Certainly it must sound too easy for a REALTOR® to say, “There’s no time like the present to list your home! Sign here!” Who wants to buy a home in winter anyway? Moving is unpleasant, even in the nicest weather. Families are spending their cash on Christmas gifts. And most people want a holiday from thinking about serious things like real estate… and COVID.
It is counterintuitive, but the perfect time to start making serious plans to sell your home is exactly when Old Man Winter is gearing up and Albertans are hunkering down.
Consider the following seasonal realities:
- Prospective homebuyers are solidifying their plans for 2021.
- Buyers who are shopping in winter are likely very motivated.
- Lethbridge real estate sales start ticking upward every year, long before Spring.
- You have this ‘down time’ to strategize and prepare for a great listing.
