In real estate, there is always buzz about the “spring market.” It gets a lot of attention about being the best time to buy and sell. Did you know the spring market starts now? Mid-January is actually when buyers begin looking for their next move. It’s a popular time as the holidays are behind us, New Year’s resolutions have been made, and many people are focused on where they see themselves for this new year. If you have a home in a lower price bracket that may appeal to entry-level buyers, now is an excellent time to list.
If you’re selling, the key is to capture these buyers who have made up their mind to buy a home this year. Many are looking for a spring closing, so while it may technically be winter now, you’re more likely to get top dollar earlier in the season. February 15 to April 15 is really the heart of the spring market. Waiting too long to list can be a mistake, as many want to be moved into their new homes before the start of summer. Especially when families with school-aged children are moving into a new neighborhood, they prefer to be settled into their new area as early in the summer as possible to get acquainted with the neighborhood and form friendships before school begins.
