4 Reasons to Sell This Winter

January 17, 2018 by Joe Grunnet

As we settle into another cold, Minnesota winter, the last thing on most people’s want to think about is listing their home for sale. For most us, we are happy to wait until the snow has melted and put our homes up for sale in the warmer Spring market. However, given the current real estate market in Minneapolis, is that really the best strategy for 2018? Here are four reasons you shouldn’t wait until Spring and sell your home this Winter:

1. Buyer Demand Will Continue to be Strong. Buyers are out in force this winter! The demand has not slowed down like in years past. In Minneapolis, the average home is only staying on the market 48 days! With such high demand, now is a great time to get your home on the market.

2. There is Less Competition Now. With housing inventory across the country still under the 6-month supply that is needed for a normal housing market, there will be less competition for you! Now is the perfect time to capitalize on the low inventory and capture potential buyers.

3. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move Up. Home prices are projected to appreciate by 4.7% in 2018 and if you are moving to a higher-priced home, you could be saving yourself money in the long run! If you wait, it might end up costing you more in both down payment and mortgage payment.

4. It’s Time to Move on With Your Life. Why are you thinking about selling your home in the first place? Is there are reason you are waiting? There is no better time then the present! Selling your house this winter means more time to enjoy your new home once the weather is nicer and kids are out of school.
