Why You Should Sell During the Holidays

Here are three reasons why you should sell your home during the holidays.

Why would it be advantageous to have your home on the market during the holidays? It might seem counterintuitive, but the holiday season is a great time to sell. There are three solid reasons why:

1. Buyers are serious this time of year. There may be fewer buyers, but they don’t want to waste their time looking.

The holiday season is a great time to sell.

2. People are transferred at this time. Employees are often relocated during the holiday season, so they need to buy.

3. You can take advantage of lower inventory. Everyone else is taking their homes off the market, so there’ll be lower inventory, which means higher prices.

If you’re thinking about buying or selling, I would encourage you to call me, and I can answer any questions you have. Happy holidays!


Advice for Listing Your Summerville Home

Here’s a quick tip for pricing and preparing your Summerville home to sell.

Today I want to talk to you about pricing and selling homes in the older areas of Augusta, specifically in Summerville. The market is moving very quickly overall, and we’re seeing jumps in the average sale price. In Summerville, we’ve also seen a 20% decline in inventory. There is only about a one-month supply of homes out there.

Your home has to be ready for buyers when you list it for sale.

Even with such a low supply, there are still certain tips you’ll need to follow to successfully sell your Summerville home for top dollar. Remember that it’s a price war and a beauty contest, even in a market with low inventory. 

It’s so important to have your home ready when it comes on the market. Things are moving so swiftly that I’m seeing buyers ask what’s wrong with homes simply because they have been on the market for 30 days. There are a lot of things that could cause a home to sit without selling, but most of the time the property simply isn’t prepared and/or priced properly. When this occurs, people are going to think something is wrong with a home when there really isn’t. Summerville is a fantastic area to live in and this situation should rarely happen. 

If you have any questions or need more advice on how to position your home to sell for top dollar, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
