If you’re thinking about selling your home, you might be wondering what’s the best time of year to put it on the market. Selling a home in the summertime has several advantages. Here are a few reasons why you should list your home in summer.
Why Summer Is a Great Time to Sell Your Home
1. Curb Appeal
Homebuyers often form a strong opinion about a property before they even have a chance to see the inside. One benefit of selling a home in summer is that you can show off its landscaping to the best advantage. Lush trees and shrubs, flower beds in full bloom, and a well-kept lawn all create a beautiful impression of your real estate right away, so potential buyers will be ready to tour your home in a positive frame of mind.
2. More Daylight
The longer days of summer give your home more visibility. With more hours of daylight, potential buyers are more likely to notice your “for sale” sign when they’re driving by your home in the evening hours. Your real estate agent may prefer to show homes during daylight hours so prospective buyers can have a good view of the yard and see how much natural sunlight the interior gets, so summer gives your Realtor more opportunities to show your property.
3. School’s Out
Many potential buyers with children prefer to shop for a home during the summer so the kids won’t have to move during the school year. Because these families are motivated about buying real estate within a specific time frame, they’re more likely to make competitive offers on your home so they can move as soon as possible. If your property happens to be in a desirable school district, multiple parties might even get into a bidding war and drive up your profit.
