Why 2019 is a Good Year to Sell Your House
Have you thought about selling your home in Decatur, Ga’s 30032, but aren’t sure the market is still hot?
Home prices are still increasing in Belvedere Park, Meadowbrook Acres and most of the other areas in Decatur, Ga 30032 including East Lake Terrace. However, there are twice as many homes listed in Decatur 30032 in the first quarter of 2019 compared to first quarter 2018. However, that doesn’t mean this isn’t a good time to sell. The economy is still strong and buyers have more inventory to view and you probably won’t get multiple offers like the last several years. Your house will sell but it may take up to 2 months.
You may be saying well I just waited until 2020, however, the market may have slowed down even more by that time. In addition, 2020 is an election year and according to Realtor.com “people have fears and concerns, whether perceived or real, about an election outcome that may have them putting their real estate process on pause.” Home prices are still increasing and we haven’t seen a drop in the number of sales in our area. If you bought a house in the last year or two, obviously, this probably isn’t a good time to sell. However, if you purchased a home in the last five years or more you will more than likely have quite a bit of equity.

Here are four reasons why it’s a good time to sell
1. New buyers are entering the market, Atlanta is growing and new people move here everyday plus people are being priced out of surrounding areas so Decatur 30032 is becoming more and more attractive.
2. Interest rates are still historically low making it attractive for buyers to get a new mortgage at an affordable rate.
3. YOU probably have more equity than you think in your home. This is perfect if you want to move to larger house or downsize to a smaller home and save some of the extra cash for retirement or other investments.
4. Selling in 2019 vs 2020 means you have the uncertainly of the elections to contend with. This will be a very important election cycle and there will be a ton of media coverage which could possibly distract buyers who may put it off until 2021 when there is more certainty regarding the political climate and the economy.
The conclusion is that there is never a bad time to put your house in the market if you have followed all of the steps to avoid Mistakes When Selling Your Home in 30032 then you’ll just fine.
