Don't Wait Until Spring to Sell Your Fairbanks or Anchorage Area Home
The question on many Alaskan homeowner minds right now is whether or not to sell yet this winter or wait for better weather in the spring. It may be tempting to want to wait until the warmer months to list, after all more buyers will be out and about in the spring, right? Not so fast! That is not always the case!
There are many perks to selling your Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, or North Pole area home this winter, without waiting until spring, and as your local experts, Madden Real Estate has listed a few of them below.
There will be more competition in spring
By listing your Alaskan home now, you avoid the wave of homeowners that will sell in the coming months. Not only will you be able to take advantage of rising home prices, but you can put your home on the center stage with fewer properties to overwhelm a buyer's decision.
Interest rates are rising
If you insist on waiting to sell in another few months, you never know what rates will look like. Rates are rising all the time and moving on to a new property now will allow you to lock in a lower rate than you might see in the spring.
Buyers are serious now
Think about it— many buyers in today's real estate market are highly motivated to close due to a new job position. Many of these jobs begin after the first of the year, even this month, so buyers will be ready to purchase a new home now!
Buyers look constantly
With technology like smartphones, tablets, computers and the like, buyers no longer shop for homes by just driving by, reading the newspaper, or noticing a For Sale sign pop up in the neighborhood. Buyers are constantly searching for homes online, therefore selling in the winter offers just as many opportunities!
