When’s the Best Time to Sell?
Is now a good time to sell? Learn the answer to this million-dollar question right here.
Is now the best time for you to sell your home? Well, it depends—no matter what time of the year it is or what’s happening in the market, whether or not you should sell your home depends on your current situation.
If you’re a home seller working with the Wagner Real Estate Group, we’ll first have an in-person consultation with our clients where we learn the reasons why you want to sell your home. During these meetings, I spend 80% of the time listening to your explanation and 20% asking questions about your reasons for selling—for example, did you change your job or lifestyle?
"There is no one-size-fits-all approach to home selling."
During a recent meeting with a client, we also discussed their whole financial portfolio, covering how many real estate assets it would make sense for them to own and what is expected in the future of the Seattle market. At the end of the meeting, my clients and I concluded that it was, in fact, the right time for them to sell. From there, it was just a matter of fleshing out how to prepare the home to sell, which projects would get the best return on investment, and when they needed the home to be on the market.
As you can see, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to home selling. If you have any questions about selling your home, including whether or not now is the best time to list, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We can help advise you with your specific situation in mind.
