Getting Ready to Sell? Here’s Why You Should List Now

Spring is all about real estate! Something about the warm weather and blue skies gets buyers out of their houses and making serious offers, so it’s the perfect time to put your home on the market.

Thinking of listing your Northeast Mississippi home soon and want a better profit and quicker closing? Here are the top reasons this spring is the perfect time to sell.

The Market is Prime

According to real estate experts, the 2019 housing market might be as good as it gets for a while. That doesn’t mean a crash is imminent, but it does mean that decreased buyer interest and increased interest rates will slow things down.

Not only are more new buyers looking for homes this year—a recent Trulia survey found that, out of their sample size, 1 in 5 Americans ages 18 to 34 were planning to buy a home this year—but interest rates have remained relatively low. With the market shaping up to be one of the strongest for the foreseeable future, you won’t want to miss your selling window.

It’s Convenient Timing

When it comes finding a new home, buyers are focused on timing. Fall and winter are largely inconvenient options, since the school year is just getting started and the holiday season is packed. That’s why many buyers choose to make the jump to a new home during the springtime.

With summer coming up, the end of spring is the perfect lull between the holiday season and the school year. Plus, you don’t have to worry about hauling boxes in below freezing temperatures or the sticky heat of the dog days of summer!

Buyers Are Active

Since spring is such a popular time to buy a new home, that means more buyers will be walking through your front door. And these buyers won’t just be casually looking—they’re likely going to make a serious offer if they have an interest in your home.

So what does that mean for you? Well, more buyers means more offers, which means a potentially higher profit—or even a bidding war. Plus, you can expect all of the usual snags in closing, like a lack of funds or no insurance coverage, to be taken care of well-ahead of time.

Use the Season to Your Advantage

With more active buyers on the market, you don’t want to give them any reason to walk away from your home. Make sure your property is staged for success, and use the benefits of the spring season to your advantage.

Do you have a front yard? Fill it with blooming flowers and potted plants, and be sure to keep the lawn mowed and weeded. Need some interior decor? Move some of your fresh flowers inside for a pop of color and fresh scents. Want your space to look bigger and boost the buyer’s mood? Throw open your curtains and let the spring sunshine in!
