Winter Best Time to Sell Your Ohio Home

Spring and summer may be ideal times to move to a new home in Ohio, but winter is the best time to sell. According to a new study from real estate brokerage Redfin, sellers that list during the winter will be met by more focused, more motivated homebuyers.

Historically, February has proven to be the best month to list a home, reported Redfin, “with an average of 66 percent of homes listed then selling within 90 days.” Even in the colder weather, home sellers were found to be better off listing December through March than during any other time year.

But not only is the winter the best time to list your Ohio home, it’s also the best time to bring in a higher price, oftentimes above asking. During the months of December, January, February and March, sellers tend to net more than their asking price as compared to home sales June through November.

Remember, homes that are priced well and show well will attract homebuyers no matter the season, but winter tends to bring serious buyers to market with less “window shoppers.”

And you don’t need to worry about the holidays getting in the way of your Medina, Valley City, Columbia Station, North Royalton, Brunswick, Hinckley or Strongsville home sale. A study found that the majority of those listing during this time reported it was the lack of competition that makes winter such an ideal time to sell.

How do you take advantage of this as a home seller in Medina or Cuyahoga County? The winter season lasts from December 21 to March 20 and working with BOLD Real Estate Consultants during that time will set you on the path to home seller success.
