You want to build a new home, but need to sell your home first. The following are the top 5 reasons spring is a perfect time to sell your home:
- Longer Days and Warmer Weather
The clocks have been moved forward. The temperatures are warming up. People are tired of being inside. They have more sunlight and time to go out and look at homes. There is something about spring that makes us all feel like starting fresh. People are getting the “moving bug” and are ready to find their dream home.
- Better Curb Appeal
Winter is over, the grass is turning green, the trees and flowers are blooming … your home is looking it’s best. Right? You can take advantage of this “free” bonus of better curb appeal. By highlighting your homes best exterior features, you can draw buyers in who can imagine themselves living there.
- Higher Sales Prices and Better Comps
Spring brings out more buyers than any other time of year… which means more competition and more chances for bidding wars. This ultimately leads to higher sales prices. Since home prices tend to be higher and more are sold in the spring, your agent will have access to more comps that reflect the current market.
- Better Timing for Buyers
Spring is a much better time for buyers to focus on moving. A lot of buyers want to get settled into their new home before the school year starts. Even people without children find this the best time of year to take time off to move.
- Sell Quicker
Selling a home and buying a new home can be very stressful and you want to do it as quick as possible. With there being more people looking in the spring, you will have more traffic to your home and more opportunity to sell quickly.
