Spring is generally the most popular time of year to sell a house. It can be refreshing hunting for a dream home when the cacti are blooming, but experts say that selling a home in winter can be far more lucrative.
As one of the top producing real estate teams, Steve and Kirsten Thomas have seen the real estate market stumble, fall, skyrocket, and return to where it started more times than they can count. One constant element that is present in all market cycles is softened competition during winter months.
Since spring is the most popular home-selling season, the housing market tends to be more saturated with new listings. “It’s simply the law of supply and demand. If you want to sell your house now, do it while there’s less competition,” said Steve and Kristen Thomas.
In the winter, there are fewer homes for sale. That competition over low inventory makes winter an ideal time for selling houses.
The owners of The Thomas Group of Las Vegas noted that homebuyers are typically not as picky during wintertime as they sometimes are in more “comfortable” seasons:
“The buyers are shopping right now, and they are serious. You get far fewer looky-loos during the winter months. If people are busy with the holidays or new year plans, they are not ready to buy. But the people showing up to open houses and getting pre-qualified, well, those are your ready-to-go buyers, and they are out looking. This is the best time to list your house for sale,” said Kristen and Steve.
There are tax benefits to buying a home, and some people want to claim that next year. That means that buying a house this year yields rewards for the following year.
Studies show that people are willing to pay more during the holiday season. Between the low inventory, “must move” job situations, and the holiday spirit, people are more likely to pay more for the house they want.
