Fall can be a great time to move

Fall can be a great time to moveIf you think spring is the best time of year to sell a home think again.  While spring is indeed a busy season for real estate sales, fall can be a great season for home buyers and sellers.  Sellers, your homes have as much curb appeal with autumn leaves, fall flowers and lush green lawns as they do with spring and summer flowers. Buyers, you can avoid competing with other buyers desperate to move before the next school year starts.  Who wants to move on the hottest day of the year, anyway?  People move for many reasons–new jobs, new babies, retirement, new marriages, changes in health and family and the like.  Bottom line?–the best time to move is when it makes sense for your personal situation.  There are always opportunities for home buyers and sellers.  When is your best time to move?

Where have all the sellers gone?

It’s that time of year again, you know, the time of year when we typically start to see new listings and an increase in the number of homes coming on the market. This season the inventory is significantly lower than is typical for the middle of February.  Take a look at the data:

Active Listings – Single Family Homes
   Feb. 19, 2012         Feb. 19, 2013
Andover          100               72
North Andover            93               74


Now consider the market data for single family home sales:

Single Family Home Sales
     02/19/2011-02/19/2012      02/19/2012-02/19/2013
Andover            282  closed sales             323 closed sales
    Average sales price                 $556,020                  $592,129
North Andover                 203  sales                  244  sales
    Average sales price                 $477,291                  $492,311


So far this year,  the supply of homes offered for sale is not keeping up with the demand.  Homeowners thinking about selling may just want to take advantage of this unique opportunity. If you have questions about what’s selling in your neighborhood or wonder when the “perfect” time to sell your home might be, give me a call at RE/MAX Partners in Andover. I’d be happy to show you  the market reports for your neighborhood.
