If you have been considering selling your home in the near future, there are many benefits to acting now to list this spring. Discover 3 reasons here.
1. Great Marketing Photos Sell Homes
Remember that old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words? Home shoppers make initial decisions on whether to schedule an appointment to see a home based largely on the visual presentation of the home in marketing photos and video.
Undoubtedly, homes show better in the warmer months. Trees and grass are a vibrant green, flowers splash the landscape with color and blue skies are more frequent. Additionally, outdoor living spaces are more easily highlighted in the professional photography.
2. Timing Your Listing to Get the Most Potential Buyers
By early March, home shoppers with families are starting to think ahead to being settled before the fall school season begins, and they know that the lengthy process requires getting a jump start on the process. Inevitably, with the warm weather, they begin to emerge onto the home hunting scene. The season has a back end time limit as well. When the holiday season begins in November, buyers tend to turn their attention away from house hunting to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Another reason to consider putting your home on the market in the spring is to take advantage of the busy tourist season. People often take vacations in the warmer months and may travel to your location. Tourists frequently fall in love with their vacation destination and may reach out to real estate agents to begin the home search process while in town.
3. Get a Higher Selling Price
Because the real estate world is very seasonal in terms of when people are out searching for properties, homes that sell in the warm weather months often fetch higher prices than homes that sell in the cooler months. This may seem counter-intuitive, since more homes hit the market in warmer months and there should be more supply. However, with the influx of buyers in spring and summer, the supply of homes on the market actually gets tighter, driving prices up.
