Though the spring is the best time to buy or sell a house for many, it is still possible to successfully sell your house outside that period. Since there is less competition outside of the busy spring season, you may not get a bidding war for your house, but you will likely not have to pay maximum dollar for your new house.
Many sellers decide not to put their homes on the market in the spring due to the saturated market at that time of year. If your home is attractive to families and near good schools then summer is just as good as time as spring to sell. However, if your home is in a resort area or in a young professional neighbourhood or retired community, then the school calendar is irrelevant.
Homeowners looking to sell are always caught in the predicament of when to sell. They are wondering if the market will go up anytime soon, if they should wait a few months, if prices will strengthen, etc. The answer is sell or buy only when it’s right for you!
Real Estate writer, Ricky Chadha states that in 2013 the average home price in the GTA in December was $478,700, compared to the peak of $515,869 in April. Therefore, it is all relevant, there really isn’t a good or bad time to sell your home, you need to do it when it’s best for you.
