Why is now a good time to begin preparing your home for sale? Mid-February to mid-May is the Spring market for Real Estate. This is when demand (Buyers) increases leading to a peak around 15th May. However Sellers tend to list their properties later, creating a lag between demand starting and increasing inventory.
If you are looking to sell and don’t want to be amongst many other listings in your neighbourhood, timing the market so your listing is ready ahead of this curve can be a sweet-spot for sellers. Now is the time to prepare, see our blog from last month for tips on decluttering and depersonalizing your home to appeal to buyers.
The real estate market can vary as each neighbourhood is it’s own micro-market. For analysis and strategy to get the best price for your property give us a call, we’d love to help!
