For most families, summer is the time for family vacations, warm evenings with friends and family, and sports. It’s also the perfect season for selling a house, offering some powerful advantages that usually result in higher prices and faster sales. If you’ve been thinking of putting your abode on the market, below are just a few reasons to talk to an agent now.
3 Reasons to Sell a House in the Summer
1. More Competition Among Buyers
Rising temperatures heat up the housing market in most parts of the country, as more potential buyers start house hunting. Many families wait until summer to begin looking at homes, and most will want to move in before the school year begins. In the summer, you might get multiple bids on your property, driving the price even higher than your starting point.
2. A Chance to Beautify Your Home
Curb appeal is one of the single most important elements in staging your home, and summer weather makes it easy to create an attractive exterior. Flowering plants contribute a splash of color, your lawn will be at its best, and bright light will show off the hard work you’ve done beautifying your home.
3. More Time to Show Property
The summer days are longer, giving you more time to show your property to a larger pool of potential buyers. It’s also more comfortable to be outside, giving you more opportunities to host creative open houses that attract dozens of buyers in a single day.
