Are you thinking of selling a house or condo in the metro Edmonton area this year? You might want to consider doing it now.
1. Less Competition – Most home sellers fall into the trap of waiting until Spring. These sellers are going to be in competition with a lot of other folks who will be putting their up homes onto the market at the same time. Be smart. Do it now and you might have the only home for sale in your neighborhood? This is a perfect opportunity to sell quickly and for full market value.
2. Quality Buyers – Buyers looking now are serious. Usually they are under some pressure to select a home and buy it quickly. If you can offer a quick possession, we can often negotiate a premium price for you.
3. You Save Time - You have no yard to clean or no grass to cut. Therefore, you just have to focus on presenting the home in the best possible light.
4. Certainty – The metro Edmonton Market is flat. In 2017 we enjoyed a 1% increase in values overall.
Some experts have predicted a flat or even declining market values as we move into 2018. At this time most home buyers will not have gotten wind of these predictions and are much more likely to offer a price based on recent sales comparisons as opposed to lower values that may emerge as 2018 matures.
Sell your home now and you can much more certain of getting fullmarket value.
