Reminder—Daylight Savings Time Change Helps Sell Homes!

Real Estate Agent with Boardman Realty Minnesota License#90858


Spring has sprung early this year. Or at least we will be springing our clocks forward three weeks earlier. Due to new law enacted, The Energy Policy Act of 2005, which goes into effect this year, we will move our clocks ahead one hour on Sunday, March 11. (Or make the change on Saturday evening before you go to bed, as it will take effect at 2:00 A.M.)  Starting in 2007, US and Canadian clocks will be moved forward on the second Sunday in March and moved back on the first Sunday in November.

With all of the electronic concerns aside, it is great for real estate. The spring marketing season will get a jump start on later showings. The winter is tough for weekday showings. People get off work at dusk and it is dark before many potential buyers can make an evening showing.  Frankly, it is hard to assess the outside of a home in the dark.

So as you home buyers, sellers and agents grumble about having to manually update your computer, consider one bright spot; an extra hour of daylight during the week for driving by and showing homes.
