Is the summer a good time to sell a home?

As temperatures soar and thoughts turn to vacation, many homeowners feel it is pointless to try to sell their home. In fact, depending on circumstances, it may be the best time to sell. Here are a few reasons why:

1. Summer Buyers – buyers in the summer tend to serious buyers. Often looking to make a change and be settled before the start of the school year, buyers with children are serious about their search and on a timeline.

2. Your house can shine – once the leaves start falling from the trees and winter sets in, many homes do not show their best. Summertime gives you a chance to show your home at its finest, particularly if you have outdoor space.

3. Getting ahead of the Fall Market – Because the summer selling season has gotten a bad rap, many homeowners choose to wait until fall. Selling in the summer while inventory is generally lower gives your house greater prominence.

But as with any selling season, the first step is to work with the right professional. For expert service any time of year, please give me a call. And, if you find you need to rent your home, I can assist with that as well.
