Selling a home successfully requires strategy. Many buyers are seasonal, and a general rule of thumb is that spring is the best time to sell. The last thing you want is to cut your sale price or watch your home linger in a weak market. If you’re thinking of selling real estate, you’ll find reasons below to ensure it hits the market in spring.
Reasons to Sell Your Home in Spring
1. More Buyers
Many buyers wait for winter to end before purchasing a home. The snow has passed, making it easier to move, and summer break isn’t far away. This gives families time to settle in before a new school year begins. More buyers means an increased likelihood of selling a home quickly and conveniently. You also may not need to put as much time and effort into marketing since buyers are actively looking.
2. Better Weather
It’s always easier to shop in better weather. Prospective buyers will be window-shopping neighborhoods, and the weather won’t interfere with availability for showings. It’s also much easier to prepare your home. Your landscaping will flourish, significantly boosting curb appeal, and neighborhoods—an important factor for buyers—will be more active and vibrant. Embrace the season by repainting your home or adding new flowers and shrubs to separate yourself from the competition.
3. A More Competitive Market
Your home’s value depends on the value of those around you. In a healthy real estate market, you’ll be able to maximize the price. Since spring is the most competitive season, you’ll be able to better justify a price-tag to prospective buyers. If you’re lucky, you’ll find yourself in a bidding war where a pair of buyers offers even more than you listed the home for.
