6 Reasons to Sell this Off Season!

Contrary to popular belief, off season in the islands offers a unique opportunity for sellers to have their home on the market. If you want to sell your home, but it is currently not on the market, you might consider the following:
  1. We have learned from years of experience that buyers looking for homes in the San Juans during the off season are both educated and serious. They have done their research and are ready to buy, in many cases so they can personalize their new home for use in Spring and Summer.
  2. While interest rates may be in flux, we continue to experience historic lows affording many buyers increased spending power. Cash buyers are also prevalent at this time of year.
  3. There is less competition in the off season. The less supply, the higher the demand. Take advantage of lower inventory.
  4. Off season may be a bit slower, but this can also be interpreted to mean title companies, appraisers, home inspectors, and other real estate related trades are more available which helps to expedite the process.
  5. It is all about timing. Sell when homes are in demand and buy while interest rates are low. This is the sweet spot!
  6. Move on! Consider your carrying costs through the off season – mortgage payments, insurance, taxes, maintenance, and more. Is it really worth the wait?
