As we get into winter, many people are asking whether it’s a good time to sell their houses. Most people think it isn’t, but is that true?   

“There are typically fewer buyers, but they’re genuine.”

In my last video, I talked about how inventory levels are very low. At the beginning of November, we hadn’t seen inventory levels that low in over a decade. However, houses are still selling, and as we head into winter, it’s an excellent time to put your house on the market.   

We didn’t see much of a slowdown last year, even though the real estate market usually slows a bit in the autumn and winter. We had a slew of pent-up demand, and we’re continuing to see that. In the winter, we also have more serious buyers; would you schlepp through the snow and ice just to look at houses for fun? No, but if you need a house, you can find one. There are typically fewer buyers, but they’re genuine.   

If you have questions about selling your home in the winter or anything else, give me a call or send an email. I’ve had friends and past clients say they didn’t want to bother me with something, but you’re not bothering me! I would love to help you. Also, let me know if you have a topic you’d like me to cover in a future video.


We will be contacting you shortly with information about your home.
