You might be&nbsp;thinking it is best to take it off the market and re-list in the spring. However&nbsp;if you are serious about selling, rethink removing it from the market for the following 4 reasons.</p> <p>1.&nbsp; If you remove your home from the market, you will have less completion on the market place, which means buyers will have less to pick from.&nbsp;You actually might sell at a higher&nbsp;price in the winter&nbsp;than if you wait until spring when you&#39;ll&nbsp;have greater competition.</p> <p>2.&nbsp;&nbsp; The winter months are the best time for buyers to make a purchase.&nbsp;They normally have more time to look around before the spring, when&nbsp;life gets busy with&nbsp;kids&nbsp;getting out of school and summer vacations being planned.</p> <p>3.&nbsp; Buyers want to already be in their new home in winter so they can enjoy the start of the spring and summer season.</p> <p>4.&nbsp; Bad weather is no longer an issue for buyers&nbsp;like it used&nbsp;to be in the past, traveling to view different homes.&nbsp;Nine out of ten homebuyers search for their homes online at their workplaces, on their smart phones, and from the comfort of their homes after dark.</p> <p>I have sold many of my listings during the winter. My sellers were glad they listened to my advice about keeping their homes on the market.&nbsp;Don&rsquo;t let the winter season discourage you from trying to sell your home.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Happy Winter Selling!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> House For Sale Holiday Hampshire County Selling Tips sellers buyers coldwell banker Wanda Mooney Franklin County Hilltowns Western Mass Greenfield Thu, 23 Nov 2017 19:11:43 -0500
