Here are 3 great reasons why spring is a great time to sell your home:
1. More Convenient for Buyers
You hear about “location, location, location” when it comes to real estate. But “timing, timing, timing” should be up there as well. While you should expect
more competition in the Spring, it’s also better time of year for most buyers to start focusing on moving as a good number of buyers want to get settled into a new home before the next school year begins.
2. Longer Days
Our clocks spring forward in March and the days get longer. More sunlight and more time for buyers to go out and about looking at homes.
Buyers tend to hibernate during the winter months and prep themselves for these warmer days to look at homes.
You’ve got a whole pool of potential buyers who’ve done their homework, have their financing set, and will use these longer days wisely each weekend.
Plus house hunting in warm but not too hot weather is just much more fun and productive than other times of the year. Everyone is in a better mood and dreaming of a new home like yours!
3. Better Curb Appeal
You have to admit it but your home looks its best in the spring. Right?
If you have a yard with flowers, azalea bushes, dogwood trees, and green grass … why wouldn’t a buyer fall in love with it!?
That’s why sellers take advantage of this “free” bonus of better curb appeal in the spring. You always want to highlight your home’s best features and draw in buyers who can imagine themselves living there.
Your patio, deck, porch, balcony, or yard can look so inviting right now than at other times of the year.
