Listing Your Home While It Is Cold Outside...many advantages


2017- A GREAT YEAR TO MAKE YOUR MOVE
46285504_SIt’s estimated the average American moves 12 times over a lifetime. Are you and your family planning on making a move this year? Don’t wait for the busy spring and summer home buying and selling season. Get a start today by calling us!
For home buyers, starting the home buying process early can mean less competition from other home shoppers. Not to mention that mortgage rates are still near historic lows. It’s a great time to lock in a fixed-rate home loan.
For home sellers, listing your home while it’s still cold outside can be advantageous for a number of reasons. Many companies relocate workers in the first quarter of the calendar year, which means that some people will be looking to buy a home in February or March. And research also shows that homes sell faster in the winter months. Surprised?
With low mortgage rates and a good economy, experts are predicting 2017 will be a big year for moving. To see where people are moving, check out the United Van Lines’ Migration Study. This annual report tracks the states the company’s customers are moving to and from over the course of each year.
The states with the most people moving in are South Dakota, followed by Vermont, Oregon, Idaho, South Carolina, Washington, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, Nevada and Arizona. Markets ‘in balance,’ meaning that there’s about the same number of people moving in as are moving out, include states such as California, New Mexico and Delaware. The survey includes people moving for employment as well as retirees.
Which states are people leaving? New Jersey, Illinois, New York, Connecticut and Kansas round out to the top five states with more people moving away than moving in. For more results of this annual study, go to this link. United Van Lines is the nation’s largest moving company.
