Does it make sense to list my home for sale in Springfield MO in December?

Does it make sense to list my home for sale in Springfield MO in December?

With Thanksgiving over and Christmas not far away, should you list your home for sale in the Ozarks during this time of the year? You may be surprised to find out the answer is YES!  Here's why:Home sold in Springfield MO

The myth is that homes don't sell as well during the winter. This is no longer true.  In The Greater Springfield area, 438 homes SOLD in December 2012 and a further 387 SOLD in January 2013.

Another reason now is a good time to sell a home is because of all the job re-locations. With the new Mercy orthopedic hospital on hwy 65 and Evans road, we are seeing a lot of doctors and other professionals moving to the area. There are also people moving to Springfield to work for Prime Inc, Bass Pro, O'reilly Automotive, Cox, Expedia and many other businesses. 

Buyers this time of year are serious buyers, not just tire kickers. You may not have quite as many showings but the buyers who are willing to brave the cold weather are ready to buy.

I can guarantee you this . . .  If you do not list your home for sale in December, you will definitely NOT sell it!

One more important thing to remember is, many of your competing Home Sellers will still be under the false impression that houses don't sell in the winter so YOU WILL HAVE LESS COMPETITION!

Give us a call today and together we can get your home in the Ozarks SOLD sooner! Does it make sense to list my home for sale in Springfield MO in December? Absolutely!
