Is selling your home at the end of the year a good idea? This is a question that many people are asking, thinking that summer is traditionally the best time to sell.

The first thing to take into account is the fact that homes prices are driven by supply and demand. At this time of year, the supply of homes typically begins to dwindle. This means that if you decide to sell, you will have far fewer competitors than you would if you sold in April.

While it’s true that there will be fewer buyers at the end of the year, the buyers that are out there are a whole lot more motivated. Anyone who will walk through a foot of snow on a Tuesday afternoon will likely need to find a great home as soon as possible.

The numbers say it all: last October, we closed seven houses and sold three additional properties. In November of last year, we closed three houses and sold three additional houses; and in December of last year, we closed five and sold five additional homes. I give you these numbers to let you know that people in Rochester buy all year long!

If you’re ready to sell, there’s simply no reason to wait. If you would like to talk about the specifics of the selling process, give us a call or shoot us an email. We would love to hear from you!
