If You're Thinking of Selling Your Home, Spring is the Perfect Time
Traditionally we have all heard; “Wait until the Spring to put your home on the market!” While Spring is a fine time to sell your home, what I have learned while selling homes in Fuquay-Varina
for the last 30 years is there really isn’t a “bad” time to sell your home in the Triangle area of North Carolina!
Yes, Spring brings the school-minded families out hoping to get all settled in a new home before school starts but we all know Wake county doesn’t have a “traditional school calendar” and hasn’t for a very long time. Of course, LOTS of our transplants that are looking for homes in our area are coming from areas of the country where they only know the traditional school calendar of September to May. So, Spring makes a perfect time to sell your home.
Spring also entices us all to do our “Spring Cleaning” ...does anyone else remember washing walls with a bucket and sponge and windows inside and out with a vinegar bottle and newspaper on their Spring Break?? After a good cleaning out from our winter months, putting your home on the market to sell is a great idea!
I have seen over the years that if someone is looking for a home in the winter months, they “have” to move and are very serious. We don’t have to worry, most years anyway, about moving in the snow or bitter cold but we know our “transplants” do! I have always told my owners that were thinking of putting their home on the market in the fall or winter but they want to “wait until Spring”, why wait until you have lots of competition out there? May as well sell when no one else is! It’s all about supply and demand!
Speaking of supply and demand, we are STILL seeing a shortage of homes in Fuquay-Varina and the surrounding areas. We just put a home on the market last Friday afternoon and received multiple offers before the weekend was up! Yes, the mortgage interest rates are going up, but rising rates are not stopping buyers needing a home in our area! Buyers know they can always refinance their home loans when the rates head downward again.
