Living Green Olympia: Want to Sell Your Olympia Area Home? Wondering Whether to Wait Until Spring?

Want to Sell Your Olympia Area Home? Wondering Whether to Wait Until Spring?

If you are considering selling a home in the Olympia WA area and are wondering if you should wait until spring - the answer is probably NO.

Right now our listing inventory is at a pretty low point, especially in the price range under $200,000 where many buyers are actively hunting.  In fact, when I search for active listings of single family homes for sale in the greater Olympia area, excluding short sales and "fixers" and in the price range up to $200,000, I only find 91 listings today.

And there are definitely buyers out there looking, ready to take advantage of low interest rates and become home owners.  So should you wait until spring when there will likely be quite a bit more competition for your house?

The reason I answered "probably" no is that there are some good reasons why you might need to wait to sell your Olympia area home.  If your house needs exterior paint, a new roof, or a redo of the landscaping in order to show well, it may make really good sense to put off listing your home until the weather permits those to be completed.  But if your home is ready to show well right now, don't feel like you have to wait for those spring blooms to appear.

It could be time to sell your Olympia area home right now!

The spring market has arrived!  Good luck moving some real estate.

Thanks - seems like buyers got on the phone and computer the day after Christmas, ready to find a home - and our inventory is pretty darn low right now.  Good time for sellers to avoid the rush and get their home sold!  Happy New Year to you.

Nancy, if someone wants to sell their home in Olympia, he or she should be on the phone calling you right now. You are so right that there is no better time than right now.

Thanks Cal! I know many sellers automatically think spring is the season to sell, but we sure have a lot of buyers hunting right now in Olympia and not all that much to choose from.
