THE SEASON FOR SELLING HOUSES

THE SEASON FOR SELLING HOUSES

 

Many people think the ideal time to put a house on the market is when the azaleas are in bloom and the grass is the greenest. 

 

In many parts of the country, the "spring market" is thought of as the real estate industry's Christmas season.

 

But there are important factors that strongly influence the sale of houses. 

 

Interest rates, the availability of local employment, tax rates, and the overall economic health of the community all play a large part in determining how quickly homes move and how well the sellers will do at the closing table. 

 

Your home may sell quickly during a month when the weather is gloomy but the interest rates are low. 

 

Waiting for spring flowers to bloom before planting your "For Sale" sign may improve your home's curb appeal, but may not have as much effect on the sale of your home as interest rates that go up as quickly as your tulips.
