Q. Should I list my house now or wait for the spring?
A. Spring is traditionally the busiest time of year for homebuying, but winter has its advantages. Housing inventory tends to be lower in winter, which can give sellers leverage. But buying a house in winter can be challenging for the same reasons that selling can be advantageous. Ultimately, when to list comes down the goals of each homeowner. Motivated sellers might want to take advantage of a slower time of year and worry about buying later. Someone looking to choose from a larger number of houses might be best suited to act when Old Man Winter bids adieu.
