As we come into the winter months, many Brevard would-be home sellers will think about holding off on listing their home, waiting for the perceived “selling season” to put their home on the market. But if you’re ready to sell your home now, is waiting until spring and summer a better option? Surprisingly, no… Not according to the data, it isn’t.
Analyzing a year’s worth of data by season on three quarters of a million homes listed across the country found:
  • Homes listed in winter sell faster: 46 days in winter vs. 55 days in summer.
  • Homes listed in winter are more likely to sell: 59.2% sell in winter vs. 53.1% sell in summer.
  • Homes listed in winter sell closest to their original price: a 2.7% drop from the final price in winter vs. a 5.2% drop from the final price in summer, worth more than $7,000 on a $300,000 home.
Although spring-listed homes sell the fastest,  winter comes in second at six percent below the median, while homes listed in summer and fall both sell slower than the median (12% and 16%, respectively).  Overall, winter-listed homes sell best and they sell 1.4 %  closer to their original list price than the median.
If you’ve been thinking of putting your Brevard home on the market, but think you’ll get better results if you wait until spring or summer, winter may actually be a better time!

The Holiday Tour of Homes in Brevard, the Transylvania Arts Council’s annual fundraiser for their arts-in-schools program, will be held this Saturday, December 10. Chosen for their architecture, location, art collections, or decor, the six homes featured in this year’s tour will take you from downtown Brevard into Straus, Windover Farms, and Connestee Falls. Meet the hosts of each of these special homes and explore the interesting historic features, craftmanship, and collections found within.

The weekend will also be full of opportunities to not only support the Arts Council and other local artists, but to also check items off your holiday gift list as well. Visit Santa’s Palette Holiday Show & Sale taking place at the Arts Council to find hand-crafted items such as paintings, jewelry, and hand-dyed wearables, stop by the local potters Annual Holiday Open House on Hwy. 276 and explore a variety of unique pottery pieces, or browse the works of 28 local artists with just one stop to Number 7 Fine Arts & Crafts Cooperative in downtown Brevard.

While touring and shopping, you might be looking for a spot to grab a bite to eat, so stop by Mayberry’s at 30 West Main Street in Brevard where a percentage of proceeds from lunch on December 10 will benefit the Transylvania County Arts Council.
