4 Reasons Why Summer House Selling Isn’t Ideal In GA
Reason #1. It’s Hot
Summer is here. It is hot outside, of course. So, some people won’t want to leave the house. Also, it implies that bad weather is a possibility, which deters many potential buyers.
And the buyers who do visit to your house will be quite critical of how chilly (or not) your air conditioner is… even if it is most likely THEM who left the door open and lets all the cold air out.
Reason #2. It’s Dusty
It doesn’t matter whether you live in a dry area or a humid area, the summertime heat creates dust, which gets tracked into your house and covers everything. It’s a mess. And a hassle. And when the sun is streaming through the windows, you can actually see the dust floating through the air.
Reason #3. There Are Fewer Buyers
In the summer, most people are taking vacations and getting away from their busy lives. The kids are out of school and time off from work has been booked so people want to take their families to the cottage or to the Grand Canyon or to Disney World. Therefore, there are fewer people in the market to buy houses.
Reason #4. There Are More Sellers
Even though there are fewer buyers, many sellers love selling in the summer because they think it’s more convenient. Therefore, you’re not just competing for fewer buyers to look at your house, you’re competing against more sellers. Therefore, it’s harder to sell your house and even harder to sell it at a price you want.
If you want to sell your house, but you’re thinking about selling it in the summer, you may want to rethink that plan. Here are 4 reason why summer house selling isn’t ideal in GA, but there are other reasons too.
