Real Estate Lessons from Lisa Orme, Realtor®: Preparing For the Spring Market? Better Get BUSY!

Preparing For the Spring Market? Better Get BUSY!

Crocuses in the SnowSpring has SPRUNG in real estate! You're right, the crocuses aren't out yet, but believe's time to think Spring!

I know, spring doesn't come until March 20th this year, but in real estate, spring is here NOW

Year after year after year, the highest number of closed sales in Windsor, and even in the entire Greater Hartford region, occurs in the month of March.  If you are thinking about selling your home, that is important information.

Since most sales take 45-60 days from signing a contract to closing, closings that happen at the end of the month of March represent homes that were already on the market between February 1st-15th. 

Crocuses in the SnowSpring has SPRUNG in real estate!

Don't miss the best month of the year to sell your home.  Get your home on the market now if you want to be available for the largest number of buyers to be able to consider if your house should be their new home.

Another reason to get that home on the market now is that typically the prices seasonally adjust upward 1-3% in the spring. If you sell your home now, you will stand the best chance to sell it at the highest possible price.

So if you're thinking about selling your home this year, you want to be on the market SOON (within weeks--not months) to ensure the best possible sale. 

For exceptional real estate service, call Lisa Orme at The Master's Key Realty.  We will be happy to assist you in selling your home for the highest possible price and coordinate with you to arrange the best timing for your sale.

In the month of Dec, I did more preapprovals, than Oct and Nov put together. I'm already seeing purchase agreements from some of those preapprovals. I see the first two quarters of 2012, being real good for sales.

From your mouth to God's ears, Joe! I believe this is going to be a good spring for real estate sales as well!

Lisa, the snow may delay and stall a few showings, but a buyer with interest, will wait, then come out and buy

Lisa, Spring will be here in a blink of an eye, and Sellers need to have their house ready if they want to take advantage of the busiest market of the year.
