Is Spring a good time to list your home? We often hear the term ‘spring real estate’
market. What makes spring such a special time to list your home?
One of the biggest advantages of listing your home in the spring is that buyers are emerging from their winter slumber. This is because many people are looking to move before the start of the school year or the summer vacation season. As a result, there is more competition for homes in the spring, which can drive up prices. (AND THAT’S GOOD FOR SELLERS!)
Another advantage to listing your home in the spring is that the inventory is low. Buyers
are eager to secure a home which may help generate a greater ‘buzz’ for your property.
Three Key Circumstances to Keep in Mind
Remember that as a seller, you are in complete control regarding the timing of your
home sale. Ultimately the best time to list your home is the best time for you. And
will depend on your individual circumstances. Consider these factors:
1. How is the market in your specific neighborhood? I am an expert on Bay Area markets. Let me put my expertise to work for you.
2. How is your financial situation? Do you need to move immediately? We can discuss the financial constraints of the transaction to make sure that you are
comfortable financially with the decisions that you make to list your home.
3. Do you have specific needs for your personal schedule? Together, we can carefully consider your personal and job commitments and schedule accordingly. Do you need
rentback to remain in the area while the kids finish school? I can help you prioritize
your needs to determine the proper schedule for listing your home.
