When to list your home?

Is there really a “best time” to put your home on the market?  The old saying about selling in May does not ring true in our current market.  Today home buyers are looking throughout the year, with January pulling in as many brokers and buyers as a home listed in the Spring or Summer.  During our winter months the weekends are key for getting buyers through the home.  The gardens are not yet blooming, the school year has not wrapped up, but the inventory is very low and the number of buyers in the current marketplace is high.  This year I predict January through July will be spectacular months for sellers to list and sell their homes.  Location and price remain very important to buyers, so presentation and a fair listing price are key.  I have found that a strong listing at this time of year, with an appealing photo gallery presence on-line and easy tour access during the week, and especially on weekends, should bring in just as many buyers as our old fashioned “Spring selling season” of years past.  Here is a look at our wonderful new listing in North Beach, mls #882812, located at 2825 NW Golden Drive for $775,000.  Open this Saturday and Sunday 2-4, it has all the bells and whistles and is a gem of a home.  Near the beach, updated, and boasting views, it is an easy one to fall in love with.  Swing by and see if you agree with me that this home in January is just as wonderful as it will be in May.
