There is a misnomer that you shouldn't try to sell your home during the winter. I have been selling homes for 12 years and Decemeber has been on of my busier months for most of them. The one thing I can share is that the buyers that are out and looking at homes are serious buyers putting in serious offers.
When spring comes around you start to get the tire kickers and the dreamers.
More and more, buyers and sellers are starting to get rid of the notion that spring is the only time to sell.
“Homes don’t sell in the Wintertime” We Realtors hear this all the time and it is so untrue!
Don’t believe us? Look at the statistics. Statistics do not lie. Wintertime is a Great Time to sell your home in the Poconos.
November of 2012 was the month that had the most sold homes in the Poconos last year. So many people take their homes off the market in September - they miss a great chance to sell their home in the Poconos - Big Mistake!
September and October of 2013 have had GREAT totals for the number of homes sold per month and each one has exceeded the previous years totals.
September 2012 - 134 homes sold
September 2013 - 186 homes sold
October 2012 - 141 homes sold
October 2013 - 172 homes sold (176 homes were sold in July of 2013)
(November and December of 2013 - the numbers are not in yet)
January 2012 - 103 homes sold
January 2013 - 121 homes sold
February 2012 - 80 homes sold
February 2013 - 119 homes sold
This week we put another one of our listings under contract and are negotiating on another one and the number of showings we had on others surprised even us.
Homes do sell in the Wintertime in the Poconos! You see the advantages you have here. There are fewer homes on the market for sale so when the more serious buyer comes out in the wintertime to buy a home in the Poconos your home gets more showings because you have LESS COMPETITION!
Both of these homes that will now be under contract to be sold have been on the market through the summer. There was so much competition then they did not get near as many showings as they are getting now.
Homes do sell in the Wintertime in the Poconos! Get your home on the market for sale NOW!
