Why Now is The Perfect Time to List Your Current House and Make the Move to The Canoe Club

If you have been thinking about selling your current house and making the move to an amenity rich lake community, this may be the perfect time to list.  Here’s why.

Listing your home for sale in August might not sound like the most appealing idea at first. After all, the summer heat can be intense, and many potential buyers may be away on vacation. However, there are some practical advantages to consider that could make August an excellent time to sell your home. Here’s why listing your home in the last dog days of summer may actually be to your benefit.

Limited Inventory

One of the main advantages of selling in August is that there might be less competition in the housing market. Many homeowners prefer to wait until the spring or fall to list their homes, which means there could be fewer properties available for buyers to choose from during the summer. With fewer options on the market, your home can stand out more and attract serious buyers looking to make a purchase quickly.

Motivated Buyers

Buyers who are actively searching for a home in August are often more motivated to move quickly. Some may be relocating for a job or need to finalize their housing situation before the start of the new school year. This sense of urgency could work in your favor, as motivated buyers may be more willing to negotiate and make competitive offers.

Faster Closing Process

Another upside to listing in August is the potential for a faster closing process. With fewer transactions happening during this time, mortgage lenders, appraisers and title companies may have more bandwidth to handle your sale efficiently. Read more on USNews.com.
