How Can I Get the Most Out of My Home?

While homeowners are free to sell their home any time they choose, there are certain times when buyers are more intrigued to make a purchase. During that time, sellers are more likely to get more offers from buyers who are willing to pay a reasonable amount. If you are not in a hurry to sell, it could be worth waiting until the real estate market is in your favor.

Keep in mind that selling during the favorable time is only one of the factors that will help you sell your home. Making your home look more presentable both inside and out will help to draw in more sellers and grant you more offers. Clean your home and remove as many personal effects as possible. This will allow the potential buyers to envision themselves living inside the home instead of feeling like they are visiting someone else’s place of residence.

When is the Best Time to Sell?

Experts suggest that homeowners who live in the Charleston area should place their home on the market in early spring. Not only is the weather nicer in the spring, which allows eager buyers to get out on warm days and tour the neighborhood homes. But it is also a great time to make your home look more presentable. If you do choose to sell in the spring, you have a great opportunity to add curb appeal to your property by adding new flowers and decorative shrubs.

Is Spring the Only Good Time to Sell?

If you are unable to sell in spring, all hope is not lost. There are advantages to selling your home during any season. During the winter months, there may be less competition for you to deal with. In the summer, buyers with school-aged children will want to move in a hurry due to school starting soon. And in the fall you could get offers from older couples who aren’t concerned about the local school schedule. The best thing to do is to pay attention to the real estate trends in your community. When do the homes similar to your own sell the fastest and for the highest amount? This will give you a good general idea of when the market is successful in your local area.

Is the Market Currently Strong Enough for Me to Sell?

Many real estate experts say that the time is right to sell. Across the nation homeowners are becoming more confident about listing their home. And the final sale price has gone up significantly over the past few months. Since last year, home sale prices have gone up at least 12%. With numbers like this, we can expect many more homes to become available in major cities and small towns all across the land.
