Is There A Best Season To List Your Property?

System - Sunday, October 23, 2016

When it comes time to put your property on the market you can be sure, that everyone you know will have an opinion about which season is most likely to maximize the chance your home will be rented or sold. But is there truly a time of year that is “better” for selling or renting your home? Turns out, there is.

Spring Is The Best Time To Rent Or Sell

Although there are things you can do in every season to improve your chances of renting or selling your property, spring seems to be the favorite season for buyers and renters. Here are just a few reasons why you should try to prep your property for rent or sale during the spring:

Perfect Open House Weather.

The warm, mild weather during spring makes viewing properties an easy, pleasant experience for potential renters or buyers. As a result, open houses held during spring are often more successful and attract more people than ones held in winter. And, of course, the more people who view your property the faster you will be able to take it off the market.

Unbeatable spring Beauty.

Spring is a time of warm weather, sunshine and blooming flowers. It’s the time of year nature is at its most beautiful, and when nature is at its most beautiful, your property is too. To boost appeal of your property consider investing in professional landscaping, planting some bright, colorful flowers or adding planters or decorative window boxes to the outside of your property.

Looking For A Summer Move?

For a lot of people, summer is the time of the year where they will get the most free time. People use their summer vacation for all kinds of things, often to move. Students and families with children, in particular, are most likely to arrange to move in the summer before school starts up again in the fall. The desire to move over the summer means that these people will most likely be searching for the right property during the spring.

Tax Refunds Add Buying Power.

Many people, once they receive their spring tax refund, decide that they are ready to move somewhere new. That little refund could cover moving costs, help with a down payment, or go towards rent. Whether they use their tax refund or not, the extra money often gives on-the-fence buyers the confidence to act.
