When it comes to selling real estate in Murphy, NC, timing can certainly be a factor. As with any real estate market, we have a “busy season” and times that are historically not as busy. When putting your house for sale, it’s a great idea to capitalize on activity.
Why? August is historically a lull in new buyer activity. Folks are getting back into the “normal” swing of things now that summer is coming to a close. Kids are going back to school and a lot of parents and grandparents around the nation want to be there for it. It truly is a month when folks have many other things aside from real estate on their mind.
So how could it be a good time to put your house on the market? There are a few very good reasons.
1) Real estate advertising is a process. From the time you sign a listing agreement, your house is not instantaneously available for sale across all advertising venues. It takes time to process all the data, input it into all various systems, advertising partners, and for it to syndicate across the Internet. Magazines and other print media have certain due dates and publish dates that must be met, follow up systems have to be put into place, and so much more. It takes a lot of work and time to do so on the back end to get your home fully on the market. Because of that, you want to make sure your house is 100% in full effect when the “busy season” arrives.
2) Folks don’t stop shopping for homes. We may not have as many people in Murphy actively shopping for homes in August, yet people are most certainly still looking for homes online and other places. They’re making their “Must See” list for when they arrive and we certainly want your house on that list.
3) One of our busiest seasons is upon us and you want buyers to know of your house’s availability. Simple as it seems, if folks in the market to buy a house don’t know yours is available for sale, they can’t buy it. You want those with the ability to buy your house to know its for sale, dream about it, and want to come buy it. You could miss an opportunity by waiting to put your house on the market – and that’s never a good thing.
Long story short, August is a month you want to have your house for sale during. If it is not currently on the market for sale, you should want it available sooner than later. It’s our business to help folks sell and buy homes, and it would be a privilege to help sell yours.
