But, have you ever wondered about the validity of some of the articles, blogs, and advice you may have read or heard about? No worries, DKG listing experts Susan Kirn and Natalie Perez are here to debunk some common selling myths!
MYTH #1: Winter isn’t a good time to sell.
FALSE. Inventory is typically super low during the winter season and buyers are willing to get competitive for your home. You also have the benefit of appraisers using the fall comps which were extremely strong this year, meaning higher sales prices! Lastly, the new administration will bring an influx of fresh buyers to the area searching for their dream homes.
MYTH #2: You can’t sell during COVID.
FALSE. Of course, you can, and we have the track record to prove it! With strict guidelines in place, such as gloves and virtual listing appointments, we have been able to keep it safe while selling for value.

MYTH #3: Spring starts in May.
FALSE. The spring market starts when the cold stops which is typically at the end of February where low inventory provides the benefit of less competition and multiple offer situations. It’s time to get prepared, with the holidays in full force, getting a head start is key.
