If you are considering selling your Augusta metropolitan area home this year, you may not want to wait. It’s commonly thought that homes sell more quickly in the spring and summer. However, statistics, such as this one from redfin.com, suggest that homes listed in the winter sell almost as well as homes listed in the spring and better than those listed in the summer and fall. (1) If you’ve been thinking about listing your home with an Augusta realtor, putting it on the market in the winter months has some key benefits.
- Lower inventory – less competition! There are typically fewer houses in the market in the winter months, meaning it’s much more likely that your listing will be viewed.
- Serious buyers – We may not see much snow in Augusta but we’ve certainly had some very cold days this winter and buyers ready to toss on their coat and brave shorter days to view houses are likely to be serious about finding a home.
- Check off that goal – Have you been casually discussing selling your home in Augusta, GA, or the surrounding metro area – including Martinez, Evans, Grovetown, GA (Columbia County) and North Augusta, Aiken, Graniteville, SC (Aiken County) – for years? You can take action now, and with the help of a good agent, potentially make your next dream a reality – in time to relax and enjoy the summer months.
