Selling your home seems to be all about timing. Conventional wisdom — and dozens of articles — say that spring is the best time to put your home on the market, but you may have seen other articles telling you that winter, or the holidays, or other times of the year are the best time to sell.
Why Sell Your Virginia Country Home in the Spring?
Now that it’s March and spring is just around the corner, here are three reasons why now is the best time to sell your home in Virginia’s countryside.
1. It’s Home-Showing Weather!
With temperatures peaking in the mid-70s in the Virginia countryside in the near future and the harsh winds of winter gone, home buyers are starting to venture out to see homes in person. It’s no wonder spring is the busiest time of the year for Virginia real estate.
2. Natural Curb Appeal
Curb appeal is all about first impressions, and you want potential buyers to remember your home for the best reasons. Spring means that flowers are starting to bloom, the grass is starting to turn green, and the leaves are starting to grow back on trees, giving your home natural curb appeal that you don’t have to add yourself.
The warm, natural light flooding into a well-staged home also increases the appeal of your home to potential home buyers.
3. Home Sales Peak Around June
According to quarterly reports published by the Virginia Association of Realtors, the number of homes sales and median home sales values tend to peak around June. However, as we noted in our previous real estate update, home values in Virginia’s countryside tend to remain stable.
The Best Time to Sell Your Home Is…
But if you are concerned that selling your home during an “off-peak” season may cause you to lose your hard-earned equity, don’t worry: the best Realtor can help you sell your home for top dollar, even when it’s not the conventional home buying season.
