Spring is here! Ready to Sell Your Home?
Spring is in the air and if you thought there were lots of homebuyers looking for homes before, just wait, they are coming out of hibernation. Once the weather starts to warm up, that is when it is considered a hot time in the housing market. So, if you have been thinking about selling your home, here is why you should start moving forward with those plans.
Warm Weather = More Active Buyers
With the holidays and cold weather (some) sellers tend to put a pause on listing their homes. But when spring comes, people are anxious to get rid of the cabin fever and they start touring homes. With the longer days and vacations set for summer, spring is the perfect time for buyers to start house hunting. Also, many buyers start their search in the spring in the hopes to close before summer. This way they have some time to get used to their new area and if you have children, things can settle down before the school year starts.
This Is A Sellers Market
Even though the interest rates have slightly risen, they are still in the lower 3% range for a 30 year fixed rate (as of 3/22/2021). This has many buyers out there trying to take advantage of these low rates and searching for their “NextHome”. With so many buyers looking and with the low single-family housing inventory this creates an environment where lots of buyers are fighting to compete for what is available on the market, thus creating multiple offer scenarios. Good for sellers… not so good for buyers.
