Looking ahead to spring real estate for sale in Salmon Arm
While winter still has its grips on the parking lots and hills around Salmon Arm, it’s not getting in the way of eager homeowners looking to get a jump on the spring real estate market. If you’ve been thinking of listing your home, townhome or condo for sale in Salmon Arm, Shuswap or Blind Bay, then I want to give you a couple of compelling reasons why waiting for spring isn’t always the best course of action.
Salmon Arm Real Estate Inventory is Generally Lower in Winter
When you think spring, you think of flowers blooming in unison with real estate for sale signs popping up on local front lawns. Most Salmon Arm homeowners have been told at one point or another that spring is the best time to list and sell your real estate in order to fetch top dollar. After all, that’s when we have an influx of tourists and out of towners who become enamored with our small towns, Shuswap charm. The problem with this scenario is that everyone lists their homes around the same time, which floods the market with inventory and dilutes your chances of selling. If you want to increase your exposure, go against the grain and list ahead of the busy spring market in order to avoid competition.
The Winter Season Can Attract More Serious Offers
While springtime usually brings more tourists and potential buyers out of the woodwork, we tend to screen more potential buyers who aren’t necessarily as serious about making an immediate move. Listing your home for sale in the winter months generally helps to attract a more solid potential homebuyer for your property because people looking in the dead of winter generally need to move in the very near to immediate future. Listing your home for sale in Salmon Arm over the winter helps to avoid competition and tire kickers at the same time.
