The holidays are officially over. Most students are back at school and other than those of us who are away on vacation, things are back to normal. Maybe now you have time to think about selling your home? Are you READY to sell? Wait, is January the right time?
Yes, January is the right time to sell your home, so, if you’re considering a move, The John Weber Team can help! The biggest reason that right now is the right time to sell your home is that there continues to be a significant lack of inventory in the Barrie area. Why wait until March, when hundreds of other home owners list their home? You’ll get lost in the masses and might have to take a lower price due to too much competition. We consistently explain to home owners that December, January and February are great times to put your home on the market. With the volume of Buyers out there, you can achieve the success you are looking for.
Before you jump on board though, here are a couple of questions to ask yourself.
- What is your motivation for selling? Why do you want to make this move?
- What if your home is sold within the first week? Do you already know where you’re moving to?
- Is your home ready? Do you need to make repairs, touch up some paint, purge some closets? Or are there bigger issues that need to be addressed, like a roof at the end of it’s life or flooring that needs to be replaced?
- Do you know the balance on your mortgage and whether or not there will be a penalty to pay it off? Is there any other outstanding debt that could hinder your approval on a new mortgage?
- If you have children at home, how do they feel about this process?
These are just a few of the things to consider when it’s time to sell, and John Weber and I have the expertise to help you through the process. If you’re curious about what your home is worth, considering the 9% increase in selling prices in the Barrie Real Estate Market in the past year, we’d be happy to provide you with an up to date market analysis customized to fit your needs.
