Why October – December Are The Best Months to Sell (and Redecorate) Your Home!
It’s no secret that right now, everyone and their brother wants to own a home in beautiful Northern Colorado. In fact, homeowners enjoyed the highest home appreciation in the country over a 12 month period (ending on June 30), and both Fort Collins and Greeley are among the nation’s top housing markets and financial fitness*.
With all the excitement surrounding the current Colorado housing boom, it’s likely you have considered taking advantage of the fact your house has appreciated in value, even after doing nearly nothing to it! If you have been remodeling and updating your home, you have probably imagined how much you could get back on your investment. With that said, it may be time to quit dreaming and start acting. If there was ever a time to list your house it’s 4th quarter; if there was ever a time to redecorate your home, it’s NOW!
Although we typically tend to think of spring and summer as the ideal time to sell, the statistics say otherwise. According to Wallethub.com, Autumn (October through December) in Northern Colorado sees the highest ratio of homes sold to homes listed. The reason is fairly simple: fewer properties tend to hit the market at the end of the year and many potential buyers who started their search in the summer months, are still searching for their new home*.
