Why You Shouldn't Wait Until Spring to Sell Your Winnetka, Deerfield, Glencoe IL Home

The question on many North Shore homeowner minds right now is whether or not to sell this winter or wait for better weather in the spring. It may be tempting to want to wait until the warmer months to list, after all more buyers will be out and about in the spring, right? That is not always the case!

There are many perks to selling your Winnetka, Glencoe, Deerfield, Northbrook, Highland Park area home this winter, without waiting until spring, and I've listed a few of them below.

There will be more competition in spring
Listing your home now allows you to avoid the wave of homeowners that will sell in the coming months. Not only will you be able to take advantage of rising home prices, but you can put your home on the center stage with fewer properties to overwhelm a buyer's decision.

Interest rates are rising
The Fed did just issue an interest rate hike this past week and by waiting to sell and move on, you never know what rates will look like. Selling your home now and moving on to a new property will allow you to lock in a lower rate than you might see in the spring.

Buyers are serious now
Think about it— many buyers in today's real estate market may be highly motivated to close due to a new job position. And as many jobs begin after the first of the year, buyers will be ready to purchase a new home now!

Buyers look constantly
With technology like smartphones, tablets, computers and the like, buyers no longer shop for homes by just driving by, reading the newspaper, or noticing a For Sale sign pop up in the neighborhood. Buyers are constantly browsing available homes online, therefore selling in the winter offers just as many opportunities!

If you're questioning whether now is the best time to sell your North Shore home, do not hesitate to give me a call! I am happy to provide more information on the current real estate market, available properties and what you can do to make your property more appealing to buyers.

I look forward to hearing from you!
