Look at the numbers for October, November and December. Understand: For the closings to take place, the target date for properties to sell is approximately 45 days earlier. The cycle for closings take that amount of time to get ready, ie: inspection, application for mortgage, appraisal, Mortgage survey, Underwriter’s approval, “Clear to Close” and ultimately coordinate closing time and place. For October & November to have more closings than either April or July is an important statistic. Buyers ARE looking at property all year long. They can get access to listings with a click on the internet. Please consider selling your property whenever it is right for you. There are no Fall fi re sales nor Spring rushes. I encourage sellers to take a long hard look at these numbers and understand it is worthwhile listing your property anytime during the year. If you want to sell your property, give me a call and I will prepare a free Comparable Market Analysis. Have a great holiday season!
