Is the winter really a good time to sell a house?

Selling a home during winter is both a blessing and a curse. Fewer homes for sale means less competition, but less competition also means fewer showings. Here’s the good news: the buyers who are active tend to be more motivated and you’ll have to deal with fewer showings. There’s no question that homes rarely show as well in the winter as the spring and summer. But, if your home is well lighted inside and out and features cozy rooms, you’ll blast to the top of a buyer’s list. A lit fireplace on a cold day creates a cozy atmosphere that is hard to beat. Use extra lighting and warm rooms to slow your prospective buyers down and appreciate everything your home has to offer.

I have never enjoyed working with any agent as much as I enjoyed working with Tara Irby. She is smart, a delightful person and knows what she is doing. Tara sold my house in one day and made the process as easy for me as possible. I feel very fortunate to have found her among all the agent/brokers in Asheville. She is a jewel!

We found Tara Irby to be outstanding! She completely understood and respected our needs and anytime there was a house we wanted to see, she was able to get us in to see it very quickly. We also found Ms. Irby to be helpful on every matter concerning the house; i.e., any questions we had that she did not know the answer to, she immediately made phone calls, then got back to us very quickly. Truly, Ms. Irby was completely professional, and an absolute joy to work with! We absolutely love our house, which is exactly what we were looking for. We cannot say enough good things about Ms. Irby, and would not hesitate to recommend her in the future!

We started our house hunting with Tara in May 2016 and we closed our dream house in December 30, 2016. We worked with her for around 7.5 months so I guess we got to know her very well. Tara was very professional, well informed and always accessible even at the weekends and evenings. She was very patient, friendly, quick and on time. She never pushed us to buy a specific house. On the contrary, she was always on our side. I can tell a lot of good things about Tara but I would say she is definitely the agent that you need and I strongly recommend her to our family members and friends.

I was very pleased with how Tara handled the sale of my property. From the beginning she knew how important communication was to me especially with me being out of the country. Tara ensured that I was always informed on what was going on and needed to be done even with a 9 1/2 hours difference in time. She was professional at all times and communicated very well my options and best approaches. It was not one time that I wondered or questioned if I chose a good agent. Because of these things along with her understanding of the housing market, I would definitely recommend Tara to other sellers and buyers.
