If you want to sell a Jupiter single family home don't miss the boat

If you are thinking about selling your Jupiter single family home, the time to stop thinking and get acting is now. The reason is simple, if you believe historical trends. Year after year, there is one month that stands out when we look at the sales of single family homes in this seaside village.

June invariably leads the pack when counting the number of single family closings each year by month. Once again in 2017 it was the busiest month for closings in Jupiter with over 13% of all sales for the year. To find a year when June wasn’t the busiest closing month for single family home sales in Jupiter you would have to go all the way back to 2011. The odds are high that this year more single family home sales in Jupiter will close in June than any other month. Last year, once June passed you by, closings dropped well over 30% in July and then continued dropping for months. In September 2017 sales of Jupiter single family homes were about 1/2 of what we enjoyed in June. You do not want to miss June if you have a Jupiter single family home to sell.

So here we are on March 4th, why do we get going now if the big sales month is still 3 months away. First, it is going to take you a little time to schedule interviews with real estate brokers. Then to take their advice on staging, decluttering, scheduling photos and the clock keeps ticking. Then you still need to get the brokers marketing machine working to find a buyer who is willing, ready and able to pay your price.

68% of Jupiter single family home sales closed with loans last year so it takes between 30 and 45 days between going to contract and the actual closing. We see a few go quicker but with required association approvals that is fairly rare. With association approval, inspections and potential loan underwriting it all takes time. Once you add these time lines together you will see that someone who is thinking about selling a single family home today in Jupiter had better get moving if they want to hit the historical hot spot of this market.

So if you are thinking about selling a Jupiter single family home you need to get moving. Remember to interview at least three real estate brokers and ask a lot of questions. Find out what they are going to charge you and what their marketing plans will look like. Ask questions and find someone you trust with what is a big financial decision. If you want to walk away with the best price the time is perfect for you to do just that.
