When is the best time to sell?
The Time is Now
In my many years of experience selling homes, I’ve listened to the stories of many people who were ready for a positive housing shift and realized they needed a little guidance navigating their way through the home-selling process. When is the best time to sell? What upgrades are necessary to prepare a home for today’s market?
Here are the secrets I share with my sellers:
The best advice for prepping your home for the market is to declutter, deep clean, and freshen up both paint and landscaping. Also, your energy is best spent enhancing kitchen and bath features, more than any other areas of your home. I advise my sellers to only make upgrades to their homes that will result in a 3 to 1 return on their initial investment. Following these seller tips will ensure homes are properly updated without overspending.
Soon-to-be sellers also often ask, “What’s the ideal time of year to sell my home?” In today’s market, the perfect time is now! There are currently more buyers than available homes; when listed at the right price, a home in a desirable area won’t stay on the market long.
