5 Reasons Why You Should Sell Now in Winston Salem Real Estate Area

Ready To Sell Your Home!


Yep, 2021 has turned out to be a doozy already. While things have changed in how we communicate, work, learn, and spend time together (while 6 feet apart), what has remained the same is the hot Winston Salem real estate market. The Twin City is still an attractive place to live, work, and play. Buyers are ready to purchase a home and put down roots.

All this might make you wonder what your home is worth and if this might be a great time to talk to a Mantle agent. (Answer: yes, yes, and yes!) Mantle Realtors have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers in all types of market conditions so they are equipped and ready to help you explore the options. We have buyers looking to buy your house fast in any condition. Buyers are buying – are you ready to sell?

Below are five reasons to consider selling your home TODAY.

1. Low Inventory of Homes in Winston Salem Real Estate Market

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, there is no doubt you know housing inventory in Winston-Salem and the surrounding area is at an all-time low. Translation: There are more people in the market looking for homes than actual homes for sale.

Low inventory means more potential buyers in the Winston Salem NC area, the opportunity to get a great price on your home, and the chance to negotiate a favorable contract with terms (like moving date, repairs, cash offers, etc.) that fit your needs.

Right now houses in any condition are selling quickly. The sales price for homes across Forsyth county is at record highs with a lot of offers without home loans. Who doesn’t want to sell their home for cash.

Mantle Advice: “Inventory of homes in Winston-Salem is historically low right now, around 1.3 month’s supply – while 6 month’s supply is considered an even-handed market for both buyers and sellers.  Home prices continue to be increasing. Don’t let the worry of where or how to buy your next home stop you from selling. We also have a list of homes that are coming soon to the Forsyth County real estate market.

2. Lifestyle Changes in the Real Estate Market

Life is changing quickly – is your home keeping up? Maybe you need a larger kitchen, spacious studio for your new hobby, a yard for your favorite four-legged friends, or want a low-maintenance abode now is a great time to sell. We highly recommend assessing if your home is a good fit for how you are living today and into the future. Plus while your home may not be exactly what you need any longer – it is someone’s dream home!

Mantle Top Agent Advice: “Buyers are looking for features that support their current lifestyle. For many, working from home requires a dedicated space for conducting business. Buying a home with a pool, deck and additional outdoor space makes it easy to bring the party home, in a socially responsible sort of way!”

3. Sell Your House Virtually

Our home buyers are not only looking to purchase real estate with home loans. We are seeing many home buyers coming with cash offers above the asking price. A Mantle agent can discuss your home selling goals and help position your home to stand out and sell your house fast.

Mantle Advice: “Many who were perfectly content are now eager buyers ready to make a change. Millennials who work are now working from home are looking for something larger than just a downtown apartment close to the 4th area. Many are looking for Winston Salem homes for sale and surrounding areas of Forsyth county! 

Some empty nesters are ready to downsize and have listed their Forsyth county homes for sale. We’re also seeing city dwellers from near and far deciding ‘green acres is the place to be’ longing for fewer city hassles, lower taxes, and large lots.”

5. Interest Rates in the Triad Area

Mortgage rates are at an all-time low, meaning buyers can get more houses for their money. While this perk could change, lots of people are taking advantage of the current situation – meaning they are ready to check out your home, pack up and move in!

Mantle Advice: “We’re in a historic period for real estate right now with interest rates at all-time lows. Whether you are buying your first home or are seasoned but need to get away from the four walls you’ve stared at the past six months, you can go into your purchase with a sense of security and save a lot on your monthly mortgage payments.
