There are plenty of reasons to consider selling your property this Spring. As the sun begins to warm the dormant winter soil and the tulip bulbs are in full bloom, the market is blooming with eager buyers. The housing market always gets busy between the months of April and June. Since winter in most places is too harsh to consider hunting for homes and relocating, early spring is when a lot of buyers finally start looking for a place. You must admit; your home looks its best in the spring. Right?

Spring’s unveiling sets a pretty stage for your home to look its best and draw the attention of potential buyers. Take advantage of the warmer weather to elevate the look of your home’s curb appeal. If you have a yard with flowers and freshly cut green grass, why wouldn’t a buyer fall in love with it! Another reason to list your home this Spring; there are more hours of daylight, meaning potential buyers can view your home more often during the day which in turn increases your chances to land a desirable offer.

Now that all the attention is focused on sunny, longer days, buyers, sellers and real-estate agents emerge from hibernation after a harsh winter. Prospective homebuyers look for fresh new listings to come alive in the Spring market, creating a frenzy between buyers, allowing sellers to keep prices high.

The end of the school year is just around the corner. Buyers with children want to get a head start house hunting for their dream home before a new school year begins. No one wants to disrupt the family routine in the middle of the school year, especially if changing schools is necessary and requires children to leave familiar teachers and friends. Buyers are chomping at the bit to get the closing process started so they can be moved in and settled before the start of a new school year in the fall.
