Typically, sellers think it’s better to wait until Fall to sell, but Summer is actually a perfect time to list your home. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should sell you home during the summer.
#1 – Buyers have better things to do during summer than look at homes UNLESS they are serious!
Buyers have more time to look for a home during summer than other times of the year.
#2 – Buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Summer and when you have less competition for these buyers, that means more money in your pocket.
Supply and Demand
#3 – Buyers prefer to move during the summer than other months.
Buyers have more time off, they don’t want the hassle of having their children change schools during the school year, and they don’t have to drag their furniture thru mud or snow.
#4 – You can go on vacation and I will sell your home while you’re away.
Wouldn’t that be the perfect scenario? No hassles, no worry about keeping the place clean for showings. I’ll be marketing your home while you’re gone then we can deal with an offer when you get back.
#5 – You can sell now for more money and buy later for less
It’s possible to negotiate a later completion & possession date until well into the fall. In September when there’s more homes to choose from, you can buy your next home … potentially for LESS money. Sell High in Summer and Buy Low in Fall.
If you want to sell your home, there couldn’t be a better time than right now!
