Is the New Year A Good Time to Sell Your Home?
If you’ve been wanting to move into one of the gorgeous new homes you’re always seeing on Atlanta Real Estate Forum, but have been waiting for the right time to sell your old home, now is the time to finally put it on the market!
The supply of homes on the market in Atlanta has been steadily decreasing over the last few months, making now a good time to put a “For Sale” sign in your front yard. According to Movoto.com, today’s home inventory is down to just 2,422 opportunities, a 12 percent decrease from the previous month, a 31 percent decrease from six months ago and a 42 percent decrease from this time last year. Less inventory means that on average, your home should sell faster and that your home should sell for more. The median list price for Atlanta is currently $210,000 with an average of 77 days on market, both significant improvements over the same time a year ago.
Whether you’re ready to finally move up into a bigger home that will accommodate your family or downsize into a more manageable space, it’s always important to bring in outside help to not only list your home, but to also stage it. Seeking advice from a home stager or interior designer can help make your place just that much more appealing to get it off the market sooner!
If you’re ready to purchase a new home with low interest rates and affordable pricing, now is the time!
