Why 2014 is the Right Year to Sell Your Home

If you've thought about listing your home for sale, 2014 could be the year! Hop off that fence and call your real estate professional because a sale could be right around the corner. There are several reasons why now is the perfect time to sell, no matter what type of home you have.

Reasons why 2014 could be a good time to sell

  • Buyers are out there. Don't be fooled by false reports indicating many people would rather rent than buy. The economy continues to improve and smart buyers know that purchasing a home is a wise long-term investment. Home prices are slowly climbing, and savvy buyers don't want to pay for overpriced properties. Today's buyers are serious; they could be looking for a home just like yours!
  • Mortgage rates are still low. It can be tricky selling a home when mortgage rates are sky-high; this is not the case in 2014. When buyers can buy more house for less money because of lower interest rates, they'll likely do so. However, there's no telling how long these low rates will last; put that home on the market today!
  • Inventory is low. Although some sellers are putting their homes on the market, there are many more who remain weary of the market. These conditions can shrink the number of available houses, especially in sought-after neighborhoods. When there's less competition, your house can sell faster.

Don't listen to naysayers. This year offers many opportunities for home sellers. List your home and sell it in 2014!
