Why Now is the Best Time To Sell Your New River Valley Home

Spring has long been a popular time to sell your home. As more and more buyers flood the market, they demand an increased inventory, which often means there are more buyers active than there are sellers.

If you’re thinking of listing your New River Valley home soon, here’s why you won’t want to miss out on the benefits that this spring brings!

Perfect Timing

Fall is the start of the school year. Winter is jam-packed with holidays. And summer temperatures aren’t ideal for hauling around boxes. That’s why spring is the best time to make a move!

There’s a reason more buyers flood the market over the next few months. With a lull in holidays and school and work typically slowing down, it’s the prime time to take a little time off and get to packing.

More Buyers

Spring is a sellers’ market, meaning there are more buyers active than houses for sale. Not only does this mean that you’ll have a better chance of getting buyers to your door, but it also means you might have more serious offers than usual—just make sure your home is priced competitively.

In addition to potential bidding wars, closing times are also typically shorter than usual. Since buyers know the market is busy, they’ll have the usual roadblocks—like lack of funds or lapse in insurance—taken care of well beforehand.

Better Staging

Of course, the work doesn’t end once buyers are in the door. If you really want to make a big profit, your home needs to be ready to impress! Luckily, spring is the prime time for staging.

Got some yard space with lots of potential? Add in some seasonal flowers and greenery, give your lawn some TLC, and add a few tasteful decorations to the space. Inside, throw your curtains open and let in some sunshine! Not only is natural lighting a mood booster, but it’ll also make your space look larger and more open.

Prime Market

When it comes to housing market conditions, there’s literally no better time than now. According to Nick Ron, CEO of House Buyers of America, 2019 will likely be the best year for home selling.

This year, more millennials than ever will be entering the market—making up the largest share of homebuyers at 36%. Plus, interest rates are still relatively low and home equities are constantly rising.
