Top 3 Reasons why you should sell in the summer

I’m often asked ‘When is the right time to sell my home’.  Truly, this depends on what your personal scenario is, maybe you need to move because of a job transfer or perhaps your family is going through a change.  Sellers typically think spring and fall are ideal but there are a number of reasons why you should consider the summer months.  The top 3 reasons -
1.        Curb Appeal – no need to imagine just how gorgeous your lawn and gardens are during the summer, your home will be a showpiece during the summer months.  Did you know it takes a buyer, on average, 9 seconds to decide if they are interested in seeing the inside of your home?
2.       Decreased Competition – traditionally, spring and fall are when sellers typically list their homes. Off-peak markets tend to have less inventory to compete against.
3.       Rates – as interest rates increase, affordability decreases.  Buyers buy based on affordability of mortgage payments. Rates are still historically low, buyers are re-thinking their ‘must have’ lists.
