 RE/MAX Realty Partners Cape Coral Florida Are you looking for Paradise?  I was and chose Cape Coral Florida.  I moved to Cape Coral Florida from Ohio in 1999.  I was tired of the shoveling snow off the driveway, trying to thaw my frozen water pipes, walking through the slushy melted snow, chopping firewood, and all the other pesky problems of an Ohio winter.  

I chose Cape Coral Florida for my paradise and you can too.  Personally I think this is a great city to raise a family.  Compared to Ohio, Cape Coral Florida offers many things for children to do year round.  Competitive sports were a major part of my life and and here it is possible to play them all year.  Baseball, basketball, football, soccer, tennis, golf, volleyball, swimming, hockey, horseback riding, bmx racing, atv riding, all star cheerleading, and much more.

My name is Joshua Painter P.A. and I am a RE/MAX agent in Cape Coral Florida.  I am also a certified Firefighter and Paramedic.  This is also a veteran owned business as I served during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.   I have a beautiful wife and three wonderful children.  Our family has a bunny rabbit named cookie and our family dog is named tyson.  At Remax Realty Partners we treat our clients needs as if they were our own.   I am a family oriented Remax Professional. ...

Why You Should Consider Selling in the Winter

Selling In Winter Attracts Serious Buyers

The season you sell your home can have an impact on how much you get for your home and how quickly it sells. The season that has the most success in selling homes is spring. This is a good time of year for families moving to new school districts and is also more convenient weather for moving. Because of this trend, most people will recommend waiting to list your home until after the winter is over. Avoiding the winter is a huge misconception in the housing industry and can cause homeowners to miss out on opportunities.

Selling in the winter can give you a few advantages. There will be fewer houses on the market since most people assume winter is a bad time to sell. This gives your home more attention. Potential buyers are always looking no matter the time of year. Keeping your house on the market in the winter might bring the right buyer to your door. Real estate agents also tend to be less busy during these months and commit more time to getting your home sold.

Studies have shown winter buyers are buying because they need to move right away either for a relocation or personal situation. They will want to close quickly and allow for a much smoother sale.

Bottom Line

If you need to sell your home right away, or have some time but want to see what is out there, consider listing in the winter. Most homeowners who are going to sell will list their home in the spring, making for a competitive market. The winter allows buyers who are in a hurry to move consider your home and sell for more money than you would have in the spring.
