The Truth About When You Should List Your Home

Deciding to sell your house in Sunrise Beach is only half of the process; once you have made your decision to sell, you must decide when to list your home. Different sources provide many different opinions on when the best time of year is to list your home, but the truth is that every month of the year has its own advantages. The team at Eagle's Nest Realty is here to help you identify these unique advantages.

Benefits Of Listing Your Home In The Winter

You Won't Have As Much Competition
Most people wait until the warmer months to list their homes, so there are not as many homes on the market during the winter. By listing your home now, you will not have to compete with as many other sellers.

More Families Relocate In January Than Any Other Time Of Year
Changing jobs, the desire to be closer to family, change in financial positions... people relocate to the Lake of the Ozarks for any number of different reasons. More moves happen in January, so listing your home now can help you get in front of more serious buyers.

Your Home Will Have Greater Visibility
Your Lake of the Ozarks REALTOR® is responsible for helping you market your house. Since there aren't as many listings during the winter months, your home is more likely to be featured frequently.

Benefits Of Listing Your Home In The Spring

The Market Is About To Get Very Busy
There is typically a housing boom in the summer, so listing your home in the spring can let you stay ahead of the curve. Homes typically get the most traffic during the first month they're on the market, so listing now can be a big advantage.

Buyers Have 'Spring Fever'
After a long, cold winter, most people are ready for something fresh and exciting. For some, that means a new home at the Lake of the Ozarks. Listing now can let you get in front of these energetic buyers.

Your Annual Spring Cleaning Will Double As Staging Efforts
Deep cleaning your home is one of the most important steps to getting it ready for the market. Since most people clean their homes thoroughly in the spring anyway, listing now can help you get more for your efforts!

Benefits Of Listing Your Home In The Summer

It's Typically A Seller's Market
More buyers search for new homes in the summer than any other time of the year. With so many competing buyers, you may be able to be more selective about which offers to accept.

Summer Is The Most Enjoyable Time To Tour Homes
Many buyers wait until the weather is warm before they begin looking for homes in earnest. By listing your home in the summer, you'll be able to get in front of these warm-weather buyers who have begun their home search.

Rent Costs Are Rising
Rent costs are expected to increase significantly in 2016. By summer, many renters who originally held on to their leases may be tired of paying these higher costs and decide to begin looking for homes of their own.

Benefits Of Listing Your Home In The Fall

Competition Will Go Back Down
After the housing boom in spring and summer, many sellers are closing up shop. If you list your home now, you will be able to get your home in front of the buyers who did not find a home this summer and are still looking.

Buyers Will Be More Flexible About Viewing Times
With all of the vacations and reunions, summer is an incredibly busy time for buyers. In the fall, their schedules will open up and they are likely to be more flexible about which times they can come view your home.

Homes Stage Wonderfully In The Fall
People love fall and all of the cozy warmth it brings. Comfortable throw pillows, fuzzy blankets, and glowing fires can bring your fall staging efforts to an entirely new level.
