Timing Is Everything When Selling Your Crested Butte Home
There’s a lot of factors that go into selling your home. A lot of different variables determine when your house will sell, how long it’ll be on the market, how much it’ll sell for. One of the most important factors to consider is timing. Timing is everything when selling your Crested Butte home. The timing of when you list your home, when you adjust the price of your home and ultimately when you sell your home. The one thing you can’t time is when the perfect buyer is going to show up!
Seasonality of Crested Butte
There will be a higher interest and showing frequency when a home first comes on the market. However, remember that Crested Butte is a seasonal town. If a ski-in ski-out home were put on the market in the summer, it would likely get less interest, showings and perceived value than if it were to enter the market in the winter when the buyer can literally see or ski in and out of the home. Timing is everything when selling your Crested Butte home. The same thing applies for a home on a golf course. During the winter, the buyer cannot see where the fairway, tee box or green are located because they are under many feet of snow. In the summer, the buyer can determine if the house is a target for golf balls, and how close the cart path is to encroaching on their privacy, etc.
Timing Price Adjustments
When should you adjust the price? Again, timing is everything when selling your Crested Butte home. The good news about selling your Crested Butte home is there are two distinct selling seasons – the winter and the summer. You should plan on adjusting the price and positioning your home for the upcoming next season. There are new buyers and different demographics in each season, but also quite a bit of overlap. If your home will appeal more to summer visitors (on a river, lake, golf course, near hiking trails) then the spring is the best time to make this price change and “re-launch.” If your home will appeal more to winter visitors (ski-in ski-out or convenient skier access, up on the mountain, or near the Nordic trails), then the fall is the best time to make this price change and “re-launch.”
