Spring has always been the most popular time of the year to list a home sale. If you’re considering a move and wondering if this is really the best time of year or only a myth, the good news is homes really do sell better in Spring. Sellers wishing to sell for the highest possible price will see a much better return when they sell in Spring vs other times of the year.

Homebuyers are less common in the winter months. Its not just the cold weather experienced in many parts of the country, but also the holidays and school activities which weaken the interest in moving. Along with the beautiful weather and longer days, Spring home shoppers also recognize that it’s the perfect time to move and get settled before Fall activities all over again. A home purchased today means a summer move which is the most commonly preferred time of year.

Spring 2018 selling season has started off quickly. Even with slightly higher interest rates, buyers are grabbing desirable properties quickly and sellers are seeing higher sale prices raised 3-5% nationally.

Additionally, we are starting to see millennials enter the housing market creating an even larger buyer pull for sellers.

This qualifies as a seller’s market and with more buyers and a faster sales pace, bidding wars are back as well. Sellers can capitalize on the excitement by staging their homes for sale and pricing them correctly. This perfect combination brings in potential buyers and offers.

Spring typically sees a flood of new home listing and buyers. If you’re considering a move, this is the perfect time to plant some colorful flowers, open the windows, and find the perfect buyer for your property. Buyers are out and ready to move quickly on the right home.
