Selling your home? Ready, Set, Go! Local real estate markets differ in many ways. One of the most important challenges is determining the best time to list your home for sale. How will your buyer use his new property? Full time? Vacation home? Investment property? Let’s take a look at what’s happening in Brigantine.
The ratio of second/vacation home to full time use in Brigantine is 70 / 30. Brigantine buyers shop for homes year round & smart sellers take advantage of this fact.
The internet allows second/vacation home buyers to begin their search for Brigantine properties even when inclement winter weather makes it difficult for buyers to visit Brigantine in person. Simple conclusion; sellers in a market where 70% of homes are vacation homes should list in mid-January/early February, in time to grab the attention of home buyers looking to be in their Brigantine shore home in time for the season.
Summer & fall are equally important selling times that should never be overlooked. Many people become buyers once they’ve visited Brigantine & enjoyed all it has to offer. Visiting friends or family, down on a summer vacation at the beach, it’s easy to fall in love with the island & make the decision to invest in a lifetime of happiness by joining our community. Consequently, summer & fall are also very good selling seasons to those buyers who have just committed to owning a shore home.
