Picking the best time to sell your home is not always easy. However, statistically speaking, Springtime may be the best time to do so. There are a number of reasons that contribute to this. Here are the top reasons to sell your home now, if you are still on the fence.
Beat the Summer Heat
Moving is a long and strenuous process. Not only does finding the right home take time, but it is often disruptive to family life as well. Springtime allows families to find a new home an move without pulling kids from school or moving during the peak Summer heat. For many people, Summer is often the easiest time to take from work in order to facilitate the homebuying process. Not only that but generally speaking no major Holidays are in the Spring. Who wants to move during Christmas, anyway?
With so many people on the market for a new home, homes tend to fall victim to bidding wars. Not only can this drive up the price of your home, but also open your options as far as closing timeline and other contingencies that can fall in your favor. Not only that but the more people your home is exposed to you, the more likely in will sell, and sell fast!
Get Top Dollar
Perhaps for all of the reasons listed above, Spring is the time that gets you the most bang for your buck. Websites such as Zillow and Realtor.com, show an increase of home sales as well as sale price during this time. Simple economics says that with inventory low and demand high, price goes up. This is the ideal situation for any seller when it comes time to sell their home.
So if you were still on the fence about whether or not to sell your home, now is the time. While selling your home is usually a long and stressful process, at least make it less painful by increasing your odds of selling it for top dollar.
