It's officially Summer. No one buys homes during the Summer do they? The answer is YES! I sell more homes in the second half of a year than I do the first half. I have spoken to many other agents who tell me the same thing. So why sell your home in the Summer?
Well, for one thing, with the green grass and trees all out your home will probably never look better than it does now. The Winter, with the dead trees and overcast skies never bring out the best of a home for sale. The bright Summer days do, though.
Also, parents of school age kids are trying to get moved in to a new school district before school starts. In this area, that is early August! Back up 30 days for the closing process, and a home needs to be under contract by early July for this to take place. We are one week away from early July now!!
So, if you thought about selling your home this year but think it might be more convenient to wait till Fall, you could be missing out on a great seller's market. Also, interest rates are heading up. This will put even more pressure on buyers to get in a home. Call me today for a consultation. This might be the perfect time to put your home on the market!
