Many people think the only time you can sell your home is in the spring and early summer. The expectation is we have a flood of people from California moving to our area in the summer.
It might surprise you that our neighborhood isn’t as seasonal as you think. Of the last 50 listings we have sold in the Austin area, only 4 were sold to someone directly relocating their family to our area.
Although our population is growing rapidly from people moving here from all over the world it’s more likely the buyer of your home is already living nearby before buying your home. Sometimes buyers decide to rent an apartment first so they may be living in an apartment down Parmer. It’s also just as likely the buyer of your home already lives in the Austin area and wants to move up to a larger home.
Last year we sold the highest priced home in the Austin area in November. In December we sold the highest priced home in Northwoods. Both homes were large 5 bedroom homes. The type of homes you would expect to only sell in the summer. Both homes sold to families that already lived in the Austin area and wanted a larger home with a floor plan that was a better fit for their lifestyle.
