Should I sell my home in the winter?
Winter in Mid-Michigan can make us feel like the sun will never shine again. Everything is gray, the days are short and the trees are bare. For the real estate market, winter means fewer homes on the market while most sellers assume they should wait for spring to list their home for sale. Is this just a myth? The truth is, right now in January 2023, buyers are active and waiting for the right house to come available. It's tax time and buyers are evaluating their budgets, living arrangements and setting goals and resolutions, and that often includes purchasing a home! Tax refunds also often provide down payment funds. With so many low-down payment programs available in Shiawassee, Ingham, Livingston and surrounding counties, these are strong movtivating factors locally. Even with higher interest rates than last year at this time, so many buyers are still ready and waiting for that right home. What does lower inventory mean for you as a seller?
