Pros & Cons of Selling A House in The Winter

Should You Sell Your Home in The Winter?

Pros

Fewer listings mean less competition from other home sellers in Calgary

Fewer Looky Lou's and Tire Kickers wasting everybody's time

Winter usually matches serious sellers with serious buyers

Buyers and Sellers can agree to a warmer weather closing date

Cons

Nobody likes moving when it is cold out

Less qualified buyers actively looking

Leaving the house for showings is not fun in the winter

Keeping the house Ready to Show is a hassle

Shovelling snow and salting the sidewalks

Hard to see the condition of shingles when covered in snow

Buying and Selling Homes in the winter is not much different from any other time of the year except that it is winter!

Deciding to buy or sell a home is more of a life decision. Like buying a car or a new cell phone, when the time is right for you, the time is right!


As a Calgary Realtor, I have worked many winters helping both home buyers and sellers. I have frozen my fingers trying to get frozen lockboxes open, shovelling snow on vacant properties. I am not a fan of the cold, and it has never stopped me from getting the job done.
