You may think that the warmth of Summer or buzz of Spring would make these seasons the best time to sell your home, especially in a country as picturesque as The Bahamas. Here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t write-off winter as a season for selling:
As more properties tend to list as we approach the summer, listing your home for sale in winter can help it to stand out among less competition. Buyers searching around this time will have less options to bid on and may therefore be more inclined to make higher offers on the homes that are available around this time.
The ‘Snowbird’ Market
The Bahamas is a beloved destination for those who migrate from cold countries to warmer climates for the winter, often referred to as “Snowbirds.” Particularly if you're looking to sell a property that’s near or on the beach, listing in the winter may be a great time to catch the eye of those who visit for the cold months and end up staying forever.
Buyers Have More Free Time
The winter holidays mean that more potential buyers have the free time to schedule viewings and thoroughly consider their offers. By the time banks and lawyer’s offices reopen, Buyers should be rejuvenated and ready to move forward with a serious offer.
