It may seem obvious that spring is a great time of year to sell your home. After all, the blooming trees and sprouting grass surrounded by sunshine are the perfect backdrop for any house. If you’ve been thinking of selling, this is the time.
It’s not just the beautiful time of year that makes spring the most popular time to list a home though. Take a look at some additional reasons you should get started on the process this spring:
Cabin Fever: After a long winter indoors, potential buyers are more convinced than ever that they need more space, or at least a different space, to live. The warm temperatures and memories of too-close-for-comfort quarters drive many people out to look for more suitable homes.
There’s also the reminder that another round of winter is always coming, and buyers feel a push to close on a home and get settled before school starts and cool temperatures are on the horizon again.
The Market: It’s still a seller’s market, and interest rates are still favorable for buying a home. While new homes may be relieving a little demand in some areas, the market is still overwhelmingly in favor of sellers. Interest rates are at a historically low rate.
You’ll Get a Head Start: The first two weeks in April are some of the busiest in the year, so get out ahead of the crowd by planning early. It’s a good idea to invite Dani Beyer Real Estate to walk through your home and make recommendations. They’ll be able to help you prioritize which projects or updates might help you sell your home quickly and at the best possible price. Here are some other things that are important to consider:
- Prepare to sell your home. This means boosting curb appeal with flowers, a freshly-painted door and good landscaping. Inside, it means fresh paint, rooms free of clutter and freshly cleaned. It may also mean a few repairs or updates.
- Price it right, right away. If you go too high at first, you’ll risk alienating potential buyers who have ruled your home out and moved on to other properties. Dani Beyer Real Estate will help you identify the price that gets the most possible profit for you while selling your home quickly.
- List on Thursday. A study by Redfin showed that houses listed on Thursday sold at a higher price and more quickly than homes listed any other day of the week. It allows buyers to plan their weekend and they’ll prioritize the homes they spotted early in their planning.
