Thinking of selling your home this spring? You're just in time! Spring is not only the best time to sell your home but also the busiest time of the year in real estate.
With the winter weather finally behind us, spring is the perfect time to get your house on the market. The nicer weather will not only attract more potential buyers but also make it easier for you to stage your home. Landscaping and putting out flowers will elevate your curb appeal that much more.
Buyers are ready
Along with the nice weather come buyers ready to purchase a new house. Purchasing a house in the spring and moving in the summer is at the top of most buyers list. With the kids out of school, this makes it less disrupting on the little ones lives. When relocating to a new neighbourhood, buyers may have to register their child to a new school. This is much simpler to do during summer break than during the school year.
With more hours of daylight, this means more time for buyers to view your home. Most buyers prefer to see homes during daylight rather than at sundown. Not only can you see more of the exterior of the home in dimly lit areas, but it also gives them a sense of what their home will look like during the day.
With the current market statistics putting your home for sale during this time of the year might bring on multiple offers. Since spring is the busiest time of the year for buyers, the demand for housing will rise at this time. Putting your house for sale between the months of March – June may just increase your chances of receiving several offers.
Not only do homes have a higher chance of receiving multiple offers but they also tend to sell at a higher price. With buyers wanting to move in the summer, some are willing to pay more for the home of their dreams. It’s a case of supply and demand, while the more desirable homes will sell quickly; the supply goes down while the demand rises.
Along with everything mentioned above, general happiness and motivation will start to rise during the spring months. People’s attitudes tend to improve when the weather is at its best. How can seeing the sunshine all day long not put a huge smile on your face? Buyers will also want to enjoy their new home while the weather is at its best.
