It is common knowledge that a large number of homes sell during the spring-buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their home on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.
The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring, as compared to the rest of the year?The National Association of Realtors (NAR)recently revealed which months most people listed their home in for 2015.
Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,860,000.
That number spiked to 2,280,000 by May!
What does this mean to you?
With the national job situation improving, and mortgage interest rates projected to rise later in the year, buyers are not waiting until the spring. They are out looking for a home right now. If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition for a buyer.
It may make sense to beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market in the spring and list your home today.
Interest rates are rising and the chance to maximize your profits along with getting a low interest rate are dwindling. Let 2016 be the year you cash in your homes equity and upgrade to a newer, nicer, home with a lower mortgage payment!

I always ask for a preapproval up front and some people are so SCARED
"“My husband and I were in need of a house to keep us both happy. Diane stuck it out through the normal “his wishes” vs. “her wishes” for a long time. She made time to show me houses that fit our schedule and often she showed us houses after “normal” business hours so that my husband could be included. I was completely confident in her help and would recommend her services to anyone looking for that perfect place and the process to complete the purchase.”"
