sell my house DC

People often ask "When is the better time to list my house for sale?" My reply to that is "Whenever you are ready."

Too many people try to analyze and predict the optimum time to list their house. The truth is, there really is no best time/worst time. Some individuals think it is best to list in the spring when there is more activity and there are more buyers out looking but that is also what almost every other home sellers also feel so there are lots of other houses for anyone buyers to choose from. More competition for you personally house. Yes, good houses sell faster in the year but so will the excellent house you are trying to buy. You could get multiple offers about the home you are selling then be competing with other buyers for the house you want to purchase.

It's commonly thought that around Christmas is not a good time to list. While it is true that sales activity drops off considerably in December you may still find buyers looking, just not as many. You would get less possible buyers through your house, but any that did come you can bet they are prepared to buy. And there are less houses for buyers to pick from. On a personal note, some time ago I was a willing buyer right around Christmas time and I remember being annoyed there was nothing for sale when I was able to buy.
Stop foreclosure DC

Some people want to produce changes or improvements with their house such as painting, landscaping, flooring etc before they list. Doing might be found are generally a good idea to create your house more salable but when they are complete, get the house for sale! No matter the time of year it is.

Also, prices don't fluctuate that much based on seasonality. House prices generally don't drop in the winter as many folks think. You are not will make a bunch more money by waiting until the spring.

People should base their decision on personal matters including, when the new job starts, retirement, if the kids finish school or financial problems etc. Or they see a house they fall in love with. Those are real life reasons.

There are always ready sellers and buyers out there looking to make a alteration of their housing, so really, don't decide to move based on the real estate market, make it based on when you're ready to move.
