Waiting till Spring to List Your Murphy, NC Home?

Spring is a crucial time of the year for real estate sales here in Murphy, NC and buyers are searching NOW for their new home or land in our beautiful North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee mountains.

Don’t wait until Spring to list your home!

For those who are looking to buy as well as sellers who said last year that they would list again "in the spring" -- when does the season actually get started?

Although the official start of spring is March 20th, we advise our clients to list their property no later than February. Some sellers feel they want to wait until after Easter, but that might be a little too late, especially since this year Easter falls on April 24th.

Now is the time we start to see buyers beginning their search, requesting more information and planning on making a visit to the mountains for spring. The inventory of homes has decreased and one thing we hear a lot is “we just can’t find the right home”, so it's in the best interest of all to list sooner rather than later no matter what the season.

If you want to sell – price it right and it’s
always the right time to market and sell!

Absolultely true, Carol.  Whenever you want to sell is the right time.  If your area is anything like ours there are buyers chomping at the bit for new inventory.

We also have many buyers in my area who want their house FOR spring, not in spring.

I couldn't agree more! Especially after the Holidays are over and with the "new year" plans, many buyers are planning for Spring--they aren't waiting.  For those who want to sell, now is an excellent time to get the house ready and get it on the market.

Lee & Carol, what a great post.  So many folks wait before listing their home and then find the competition stifling.  Your information sure is good!  We need to get out the word out!

Lee & Carol ~ I could never figure out where people got that from.  Oh take is off the market until spring or we are not listing until spring.  HUH?  Now Anytime is a good time to list your home or land if your ready to sell it.  They say the average person starts looking way before they buy, so who is picking that time of the year that someone starts looking?  I don't plan a certain time of year to buy anything.  When I am ready, I'm ready to buy! 

p.s. Springs sounds good right about now.
