Is this a horrible time to try to sell?
I need your expert input on whether we should list our house now or wait til spring. Here's our situation: we have found a home we love and will close on it next week. We do not have a mortgage on the house we are in now, but need to sell it in order to do some remodeling on the house we are buying.
Our home backs up to a retail parking lot which is nearly invisible in the summer when the trees are in leaf. Right now, the mature trees in our yard are still in leaf and are turning beautiful color. The house would show well for maybe another four weeks. But once those leaves drop, the parking lot and its traffic are quite visible. We also have a screened-in porch which shows great normally, but not so great in the dead of the winter since it is freezing out there and you can see that retail parking lot from there.
We'd like to get a quick sale if we can, but at the same time, if it doesn't sell quickly I am not sure if it's a great idea to have it on the market in the dead of winter with the parking lot lights, traffic, etc. in full view. Your opinions are needed!
