13 Jul Should you list your house during Stampede Week?
Deciding whether or not to sell your house during the Calgary Stampede is a personal choice that depends on various factors. Here are a few considerations to help you make an informed decision:
- Market conditions: Calgary is experiencing a strong seller’s market and you might not even realize there is a major event going on!
- Demand and competition: Some potential buyers may be attracted to the event and are also actively looking for properties at that same time. However, keep in mind that the increased foot traffic and festivities may also distract some buyers from their property search.
- Potential buyer preferences: Some people might view it as an exciting time to be in Calgary, while others may prefer to focus on the festivities rather than real estate transactions. Consider whether your target demographic is likely to be actively searching for homes during this period.
- Marketing and exposure: Consider how you plan to market your house during the Stampede. Is there a pancake breakfast happening near your home? Perhaps an open house at the same time would bring increased traffic.
- Your availability to deal with offers: Stampede can be a wild and crazy time in Calgary. If you’re out Stampeding, inform your agent that you won’t be available to deal with offers until a predetermined time.
