Sell Now or Wait for Spring?

This is the time of year when perspective sellers start to ask the question, “Should we list our home now or wait until next spring?” It is a question worth considering in Boise where the winters can mask some of a homes features. So, what is the answer? It depends.
Real estate is somewhat seasonal in Idaho with more homes being sold in the spring and summer than in the winter. There are several factors that make this true. It does not, however, mean that homes don’t sell in the winter. They absolutely do. People move all year. And, if you are a seller, there is less competition.
To determine what is right for you, ask yourself the following questions.
Does your yard greatly enhance the appeal or value of your property?
Is your house show ready, or do you need time to make repairs, paint, or deep clean the house?
Are you willing to risk what the market may or may not do between now and next spring?
The answers to these questions should help you decide if now is the time to list or not. Remember that people do move in the winter and, if your home isn’t listed, you can be sure it won’t be shown.
