Traditionally, the Delaware housing market is stronger during the spring than in winter. However, there are several reasons why it may be worth the time and effort to list a home while there is still snow on the ground. Oftentimes, buyers won’t attend a showing when it’s cold and dark outside unless they are legitimately interested in a property. Typically, those who are just looking will wait until the weather is nicer and more suitable for leisurely trips to various neighborhoods.
Sellers should understand that there is a market for a home regardless of what the calendar says. There is always the possibility that a person needs a home quickly before starting a job or after getting divorced. Individuals who have gotten married or just had a child may also be interested in obtaining more living space as soon as possible.
Those who are considering selling their homes likely understand that properties don’t sell unless they are put on the market. Unless people know that a property is available for purchase, a seller won’t get an offer regardless of when it is listed. Therefore, sellers must do whatever it takes to market their houses regardless of when they decide to put them up for sale.
A person who is looking to sell his or her residential property will need to disclose as much information about the home as possible. This is generally true whether the home is sold during the winter or any other time of the year. An attorney could create and distribute those notices on a seller’s behalf. Legal counsel may also be able to work with the buyer’s attorney to resolve any issues that arise before or after the sale officially closes.
