Are you making plans and thinking about what you want to achieve before the year ends? One of those key decision points could be whether or not you want to move this year. Does the location, or size of your current home still meet your needs? Are there enough homes for sale in Moon Township PA or other Western PA areas? Finding a house that better suits your lifestyle may be a top priority for you. But with today’s cooling housing market, is it really a good time to sell your house, or should you wait?
Here are three reasons you may want to consider selling before the holidays.
1. Get One Step Ahead of Other Sellers
Typically, homeowners are less likely to list their houses toward the end of the year. That’s because people get busy around the holidays. They deprioritize selling their house until the start of the new year when their schedules and social calendars calm down.
Selling now, while other homeowners may hold off until after the holidays, can help your house stand out. Start the process with a full-time real estate agent from the Diane McConaghy Team at RE/MAX Select Realty so you can get your house on the market and get ahead of your competition. Our team is scheduled to list five houses over the next few weeks. All during the holiday season.
2. Get in Front of Serious Buyers This Season
Housing supply has increased this year as buyer demand has moderated. But it’s still low overall. That means there aren’t enough homes on the market today, especially as the millennial generation reaches their peak homebuying years.
Serious buyers will still be looking this winter and your house may be exactly what they’re searching for. If you work with an agent from the Diane McConaghy Team to list your house now, you’ll be able to get in front of the eager buyers who are hoping to make a move before the year ends. Buyers this time of year are not Tire Kickers. They are serious about buying.
3. Seize a Great Chance To Move Up
Today’s homeowners have record amounts of equity. Home equity has climbed to an all time high. That means the equity you have in your house right now could cover some, if not all, of a down payment on the home of your dreams.
As you weigh the reasons to sell before winter, don’t lose sight of why you’re thinking about moving in the first place. Maybe it’s time to buy a house that’s in a better location for you. Perpahs a new house has the space you and your loved ones have been craving. Or, simply gives you that sense of home. A trusted real estate advisor from the Diane McConaghy Team can help you determine how much home equity you have and how you can use it to achieve your goal of making a move.
If you’re thinking about selling your house so you can find a home that better suits your needs, don’t delay your plans. Let’s connect so you can accomplish your goals before winter.
