Are you finding yourself contemplating the question “Should I Sell My House?”
There are many reasons people decide to sell a home, ranging from personal finances to the need for more or less space. If you’ve been sitting on the fence, you’ll be glad to know the right time to hop off the fence and list your house is anytime!
Your home is a unique asset in your investment portfolio. This is because a home is where you live. Plus, it’s an all or nothing proposition. You can’t sell a portion of your profits, like that rarely used guest bedroom.
So, when making the decision to sell, your personal needs will likely play a factor in determining the right ‘perfect’ time to sell.
People sell their homes for many reasons. Here are the most common:
- Looking to Upsize
- You’re Downsizing
- It’s Retirement Time
- Want to Move to A Different Neighbourhood
- Lifestyle Moves
- Moving Out of Town
- Selling a Home After a Death in a Family
- A Change in Finances
- Old Age
- It’s Time For A Change – According to a recent survey by ComFree, 28% of homeowners get the urge to move every 5 years
- The Market is Hot
“Regardless of why you might be thinking of selling, sometimes talking about it can help the decision become more clear. We’re here to listen and guide you to the right decision.”
– Darcy Nyrose
When is the Right Time To Sell?
With potential buyers having the ability to browse homes online 24/7, there’s always a market. Sure, the time of year can play a role in how quickly something might sell but even in historically slow times, there can be an advantage. For instance, if most are waiting until spring to list their house, that means if you list in winter there will be less competition. When buyers have less choice, it can put sellers in the driver’s seat.
It’s not so much when you put your home on the market, but the price you choose to list at that will set the tone for your sale. When priced right for the market, anytime can be the right time to sell.
