Is it smart to sell your home in November?

In between making the Thanksgiving Day turkey, getting your house decorated for the season and picking up relatives from the airport is it really the best time to sell your home?

Sheer madness right? Maybe not. Many might say it’s definitely not the time to put up a ‘for sale’ sign in the front lawn, but that may not be the case anymore thanks to low supply and demand.

Here are a few reasons why you might want to call in a Realtor and start thinking about selling your home in November.

1. People who are shopping for a home at this time of year tend to be more serious and some of them may be purchasing for year-end tax benefits.

2. Less competition of homes on the market and the MLS.

3. Many buyers who are looking during this time wish there were more homes on the market. That’s when you as a seller, with a nice home might seriously consider thinking about listing it after Thanksgiving.

4. If you don’t want to keep your home open for viewings during the holidays, think about doing it after January when inventory levels tend to be lower. That when many sellers prefer waiting – during the springtime to list, a more traditional selling time.
