4 Reasons Why Summer House Selling Isn’t Ideal In California

Reason #1. It’s Hot

 Summer House Selling Isn’t Ideal in California It’s summer. So, of course, it’s hot outside. That means some people won’t want to go out. It also means that you can get pretty stormy weather that keeps a lot of buyers away.

And the buyers who do come to your house will be very critical of just how cold (or not cold) your air conditioner is… even though it’s probably THEM that leaves the door open and lets out all the cold air.

 

 

Reason #2. It’s Dusty

It doesn’t matter whether you live in a dry area or a humid area, the summertime heat creates dust, which gets tracked into your house and covers everything. It’s a mess. And a hassle. And when the sun is streaming through the windows, you can actually see the dust floating through the air.

Reason #3. There Are Fewer Buyers

In the summer, most people are taking vacations and getting away from their busy lives. The kids are out of school and time off from work has been booked so people want to take their families to the cottage or to the Grand Canyon or to Disney World. Therefore, there are fewer people in the market to buy houses.

Reason #4. There Are More Sellers

Even though there are fewer buyers, many sellers love selling in the summer because they think it’s more convenient. Therefore, you’re not just competing for fewer buyers to look at your house, you’re competing against more sellers. Therefore, it’s harder to sell your house and even harder to sell it at a price you want.

Summary

If you want to sell your house, but you’re thinking about selling it in the summer, you may want to rethink that plan. Here are 4 reason why summer house selling isn’t ideal in California, but there are other reasons too

On the other hand, there are some sellers who need a custom solution due to either the property’s condition or the seller’s personal situation, or a combination of the two.

When the property is in really bad shape, they’re likely going to sell to an investor, so it may make sense to save money on commissions and find their own investor.

Some examples of personal situations that we can help with are: hoarding, pre-foreclosure or other financial issues that require a fast home sale, house with non-paying tenants or squatters, severely delinquent property taxes, homeowners who want to rent back the home longer than normal, or sellers who value privacy and/or are embarrassed by their home.

If your seller lead meets these criteria, you should propose the idea of making an introduction to me. You can simply suggest to them that your partner or colleague buys houses and ask if they are interested in speaking with me. Remember, you are not performing real estate agent duties. See our disclaimer below. The main thing to keep in mind at this point is to qualify them as a good fit or not. I can help you with the documentation and process things.
