Selling a home is a big decision and the season you choose to list plays a crucial role. Without the expertise of an experienced real estate team, it can be challenging to identify ideal market conditions.
The best time of the year to sell your house can depend on a number of factors such as interest rates, location, market conditions, and what season we’re in.
Most real estate professionals will tell you early spring is the most optimal season. Additionally, summer is also a great time as the weather is appealing. Here are the pros of selling at this time of year:
-Warmer weather and longer days typically bring out more homebuyers.
-In the summertime, there’s more flexibility with there being more time after work for touring houses and with people being on vacation.
-Families prefer not to move during the school year so they’ll wait until the summer months as it’s an easier transition for their children.
-Better curb appeal: blooming flowers, trees, and green grass all contribute to a well-taken care of landscape.
-Lighting is better in the summer months due to the longer days.
-Many people don’t like to move in the colder months and will wait until better weather so they don’t have to fight cold, icy conditions.
The bottom line is, each season brings its own advantages and disadvantages. Selling in the warmer months may not be for everyone but it’s one of the most popular times of year you’ll see houses go up for sale. If you're unsure on how to determine when to list your home, we can help!
