Wondering, “Is Spring the Right Time to Sell My Home?”
The age old question in real estate is, when is the best time to sell my home? Does the season really matter? Should we put our home on the market before spring? The short answer is YES! Now is a fantastic time to sell your home. Here are some reasons to list now:
- Smaller Pool of Buyers – As the market has shifted somewhat from a full-on seller’s market, there is still enough competition for well-priced homes. But that is definitely key – pricing your home correctly. Consult your trusted agent for the best pricing to sell your home.
- Relocation – Kansas City is home to several large employers who are moving people in and out of the area for jobs on a consistent basis. Several people will be starting jobs early this year and will need to purchase a home as soon as they are relocated.
- Tax Refunds – A lot of first time home buyers are planning to get their tax refunds early this year and to use that money for their down payment to purchase their first home.
- NEW vs RESALE – New construction is still expected to be a major competitor come spring/summer of this year. If sellers can find a buyer before then, that is their best chance at maximizing their profits. If given the choice, most buyers prefer NEW homes vs RESALE homes, so list your home now in order to avoid having to compete against new homes.
