Is it the “right” time to put my home on the market?
You might be thinking Spring or Summer are best when all the vacationers are visiting the Highland Lakes area… Well guess what?… Here are 4 great reasons to go ahead and list your home NOW:
Serious Buyers are looking now…in preparation for Spring and Summer! Many buyers are already online searching for a great Lake LBJ or Highland Lakes home that will be ready for their spring break and summer activities. REALTORS® know that waterfront and hill country shoppers venturing out in January and February typically are motivated and serious. Keep in mind that serious buyers are buyers with a purpose.
Less competition…whether winter buyers are online or simply driving around, your home is most likely to get noticed because of the limited availability of properties. There are fewer properties for buyers to choose from so yours just might be the one that meets their needs!
More attention from Buyer Agents…less inventory on the market provides a great opportunity for buyer agents to preview your home and give it specialized attention since they probably have fewer clients to manage. That also means less time spent on just lookers and more time spent negotiating with actual potential buyers. Some locations experience bidding wars during these months so keep that in mind as you ponder whether to sell.
The Major Holidays are behind us…so now folks can concentrate on finding the right home without the pressure and hustle & bustle of holiday shopping! Preparations for Spring and Summer are already being made, Spring Break will be here before you know it. Many buyers are looking to be in their Lake LBJ home by that time so that they can enjoy the amenities offered by Kingsland, Marble Falls, Horseshoe Bay, Granite Shoals, Burnet and other Highland Lakes communities.
