Tradition and market statistics tell us that homebuyers and sellers are far more active in the spring than in winter, but not everyone thinks it's a bad idea to sell your house in winter. That may be particularly true during the upcoming winter season in the D.C. area, where inventory is increasingly low and many buyers are frustrated with the lack of choice of properties.
"Buyers who are out in the winter looking tend to be more serious," said Liz Bucuvalas, a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Alexandria. "That may be especially true this year because there are so few homes on the market. Buyers are eager to take advantage of low interest rates, too."
Ms. Bucuvalas said sellers need to make sure they get rid of leftover plants and replace them with seasonal plantings or evergreens.
