Are you considering putting your house on the market, but you don’t have to rush the sale?
If you are flexible with the timing of the sale of your property then I’ve got a list of top reasons why springtime is a superb time to sell real estate.
Everyone gets in the mood for a fresh start when nature is also creating a new beginning. Springtime tends to have the most buyers looking for a new home. It’s econ 101, supply when there is the most demand. Listing when most people are shopping will help you get the most lucrative deal.
Most people tend to wait until the business of the holiday season is over to start looking for a new property. They also want to move into a new home before they take time off for summer vacations. Springtime, therefore, fits perfectly into most people’s lifestyles.
If you are a parent (or know one), then you understand just how important school choice can be. Most buyers with families want to get into a new home before the school year starts so they can secure their spot in a great school. Not to mention all the preparation that goes into getting ready for a new school year, most would prefer to be settled prior.
Executives that receive large bonuses tend to get them some time after the 1st of the year. These buyers therefore will have bonuses available to put toward a home which allows for larger down payments, and a more profitable sale for you.
In the spring the flowers are in bloom, and nothing brightens up a home like colorful fresh flowers. It also stays lighter later in the day so you’ve got more time for daylight showings. These factors help you display your property in its best possible light.
As the saying goes “timing is everything”… so if you’ve got the ability to wait for the best time of year to sell your property, then springtime is your best bet!
