4 reasons why selling your home in the summer is not ideal in Quebec

Reason №1 – The weather’s fine

Reasons Why Summer House Selling Isn't Ideal is hotIt’s summertime. So, obviously, the weather’s fine. This means that people don’t want to go out. People want to enjoy the summer and relax at home.

Also, when it’s hot, your visitors will be more likely to notice the efficiency of your air conditioning. They’ll be critical… even if they’re the ones letting all the cold air out by keeping the door wide open!

Reason №2 – It’s dusty

Whether you live in the city or the country, summer brings dust up from the ground and all over your furniture and floors. A real mess. And when the sun shines brightly, you can even see the dust floating in the air. Not very attractive!

Reason №3 – There are fewer buyers

In summer, people go on vacation and forget about their everyday lives. The children have no school and the parents have taken the day off. Families head up to the chalet or off to Disney World. So now there are fewer people around willing to visit properties for sale.

Reason №4 – There are more sellers

Even if there are fewer buyers, sellers love to sell in summer because they think it’s more convenient. As a result, not only do you have to compete more fiercely to catch the eye of fewer buyers, but you also have to compete against more sellers. That’s why it’s harder to sell your home, and even harder to sell it for the price you’re looking for.
