Is Summer a Good Time to Sell?

With the spring selling season at an end and with so many taking their vacations during the summer months, we are often asked by sellers if they should take their home off the market until fall.  You may be surprised to learn that even though the temperature is rising and summer is the most popular time to leave town, the real estate market can be just as busy as spring. During this summer in particular, it may even be more profitable.

Though it is true that spring is the heavy selling season, this summer, there are plenty of buyers in the market right now who missed their opportunity to purchase their dream home during the frenzied months of spring.  There are many real estate agents, including myself, who currently have qualified buyer clients ready to make a purchase decision, but who are interested in areas where listing inventory is limited.    

With historically less inventory in summer, there is a greater sense of urgency by buyers and some disappointment that their real estate dreams are out of their grasp.  Anxious buyers equal tremendous opportunity for sellers as there is less competition and more opportunity to get their home sold quickly and with very competitive offers.

To see if this trend is happening in the market you are interested in, look to the chart or contact me directly. I can access information about recent sales, homes currently under agreement, and current homes for sale, and provide you with an analysis of how it impacts your real estate goals. 

If you want to sell your home and fast, this summer is the perfect time to do it. Work with me and I will ensure that your property is properly priced and positioned for this market.  With fewer sellers in the market during the summer months, be ready to move quickly.
