Sell for More
Spring has long been considered the best time of the year to sell homes, for many reasons, including the fact that you’ll be most likely to maximize the selling price and make the most money — especially during spring 2022’s market conditions, home sales are expected to reach a 16-year high.
According to reports, most sellers who list their homes in May can expect them to sell 18.5 days faster than any other month and for nearly six percent more money. The report notes that April or June have even better home sales in some areas of the country than May.
Higher Moving Company Rates
Unfortunately, the secret of spring selling is not unknown. Movers are looking to cash in on the busy season as well, and many may even hike their rates due to increased competition, which can also make it harder for you to nail down a moving date where all required parties are available. Try to book your spring move ASAP to ensure you get a spot on the mover’s calendar before it fills up.
If you list your house in the dead of winter, you may be able to capitalize on low inventory. But, in the spring, the market becomes more saturated, meaning potential buyers have many more options. This is why it’s important to make sure your house stands out, from beautiful landscaping, fresh flowers, an updated kitchen, etc.
School Is in Session
Moving with kids can be challenging, especially if they’re in school. If you end up selling your home in the spring, you’ll have a lot more to plan logistically with the kids’ schedules. This can disrupt your kids’ learning and their social activities and routines. If you’re worried about disrupting your kids’ school year to move, we recommend moving at the tail-end of spring to early summer.
