10 Reasons Why NOW is a Great Time to Sell Your Home

We are living through a life-changing time. And while we are all working hard to adapt to a new version of “normal” to get our lives back on track, it’s completely understandable to feel anxiety at the idea of jumping into something as seemingly daunting as selling your home. We’re here to help dispel some of the rumors floating around about the housing market, and to show you why NOW is truly a great time to sell.


 

1. Many potential sellers are feeling the same sense of unease, and because of that, there’s simply not as much competition as you would typically see. Your house will get shown more often to a wider audience – which means less days on the market for you.


2. Interests rates for buyers are at an all-time low right now. Many will want to take advantage of these low rates; so, we’re seeing an increase in qualified buyers who can afford more house and capture a lifestyle they’ve always wanted but could not afford until now.

3. Whether it’s working from home, making more home-cooked meals, or hosting socially distant gatherings in the backyard (or even all the above) – everyone is spending more time at home, and that may highlight the need for more space & amenities. This opens you up to new potential buyers who want what you’ve got.

4. These challenging times may shed light on the need for big changes, and that includes relocation from out-of-state. It may be to be closer to loved ones, or just to get a change of pace or vacation spot- but we are seeing a new audience coming from out-of-state.

5. Even though the economy may be suffering, the housing market is not! There is more equity in homes overall.

6. If you own a vacation rental property, it can be a hassle to keep up, especially during this time when travelling is tough and potentially risky.

7. For so many of the reasons listed here, we are seeing a wider audience of buyers. You have the chance to show your home to so many kinds of people with unique and varying needs, budgets, and lifestyles.

8. Advertising online is a breeze these days – we have virtual tours, open houses, and the ability to create a virtual solution for pretty much anything you ask for. Even meetings can be conducted over the phone or through a web-calling app!

9. Our agents are truly specialists in what they do, and they have the expertise and resources to be able to address any concerns that you may have. They are always here to help, but especially in these times of uncertainty, they will be your guide with market stats and answers to any of your burning questions.

10. We are seeing higher market values for homes, so if you’ve been thinking of selling, it’s best to strike while the iron is hot!


Now that you’ve had a chance to read our 10 reasons, have we alleviated any of your concerns about selling? We’d love to hear from you.
