Is the holiday season a good time to list a home in San Diego? That’s a question we get a lot here at Whissel realty, so we thought we would take the time to answer it today.
Put simply, the answer is: YES, it’s a great time to put your home on the market! But why, you ask? For one, many homeowners are waiting until spring to put their home on the market. They don’t want to deal with showings over the holidays or have to worry about making it an inconvenient time.
In short, if you’re a seller you don’t have much competition. In most of San Diego right now there are only around two to three months of inventory of homes for sale,while in a traditional markets there are typically six to eight months of inventory.
Often, homes listed during the holidays will sell faster and for more money. If you really want to time the market perfectly, you could sell your current home now and wait to buy until spring when a lot of homes come on the market.
While there aren’t as many buyers on the market during this time, the buyers who are out there right now are serious – often because they are relocation buyers who HAVE TO BUY SOON. While you will have fewer showings, they will be showings of a MUCH higher quality.
If you’re interested in taking advantage of these ideal selling conditions, please give us a call or shoot us an email. We would be happy to discuss your options with you and put you in a position to have a successful real estate experience.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
