If you're one of the many that is waiting until spring arrives to put your home up for sale there are 3 compelling reasons why you should do it now. Spring is definitely the busiest time in the Calgary real estate market with listings being added and houses selling at lightning speed. So many homeowners put off selling their home until this busy time but there are definitely reasons why you should be listing your home now.
More competition - for you!
With less people putting their homes up for sale you'll have more of an advantage selling it now. Just because the market rush occurs when the flowers are blooming and the weather is heating up in spring doesn't mean that there aren't people out there right now shopping for a home. Instead of waiting until spring when more listings means more competition for the houses for sale, list yours now and have the buyers competing for your home instead.
A faster sale
If you have a great home to offer you can often see a quick sale in the fall. It's at this time of year when people are confronting the approach of winter and want to get things done quickly before the brutal cold sets in. There are many potential homebuyers that have put off their house hunting for the summer for one reason or another that are now scrambling to get a home that they can call their own before winter. You'll have a good chance of selling your home quickly now if it's in good shape and in the desired location.
Your house will stand on its own merits
When you're selling your home in the spring rush your property can get lost in the crowd quite easily. With less competition in the listings your home can stand on its own and be judged on its own merits. There is a more relaxed approach to viewing houses at this time as well so if your home looks great it should sell quite fast.
There are potential homebuyers in Calgary and people across Canada and the world that are looking for a new property in the city where they can settle right now. Just because it isn't spring doesn't mean that there isn’t an abundance of people that want or need to relocate during the fall season. If you've been thinking of putting your house up for sale there really is no reason to put it off until spring.
