Real Estate Sells in the Winter Months

Yes, the winter season

a good time to put your house on the market. We have seen it year over year, with our January and February sales up last year by 20%.  Here is what we have discovered: 

1. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transfers cannot wait until Spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays to capture the market.

2. Some people, especially investors, must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.

3. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a work week.

4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.

4.  People have become convinced that "winter" is a dead time for real estate, when in fact it isn't.   Because of this misguided approach, the supply of listings will dramatically increase in the spring.  List today when you have less competition!  

And the number one reason why your should list during the Holidays …

5. People who look for homes during the Holidays are more serious buyers!

People are moving into the Greater Baton Rouge area today and need to find that perfect house NOW!
