Selling Homes: Now a Year-Round Sport
The days are growing shorter. The weather is turning frigid. Snow will soon start falling from the sky. It's time for home sellers to pack up their "For Sale" signs, cancel their classified ads and wait until Spring to put their homes back on the market, right?
Used to be that the home-selling business slowed to a crawl during the winter months. But today, that's no longer the case. In fact, sellers may instead benefit by placing their home on the market in the winter.
Home sellers in the Chicago area are finding that in today's real estate market, it's possible to sell a house quickly any time of the year, so long as it's priced correctly, of course. If you're ready to sell in January, there's now no reason not to put your home on the market.
