Many people wonder if spring is a good time to sell their house? Spring time sounds like a great time to sell your home because the clouds have lifted, the grass is green, the flowers are blooming and the trees are full of leaves. The place looks great. And now that most people have recovered from the holidays, the hope is that the fresh air and breeze with blow a buyer in to their yard. Well, this could very well happen -- but there are advantages in putting your home on the market before spring arrives.
There is usually influx of houses coming on the market in March & April each year. Putting your home on the market before spring and even during the winter months can give you a better chance of getting an offer. There is less competition at that time of the year and a lot of buyers who are out looking during the winter months are very serious buyers... not just out for decorating ideas!
So, those of you who are still on the fence and are waiting for the flowers to bloom to list your house, maybe you might want to spring into action now before the competition arrives.
