~~Spring is usually a busier season for real estate. There are both an abundance of listings and buyers on the market~~
The Impact of Seasons
The Spring tends to be a less hectic time of year from a scheduling perspective. During the fall, children head back to school. Then arrives the winter season with gift shopping and social activities. The new year comes tax season. Only after that will schedules open up for many. There are longer daylight hours, the weather warms up, and people can achieve more during the spring and summer seasons. Because of this, Spring is a more active time of year for real estate.
Sellers often believe that their homes show better in the spring and summer and that this will lead to a higher selling price. They naturally start fixing up the outside of their home as the weather warms up and things begin to bloom. The longer days also provide a little more time for all of this. The Spring usually brings an influx of property listings as a result. This also leads to more competition, so sellers should carefully evaluate pricing their property correctly to accomplish a quick sale. They should also simplify the showing process. Buyers may pass by ones with difficult or inconvenient showing arrangements. With well thought out pricing and showing procedures, Sellers can take advantage of the Spring market.
Buyers also have more time to focus on their home search in the Spring and enjoy the availability of options on the market. It is essential for buyers to keep focused on their goal instead of looking to see each home for sale. The most desirable deals will go quickly because of the number of competing buyers. Those who stray too far from their primary criteria may end up missing out on the property of their dreams.
