When you announce that you’re going to sell your Clay home, you’ll probably be deluged with all sorts of theories about the right time to list the house. Never list in the winter! Spring is the best time! Don’t sell your house if it’s too hot, too cold, during the holidays...and on and on. While there is some truth to the idea that timing is important and that certain seasons see more activity than others, experts in the field say that pricing the house competitively for the market is actually the most important thing.
People shop for Clay real estate all year, and they have many different reasons for moving. Families with kids might want to move over the summer so as not to disrupt their kids’ school schedules. People get amazing job offers all year round and might have to move in a hurry. House sellers might be downsizing or have health conditions that require moving to be close to the right kind of medical care. This, too, can happen any time in the year.
Price Clay Real Estate for the Market, Whatever the Season
What does all this mean for selling a Clay home? If you have time, you can consider waiting for spring and nice weather. But if you suddenly need to move in the dead of winter or the height of the summer heat, don’t worry. There’s almost certainly someone at the same time who needs to move to this area just as quickly as you do. Remember that a lot of home shopping takes place online.
The key here is to work with a real estate agent who knows the market well. They’ll be able to help you price the house correctly, so the people who are looking for it will find it. People refine their searches by price range and home size and end up with a short list of possibles to actually visit.
