Top Reasons to Sell Your Home in Spring!3/19/2019
- Buyers are ready to purchase!
Spring brings in an influx of eager buyers. Winter in the U.P. can be long and we certainly have had a lot of snow this year! As the weather slowly warms and the snow melts, buyers often start actively looking for houses in the spring. Also keep in mind: Many sellers decide to put their house on the market in the spring - we recommend getting your property up for sale early to get a lead on the competition!
- Everyone wants to get settled before summer's end!
Homebuyers are anxious to get through the homebuying process in the spring. Relocating and getting settled takes time, especially if they have a family. Buyers often hope to move in their new home between late spring and early summer so they are well settled in before the upcoming school year.
- Homes sell faster and for more!
According to researchers at Zillow, springtime is the best time to sell your home. Their studies show that homes listed between mid-March and mid-April sold about 15% quicker than homes listed during any other time. Granted, those are nationwide statistics. Yet here in the U.P. we definitely see a similar advantage to getting your home on the market in early spring.
