We are often asked, when is the best time to sell a home. Our answer is always the same. It depends on your personal situation. Are you selling your home because you would like to buy a larger home? Do you have a job opportunity in another part of the Country? Do you want to downsize? Do you want to sell your home because you want to move to the beach?
There are a lot of reasons why someone decides to sell their home. Selling a home is a big decision to make so deciding on when is the best time to sell depends on many different reasons.
Other Reasons Why Selling your Home Now Makes Sense
- The Inventory in North Park is at an all time low. Taking advantage of the law of supply and demand works in your favor right now as it creates the Sellers Market that we are experiencing. The best time to sell something when there is a high demand for something and the supply of that item is low. We are working with lots of Buyers that are searching for a home but don’t have much to choose from. If you list your home in this current market, you will not have as much competition from other sellers. This will ultimately create home price appreciation when buyers flock to your home.
- Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, the Mortgage Bankers Association and the National Association of Realtors, all say that mortgage rates will continue to rise over the next four quarters. This typically slows down home prices from escalating as home buyers will have less buying power.
