Throughout the year, one question we hear a lot is this: "When is the best time of year to sell my home?" We looked back over the last 15 years, and we found that sellers achieve the most success during the month of February.
Some of you may be surprised at this since February in Minnesota is so cold and sees a high amount of snowfall. The facts are pretty clear, though. In February, there is a significant amount of buyers, and inventory levels are 25% lower than the rest of the year. This means there is less competition for sellers, and the buyers that are out there are serious about purchasing a home.
That said, February buyers are often concerned about the yard. Since the yard can be covered in snow, the buyers won't know what it looks like. We recommend taking professional photographs of the property before any snow hits the ground. Those pictures will give buyers the confidence to move forward. Buyer confidence results in higher rewards for the seller.
If you need a professional photographer to take photos of your property, we can provide one for you. If you have any other questions about today's video or about real estate in general, give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help you!
