Hey everyone. I hope you’re doing well! Spring is right around the corner, and around this time of year I start to get really busy.
All the activity has got me thinking about a question that I get all the time: When is the best time to sell my home?
It’s a great question, but something I’ve observed for some time is that there isn’t one “right” time to sell anymore.
Below is a fresh perspective on the seasonality of selling a home, and even if you’re not interested in selling anytime soon, I’d love to know what you think.
As always, if there is anything I can do for you regarding your real estate needs, I would love to help you or any of your friends. Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or to set up a free home evaluation.
IS SPRING REALLY THE BEST TIME TO SELL?
The reality is that digital marketing and technology give me more tools than ever to market and sell homes, in any season.
Which is true, you just never know when or where your next buyer may be.
There’s not really a one-size-fits-all solution. So instead of looking at the calendar to decide the right time to list a home for sale, I always want to understand the motivation for the potential move. For example, are you selling now because you want to be in another house before the school year starts, or do you need another six months in your old place to finish construction on your new place?
It really comes down to personal needs, and sometimes those needs do push you to selling in the springtime.
Ultimately, a strategic combination of price, presentation, and marketing is what sells a house. It isn’t so much when you put a property on the market, but how it’s positioned in the market at that time that’s best for you.
