, those who do need a home during the winter season are the most serious, often looking to move because they need to, not because they want to. This can put the seller in an advantageous position if they are flexible with the timing.
There are plenty of people who need to buy a home in the winter, whether it’s because of a job relocation or major family change, like a new baby. These buyers want to get into a home quickly, and are sometimes willing to pay top dollar
An anticipated rise in mortgage rates is another reason why it may be advantageous to list your home this winter.
