Many of my clients have asked me this question. Properties come on the market throughout the year. But, what is the best time to list a property for sale? First impressions are what resonate most with buyers. You want to have your property looking its best, so typically spring or early summer is the best time to list your home. When the grass is green, your flowers are blooming, and the windows are open to allow the fresh, warm breeze through your house; these are the highlights which will create an image that buyers can connect with emotionally. Most buyers begin to look for homes at this time as well. In fact there are many buyers currently in the market place waiting for more homes to come on the market. They have been looking, but have not yet found the home that fits their needs and desires. Buyers would also prefer to be in a new home so they can enjoy the summer and fall there. And families want to be prepared before school starts in August. Mortgage interest rates are still low too, which is additional motivation for buyers to buy now.
