Real Estate Market Buying and Selling
When spring has sprung, so has the housing market! Spring is typically considered a hot period to sell your home, as it’s the beginning of the busiest season in most areas.
One reason is that people like the warmer weather. Homes look better and days are longer. Families also usually prefer to purchase a home this time of year to be settled before the next school year begins. Homes do not have as much curb appeal during the harsh winter months. Blooming flowers and fresh gardens make the house beautiful and inviting and first glance.
Another major benefit to selling in the spring is that prices are usually highest during this prime season, when the most homes are listed. So you’ll be able to get the best price, in the shortest amount of time.
During the spring market you’ll reach a wide variety of potential buyers, and they will be eager buyers. With more buyers in the market, your listing will reach a greater number of people and you’ll have more exposure. This may mean you will get better offers. It also helps you to be more selective with offers and you’ll be less likely to have to settle so you can stay firm on your price. Spring is a seller’s market, giving you the upper hand.
Finally, selling a home can be stressful, so getting it done early in the spring allows time for you to enjoy your summer! So if you’re selling, spring is the optimal time.
