If you’re on the fence about selling your home, decide to take the leap. Right now is the perfect time! Here are some home sales statistics from November 2017.

Did you know that home sales are up 3.2% from last month? And home sales are 2.7% higher than they were at this time last year. Time is of the essence, and this may be a great time to put your house on the market, no need to wait until the spring season to start! Many buyers are eager to buy before the upcoming holiday season.

Home sales have increased 4.9% since this time last year. Selling now means receiving a higher return on your investment.

Know that it’s a seller’s market, meaning listing your house now can have major benefits! So why wait? The market can change at any time.

During this time of year, there are so many reasons to list your home. Buyers may be very motivated to buy before the new year. There also may be less competition depending on your area, because many homeowners will wait until spring to sell their home. That is often the trend, but selling now instead increases your chances of seeing many hungry buyers, ready to purchase their new home!

Current mortgage rates start at 3.14%, while the historical average is 9.78%. This is great news for buyers!
