Are you thinking about selling your home here in Temecula or another of our local communities? If so, you’re likely wondering if now is the best time to sell, or if you should wait until sometime later in the year or into 2015. The good news is that you won’t have to wait – now is an excellent time to sell your Temecula real estate and in this post we’ll share a few reasons why if you’re going to sell, you may want to get the process started.
A Cooler Market Means Less Competition
Here in Temecula the real estate market tends to cool off a bit after Labor Day, which means that when you list your home you’ll be facing less competition for buyers than if you had placed your home up for sale earlier in the summer. It’s also true that there will be fewer buyers looking for homes but we’re confident that with a targeted marketing approach you will be able to capture their interest. If you haven’t already, search for your street or neighborhood using our advanced search box at the top of this page. Here you’ll be able to see the listing prices of similar homes in your area.
Median Home Prices Are Up
Another excellent reason to sell your home is that median sales prices are up, allowing you to realize an additional return on the investment you made in your home. Various sources have the year-over-year increase at around 3 to 7 percent, with a difference of about 1 percent over last month. Note that listing prices are down considerably over last year, an indicator that buyers are looking for homes that are fairly and competitively priced. Contact us today and we’ll prepare a home evaluation to let you know exactly what your house or condo is worth in today’s real estate market.
Listing Now Means Getting in Before the Holidays
While the winter holidays are still a few months away, the pool of available buyers tends to dry up a bit after Thanksgiving, recovering in the New Year after the holiday season is over and things return to normal. This leaves you just two full months to sell your home, and while that is certainly possible you may find that any delays can lead to your sale closing in January or later. Get your listing live as soon as possible so that you can attract those September, October and November buyers.
