Dear Monica: If inventory is as low as it is reported to be, shouldn’t I sell my house now instead of waiting until next year? Carol B.
Dear Carol: There are good reasons to list your home now rather than wait but much depends on how quickly you want to sell. If you can wait until next year, you will have more time to prepare and likely more buyers will be looking then. From now until the end of the year, the holidays will take the attention away from home buying even for buyers who are ready now.
If you do list now, you will still reach some buyers but if you wait until January, the market will be likely be more active than it is now.
