Like any savvy home seller, you’re likely keeping a close eye on the market to see when is the best time to list your home. That way, you can easily sell for the highest price possible and put that extra money toward your new home. But you shouldn’t try to time the market. Here in Pittsburgh, the real estate market is constantly changing, and the perfect moment to list your home can pass by in a heartbeat.
The Best Time to List Your Home Is…
That being said, now is a great time to sell your home. In our area, inventory is extremely low right now, so you have the opportunity to earn a higher price for your home than if you wait to list it. Home prices are also increasing throughout the area, so you have a better chance of selling for more money, too. And because Pittsburgh is becoming a top city for job relocation and a top place to retire, you have more opportunities to put your home in front of eager buyers.
Basically, if you’re looking for a sign to sell your home, this is it.
Ready to Sell? Start with These Tips
Once you decide when you are going to list your home for sale, you’ll need to make it look more valuable and put it in front of as many potential home buyers as possible. Here are a few starting points.
1. Understand What Buyers Want from Your Home
In your neighborhood, are buyers looking for properties with all the bells and whistles, or is a home with charm on their must-have list? A local, seasoned Pittsburgh real estate team can tell you exactly what to expect. With our 20+ years in real estate and 35+ years in the construction business, we can tell you which home improvements will give you the most bang for your buck.
2. Understand What Your Home is Actually Worth
Other agents will tell you to avoid Zillow — it doesn’t offer up-to-date listings and it doesn’t accurately price your home. We think Zillow is a good starting point. It’s quick and easy. But when it comes to determining a competitive price, as well as keeping up with local real estate trends and learning about the home selling process, talk to us. We know you’re busy, so we’ll handle all the details.
