Why Now Might Be the Perfect Time to Sell Your Home in Charleston
Hey everyone, it's Matt O'Neill! I recently released a video addressing some of the most pressing questions homeowners in Charleston have about selling their homes. The market is hot right now, and I wanted to share some insights on timing, the selling process, and how to prepare your home for the best sale possible.
Here's What You Need to Know
Is This the Right Time to Sell?
It's a Seller's Market: Right now, Charleston is in a severe seller's market. We've got only 1.5 months of inventory, which is incredibly low.
The Crystal Ball is Cloudy: While it's a fantastic time to sell, no one can predict if the market will get even better.
📌 My Advice: If you're unsure, weigh the current market conditions against your own housing needs and future plans.
What Can You Expect in the Selling Process?
Quick Turnaround: On average, homes are going under contract in about a month and closing in another month to a month and a half.
You Won't Be Homeless: I always recommend including a clause in the contract that makes the sale contingent on you finding your dream home.
📌 My Advice: Plan for a roughly 3-month process and consult with your real estate agent about adding protective clauses to your contract.
