Market Timing

Timing is Everything, Let Me Help You Make the Right Move.

Of course, when you decide to list your property will ultimately depend on external factors; e.g. family expansion, school schedules, job relocation…but we can help you find the right balance of timing the market, and personal circumstances.

Things to Consider:

1. Where are the Buyers?

We want to maximize the exposure of your property and get as many people to see it as possible. Certain times of year, like August, are notoriously bad times to list your property due to people being away on holiday. In contrast, September can be a popular time to list your property because people are returning back from vacation, schools are starting back up, and people will usually want to close on their new home before the new year.

2. Assessing the Competition

San Francisco is an extremely nuanced market where home type, location, and target buyer demographic play a huge role in assessing supply and demand. It is important to take note of properties currently on the market similar to your own that may act as competition. Potential buyers can only write offers on one property at a time (ethically) and so this must be taken into consideration. We work with buyers of all types looking for single family homes, condominiums and lofts on a daily basis, so we know exactly the types of things buyers are looking for right now. We can help you tailor your marketing strategy to make your home stand out above the rest, and target the specific buyer demographics that are most likely to compete for your home.

3. Special Circumstances

Is your condominium in litigation or pre-litigation? Do you need to sell your home in order to buy another one? Are you looking to complete a tax-deferred 1031 exchange? You can rest assured that we’ve overcome challenging situations like these many times over, and can advise you on the best course of action in order to meet your personal goals.
