Are you thinking about selling your Hawaii house this summer? If so, make sure you read this blog post right away because you may want to reconsider! Here are 4 reasons why summer house selling may not beIn H ideal in HI…
If you’re thinking about selling your house, you might be wondering if summer is the best time to sell, or whether you should wait and sell it later. Here are 4 reasons why summer house selling isn’t ideal in HI (plus the one thing you should do instead)…
4 Reasons Why Summer House Selling Isn’t Ideal In HI
Reason #1. It’s Hot
It’s summer. In Hawaii. So, of course, it’s hot outside (especially in later summer). That means some people won’t want to go out.
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 may be them that leave the door open and lets out all the cold air. (this is a reminder to make sure your AC works if you’re holding any open houses)
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 can be a mess and a hassle. And when the sun is streaming through the windows, you can actually see the dust floating through the air. That’s not a visually appealing factor for potential buyers.
Reason #3. There Are Fewer Buyers
In the summer, many people are taking vacations and get 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 mainland, visit family in Asia or travel elsewhere. Therefore, there may be fewer people in the market to buy houses, even though the Hawaii market is strong.
Reason #4. There Are More Sellers
Even though there may be 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.
If you want to sell your house, but you’re thinking about selling it in the summer, you may want to rethink that plan. Here are 4 reasons why summer house selling isn’t ideal in HI, but there are other reasons too.
