Winter officially takes place between Dec. 21 and March 20, and in real estate that means a season with serious and focused sellers and buyers. Here are 5 reasons why late winter could be the prime time to list your home:


  1. Supply has been unable to keep up with demand and those who couldn’t find a home in 2017 are still looking.

  2. Low inventory means more interest in your home and less competition than in the spring.

  3. Many companies transfer employees or hire new ones early in the year, creating opportunities for winter sellers from very motivated purchasers.

  4. According to research by a major national brokerage, homes sell more quickly in winter months and net more above asking price in the winter than they do from June through November. Yeah!

  5. Your real estate agent has more time  to focus on your needs and to negotiate the your best deal!
