Four Reasons to List Now

Four reasons to list your home for sale now

If you are considering selling your home in the near future, don’t wait. Putting off selling until Summer could mean you miss out on several advantages in the market right now.

Reason Number One

Let’s start with the fact that there are fewer homes on the market right now in the Bay Area. Lower inventory means you could get a better price for your property. According to KTVU, Channel 2, the National Association of Realtors says the median price for a Bay Area single family home jumped by 17% last month. Smaller available inventory is believed to be the main driver of this price hike.

Buyers Ready to Buy

Moreover, buyers who are in the market now are serious and ready to take action. There is a reason they are looking right now and not waiting. These buyers don’t want to wait or can’t wait until the inventory improves.

Rising Interest Rates Are Reason to Sell Now

With regard to financing, everyone knows that current trends show that interest rates are trending up. This affects affordability outside of price considerations. It is widely believed that interest rates will be higher in summer when demand for loans will increase.

More Help Now

Lastly, your agent, lender, title company and everyone else involved in finalizing your home sale can devote more time on your home sale before the summer rush. Therefore, it can give you an advantage that helps make your sale process smoother and faster.
