- You’ll have more competition in Spring! – While its true that more homes are sold in Spring than any other time of year, there are also many more homes on the market, creating more homes for sale for you to compete with. Wait until spring and you’ll have more competition.
- Many job transfers happen at the beginning of the year – and those buyers are already looking online to see which homes are available to purchase. And when those people need to buy a home… they plan a buying trip and typically buy FAST!
- Interest rates may be higher in the spring, meaning that fewer people will be able to afford your home. CMHC has already raised the thresh hold for buyers, reducing the number of buyers who can already afford to buy your home.
- You get more serious buyers in winter– Spring brings out the ‘curious neighbours’ open house crowd, looking to come to open houses to eat your Realtors treats but having no intention of buying. Winter shoppers are often more focused and motivated to buy.
