With many sellers waiting until spring to list their homes and inventory at new lows, is now the time to sell? Here to discuss the Fall real estate market is Nick Krautter from Keller Williams Real Estate and

Q – So the big question is should you sell now or wait until spring?

A – I’m seeing huge activity in the market, many homes that are new to the market are getting multiple offers. There just isn’t that much to choose from right now and buyers in the fall are serious buyers.For the majority of sellers now is the time to be on the market.

Q – Who would you advise to wait until summer?

A – I think waterfront homes and properties with acreage do better in the spring and summer. In the winter no one is using their boats are wanting to take care of a large parcel of land but in the summer those things become assets to the property.

Q – For sellers that are waiting until Spring what is the ideal time to list?

A – I like to go on the market right around Valentines Day. You have buyers starting to look but not a lot of competition from other sellers. There’s a window of opportunity there as well.
