Should I sell this fall or wait until 2021?

Posted by Dan Miller, REALTOR on Sunday, September 27th, 2020 at 6:42am.

We're getting asked this question a lot these days, and here's our take: Although there are no guarantees about the state of the market in 2021, we do know the Madison area real estate market is very favorable for sellers right now. Here's what we're seeing in the market as we approach the month of October.

For starters, mortgage rates are historically low, and buyers are buying. Dane County home buyers are writing offers at a much faster pace right now than they were during the same time period in 2019.

Dane County home prices are trending favorably for sellers, too. Many properties are receiving multiple offers right now and selling for well above the list. Home prices are on pace to set another record in September.

So, if you're planning to sell in the near future, but you're not sure when...

We recommend you take action right now and act as if you're going to sell your home this fall. Start by calling one of our Madison REALTORS for a complimentary consultation. We'll tell you how much your home is worth in today's market and recommend some simple cosmetic updates that will increase your home's value. We'll also help you stage your home and capture eye-popping photos of your property. At the same time, we'll create all of your supplementary marketing materials for you. 

Once we've completed this work we'll assess the market with you and determine whether or not it's the right time for you to sell. If you decide it is the right time to sell, we'll launch your listing and sell your home quickly and for a great price. If you decide it's better to wait, that's OK. You'll be well-prepared to sell your home when the time is right. When you do decide to sell, we'll "flip the switch" and launch your listing with all of your beautiful photos and marketing materials all ready to go. 

We don't know what the future holds for the world of real estate in 2021. But we do know when you proactively plan and prepare for your sale, you will ease your stress and worry during these complex times. Contact us for a helpful conversation, and let's start working on your plan. We're here to partner with you and guide you to a successful sale under any set of circumstances.
