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

Reason #1. It’s Hot

Reasons Why Summer House Selling Isn't Ideal is hotIt’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.
