“Should I sell now?”
“Should I sell later?”
“What is the best season to sell my house in?”
If you own a property and are thinking about selling then you might seriously want to consider selling in the SPRING. While houses are bought and sold all year round, here are…
4 reasons to sell your home in the spring in The Roanoke Valley.
Reason #1 More Buyers
The Spring is often a time when many more buyers are looking for homes. You see, during the winter many people spend a lot of time indoors; and in January, they make plans for the future.
Those two things often work together to create a motivation to start looking for homes as soon as winter is over. So, by listing your home for sale at the very end of winter or beginning of spring, you’re catching the buyers who are very motivated.
Reason #2 Good Weather For Buyers
While people buy homes all year ‘round, many find winter too cold and snowy to trudge around, get in and out of the car, sometimes in the dark. Others find summer too hot and sticky for the activities involved with home buying.
For you as a seller, having your home on the market during the winter can be extremely messy as buyers track snow and mud through your home. That leaves the spring – a time when buyers are highly motivated to buy, and the weather starts to work in their favor (and yours).
Reason #3 Timing
The spring is the perfect time for buyers, especially when you consider what else is happening through the year. In the summer, there are vacations; in the fall, it’s back to school; in the winter, it’s busy with holiday traditions and family.
So the spring is a time where there are fewer scheduled commitments and a little more time to shop for a home and move.
Reason #4 Easier To Move
The final reason is that it’s easier to move in the spring… for the buyers and for you! If you list your home at the beginning of spring and it sells relatively quickly (30 to 60 days), then the possession date for the new buyer may be late spring – which is perfect for moving.
The weather is nice and the days are long, which means you move your stuff out and the buyer can move their stuff in with relative ease and comfort.
