Thinking of Selling? Why Now is the Time

stm-share12

It is common knowledge that a large number of homes sell during the spring-buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their homes on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.

大家都知道,大量的房屋在春季售出,出於這個原因,許多屋主堅持等到春季才賣屋,但問題是,在今年來說這是否會是一個好的銷售策略。

The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring, as compared to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months in which most people listed their homes for sale in 2016. Here is a graphic showing the results:

與其他屋主同時一起在春天賣屋,增加了屋主們之間的競爭。與其他季節相比,真的有較多房屋於春天上市出售嗎?全國房地產經紀人協會(NAR)最近公佈了大多數人在2016年出售房屋的月份,以下為圖表顯示結果:

The three months in the second quarter of the year (represented in red) are consistently the most popular months for sellers to list their homes on the market. Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,820,000.

第二季度的三個月(以紅色表示)是賣家房屋上市最受歡迎的月份。去年一月份在市場上出售的房屋數量為182萬棟房屋。

That number spiked to 2,140,000 by May!
市場上出售屋數量到5月份達到214萬棟房屋!

What does this mean to you?
這對你意味著什麼呢?

With the national job situation improving, and mortgage interest rates projected to rise later in the year, buyers are not waiting until the spring; they are out looking for a home right now. If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition for a buyer.

隨著全國就業狀況的改善,貸款利率預計將在今年上漲,買家不會等到春天才買房; 他們現在正在尋找一個合適的家。 如果你打算今年賣屋,等待到春天才上市出售意味著你將與其他的屋主競爭爭取買家。

Bottom Line
結論

It may make sense to beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market in the spring and list your home today.

不要等到春天才進入市場增加競爭,而是現在就上市出售你的房屋,才是最佳的銷售策略!
