Should you sell your White Lake front home now

I am just starting to receive calls about selling your White Lake front home now.  Many lakefront home owners in White Lake Township wonder whether it is the right time to sell their home in the winter months.  I believe the best time to sell your lakefront home in White Lake is in the spring and summer.  Lakefront homes sell better when the sun is shining.  It is like trying to sell Christmas decorations in the summer.  Sure they may sell but they will sell better around Christmas time.  It is the same with White lake front homes.  You would prefer to list it and sell your home in the spring.

BUT…….. if you list your lakefront home in the winter there will be less competition.  Early spring is a great time to be the lone lakefront house that stands out.  So you are weighing being the standout home versus the limited number of buyers looking.  There are less lakefront home buyers looking in the winter.  But the ones that are…..are very serious about finding a White Lake front home.  They want a jump on the competition.

If your waterfront home is in just average condition to poor condition I can tell you it is very important not to overprice it when there are many other homes sitting on the market.  It is because the better condition ones will usually sell first because buyers like updated homes.  It does not matter if it is  a waterfront house on Voorheis in Lake Orion Michigan or waterfront listings in Oakland Count y Michigan.  One of the only times a waterfront home will sell if it is overpriced is if the buyer absolutely has to buy on the lake.

So the bottom line is….the best time to list a lakefront home is in the spring when the sun is shining and when the buyers are out in full force.  But if you have a beautiful house priced right it will sell even in the winter.  If you have a home to sell on Union Lake in West Bloomfield Michigan or Upper Pettibone Lake in Highland Michigan or Fiddle Lake Waterford Township feel free to call me at (248) 310-6239.
