Find Out What The Most Common Question Real Estate Agents Are Faced With ?!
Monday Nov 06th, 2017
The most common question Real Estate Agents are faced with on almost a daily basis; Is There Really a "Good Time" To Buy or Sell?
When The Rainmaker Team discusses this question with our clients we look at it from a variety of different perspectives.
First we consider what YOU mean by “good time”? Is it the right time in your life; is it the right time of year, week or month; or is it based on the market? These are all topics we can discuss when deciding if it’s the “right time” to list your home. In our experience, once the decision is made to list your home for sale, all the other “timing” questions simply fall into place.
The decision to move is often made with careful consideration and is usually the result of life changing circumstances such as a marriage, the birth of a child or the need to downsize. People take into consideration mortgage rates and home prices and gradually the decision is made that it may be the “right time” to move.
Typically it has been said the Spring is the best time of the year to sell because people put their homes on the market after being cooped up all winter and are anxious to make a move.
Alternatively, some people may also want to get settled before their kids are out of school, or before heading off for summer vacation. However, these “rules” are quickly changing. In today’s market we at the Rainmaker Team have seen homes sell just as quickly and for excellent prices during the “off” months as well. A serious buyer is looking to purchase at any time of year!
Homes are typically listed towards the end of the work week, with showings and open houses in full swing on Saturday and Sunday. We often tell our clients that properties can also be listed at the beginning of the week with terrific results. A Rainmaker Team member will help you decide on the “right” time of week to list your property so that you can obtain the best results!
So what does this all mean to you? In reality, there is no cut and dry answer to this age old question! When you think you might be ready to buy or sell, contact a knowledgeable and conscientious real estate advisor at the Rainmaker Team. We are prepared to answer all of your questions and can help you decide when the “time is right” for you to enter the real estate market!
