A real estate agent is more than just a salesperson. A real estate agent may act on your behalf, providing you with advice and guidance when buying or selling a home. Due to the constant changing of the market, the information available on listings is not always 100% accurate, and using a real estate agent guarantees current information about what has sold or is for sale. In addition, due to the complexities of modern real estate including legalities and financial attributes, using an agent is highly beneficial to the buyer or seller.
Along with economic factors such as supply and demand, the time of year you choose to sell can impact both the length of time it takes to sell your home and its final selling price.
Typically, the real estate market picks up around February, continues strong through late May and June, then tapers off during July and August. The summer is usually the busiest time for moving due to schools on break. September and November markets are generally not as strong as late winter and spring, followed by a slowdown from Thanksgiving through the winter holidays.
You must take into account the prevailing state of the real estate market and especially local market conditions. The real estate market continually changes, and market fluctuations affect property values. An important factor to determining your listing price is based on the most recent comparable sales in your neighborhood.
