The Best Time to Sell a Silver Spring or Takoma Park House is …. August ??

Is the month of August really useless and dismal? – Not for Silver Spring and Takoma Park Real Estate sellers!

Why would you want to list a house for sale in the lazy hazy heat of August, when people are uninterested and out of town on vacation? Heres why:

August is one of the biggest transfer months for relocating buyers.
Buyers want to secure a home now before school starts in the fall.
The inventory of houses for sale is very low – meaning your property has less competition for buyers.
When inventory goes down sale prices tend to go UP.

Check out these Silver Spring/Takoma Park Market Stat Charts:
They show iventory and prices for all zip codes of Silver Spring and Takoma Park in real time ove the last year.  (Notice how the prices have gone up as the inventory has gone down)

There may not be a lot of buyers out looking, but the buyers that are out there are super-serious about buying NOW. these buyer are not the many many “tire kickers” looking at houses in the Spring.

Even though you may have little traffic at your home, the buyers that do look at your home are much more motivated and because of low inventory have limited choices in homes right now.

If you are on vacation yourself, you won’t be bothered or inconvienced by any showings of your house.  You can relax and leave it up to us.

There will be a seasonal uptick in inventory in the weeks after Labor Day and therefore more properties competing with your house.

Let your house be one of the few good choices buyers have this August.
