5 Reasons Why Spring Is The Best Time To Sell Your Home
Spring is just around the corner. Which means warm weather, fresh flowers and the perfect time to sell your house! Let’s talk about why springtime is the peak home-buying season and why there’s no better time to put your home on the market than now.
Tons of Demand
Home sales tend to decline slightly in the winter months which makes them immediately spike back up when springtime comes around. This is because many home buyers also tend to rush the housing market when the new season hits. Which is why most real estate agents say the best time to put a home on the market is in March, April or May. This high demand for homes creates competition for buyers and that means more chances for multiple potential buyers to have interest your house.
Warm Weather Brings Out More Buyers
The warmer the weather gets, the more home buyers are searching the market. Open houses and showings are always more successful during the warmer months because it makes buyers more willing to come outside and shop for houses. Not only are warm temps a big factor but daylight savings time is also great help in spring selling season. Longer light hours makes more time for your potential buyers to house hunt in person during the daytime.
The Market Is Right
The market is in the exact right place during the spring! With more homes selling during the springtime this creates more comparable data for appraisals. When your home’s value is assessed your appraiser will compare your home to homes that were recently sold in your area. Meaning the more homes that are on the market, the more data your home can be compared to and potentially the higher value your home is appraised at.
Almost everyone can agree that their homes look better in the spring and summer! Green grass, fresh flowers and full trees make a home feel more inviting from the outside. Having a beautiful yard is one of the simplest and “cheapest” ways to highlight the best features of your house. Your patio, yard, garden or balcony are all things that can make a buyer start to envision what their life might look like living there. Sellers should definitely take advantage of Mother Nature in the spring!
Better Timing and More Convenient for Families
A lot of buyers like to start the home buying process in the spring because eventually the summer gives them the time to fully settle in to their new home. This is especially appealing for families because it gives them plenty of time to get into their new home before a new school year begins. Buyers without children can also benefit from this because it can give them a chance to catch their breath after the rush of house hunting. Plus not very many buyers want to be moving during the holiday season, so this can ensure that there is enough time to get unpacked before the holidays as well.
