Professional Insights: Sell Smart Now and Relax This Summer

 Spring has arrived, and the real estate market is blossoming alongside the flowers. If you’re thinking of putting your home on the market, spring and early summer offer a strategic advantage for sellers.
Trends in home sales show that sellers could potentially get more for their homes if they list in the spring. Homes tend to sell quickly during spring versus summer.
Per chief economist Danielle Hale, buyers are more plentiful in spring, which is the high season for home sales. The process of listing a home takes time to prepare it for market, so contacting your real estate agent to start now will give you the best chance of a favorable market and allow you to sell your home quickly at a competitive price.
By starting the process now, you’ll be able to kick back and enjoy the warm months in your brand-new home. Selling now allows you to benefit from the advantages of warmer weather and longer daylight hours while new grass, budding trees and spring flowers show your house in its best light. You’ll also have more control over the process and a higher chance of a smooth, stress-free transaction.
Spring is prime time to attract quality buyers. Parents with school-aged kids tend to actively search now before the school year begins, which creates a pool of motivated buyers who are serious about settling in quickly to give their children time to adjust before school starts in the fall. This gives time for moving in, and you’ll be able to enjoy your summer once your house is sold. 
According to the National Association of Realtors, the number of available houses nationwide is down almost 40% from before the pandemic. That means less competition and higher buyer demand for sellers who list now. Buyer availability may also be better in late spring since many people travel during the summer months.
For the same reason, selling your home now allows you to capitalize on the spring and early summer market. That may help you secure a quick sale so you can be settled into your new home in plenty of time for grilling season and vacationing, and you’ll be free to spend your summer exploring your new neighborhood and doing all the little things to make your new house feel like home.
No matter the time of year, selling and buying a home can feel overwhelming. A good real estate agent will be there to navigate every step with you. They’ll handle helping you find the next home, negotiations, marketing and paperwork so you can focus on enjoying your summer.
