Winter is right around the corner here in Albuquerque, and there are a lot of really good reasons to sell your home. I know it may not seem like a good time to sell a house, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

First and foremost, there aren't many houses on the market. This time of year, since many people think it's not a good time to sell, they take their houses off the market. That leaves us with fewer sellers than buyers looking to buy a home, so inventory is low. The holidays are almost here and it may seem inconvenient, but on the flip side, many people have days off of work around the holidays, giving them extra time to shop for houses.

You won't get as many showings as you might in the summer, but you will get quality showings because the people out looking for homes in the winter really need to find a house.

Another benefit to selling in the winter is that the process goes faster. Since not as many homes sell this time of year, our resources and vendors have more time as well. Inspectors, for example, have more time to devote to home sellers to make sure the process goes quickly and smoothly.

Additionally, this market is great for move-up buyers. When you sell, since there are fewer buyers out and about, you will have less competition to face when it comes time to buy in the higher price points. It's a perfect time if you're thinking of buying a bigger house or one that better matches your needs.

Finally, remember that if it's simply time for you to sell, don't wait! If your life situation merits it, you don't have to wait until January or the spring. If you think it's time or you'd like to learn more about how to take advantage of the current market, give us a call or send us an email. We'd be happy to help!
