Residential Series: Why Spring is the Best Time to List Your Home

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 at 11:55am. 181 Views, 0 Comments.

Spring-cleaning doesn’t have to mean just de-cluttering your hallway closet.  Spring signals fresh beginnings, new approaches, and growth.  Spring is considered to be the best time to list your home, and the statistics don’t lie: 39 percent of homes listed between March 21 and June 20 in the past five years went under contract within 30 days and 15 percent of them sold for more than list price.  Here are a few reasons why spring truly is the best time to list your home:

There are several things you can (and should!) do to maximize your home’s full potential before putting it on the market.  Here’s what we recommend:

Curb appeal is vital!  Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entryways are also important, and should be as welcoming as possible—including a bench, flowers, artwork and even maybe cookies will make buyers feel at home right away!
  2. Be ready to show at any time.  From the moment you start showing your home, keep it maintained and ready for a showing at any time.  Showings can be last minute, and it’s a good idea
