This cute little meme gave me a chuckle as soon as I saw it. Aside from being a good laugh, it’s actually true. February is a fantastic month to list your home for sale. For the last several years I’ve noticed a trend with home buyers – they aren’t waiting until Spring anymore. Sellers who list their home for sale now capture those early bird buyers and they also beat the listing rush that gets under way in March. What’s not to love about that? You get your home on the market when there’s less competition and an influx of buyers.
This is especially important right now because the Upper Cumberland has been experiencing a shortage of listings for almost a year now. That is likely to intensify as more buyers hit the market this spring. By Fall rising interest rates may slow the pace of home sales, so truly, this spring is a fantastic time to list your home.
If you’ve been considering listing your property please give me a call (or e-mail) today. I’m always happy to provide a free, no obligation estimate of what your property is worth so you can decide if the time is right to sell. I offer this service for Putnam, Overton, White, Jackson, and a portion of Cumberland county Tennessee. Depending on the size of your property, it generally takes me less than an hour to tour the property and make notes. I’ll then go back to my office and do in-depth research of recent sales as well as properties you’d be in competition with and prepare the information for you. This helps you to be well informed about the current market so you can make the best decision about what is best for you.
If you’re thinking of selling your property I’d love to hear from you!
