There are several reasons why you should strongly consider selling your home right now.
First and foremost, the school year is just around the corner, and with school comes a decrease in buyer activity. Why? Most homes on the market appeal to families. A family may be looking to move into another school district or move up to a bigger house. If you wait too long to sell your home, you will lose out on a considerable number of buyers.
Also, we firmly believe that the market is about to shift. Will it dip or go completely backwards like before? Probably not. However, if the market retracts just a bit, you may be in trouble. I’m a fan of taking your chips off the table. Sell your home and take your profit now instead of waiting for something better to come along. If you wait, you may lose the opportunity to sell your home altogether.
The fact is that we are in an election year. Election years tend to prop up the market. Based on our analysis of the numbers and conversations with our agents who are out in the trenches every day, the market will most likely shift in the first or second quarter of next year. Selling now may be a very wise decision for you.
