Al and Cal Homes and Community: When Does The Spring Real Estate Market Begin?

When Does The Spring Real Estate Market Begin?

When Does The Spring Real Estate Market Begin?

I am always asked when is the best time to put a home on the market.    Most people look toward the spring market hoping that it will be the best time to pick up the right buyer for their home.    But, when does that spring market start?spring real estate market, spring market,

Al's favorite answer to this is, "right after the Superbowl".   Haha.  Knowing what an avid football fan he is it comes as no surprise that his calendar revolves around super Sunday.     But seriously, that is not far off from the truth, and this year,  he is right on!

I smell the winds of change in the real estate market and I think buyers do too.    There is a limited amount of properties on the market in our area, and in many instances a property that hits the market will have an offer or two in days!    Homes that are priced right and staged appropriately are moving quickly.  

What does this mean to you?  

Well, if you are a buyer, you should be ready to move on a property right away.   Have your pre approval ready and know your comps.  Make a compelling offer.   Don't hesitate.

If you are a seller.    Now is the perfect time to get that house on the market.  Buyers are out there looking to take advantage of those interest rates.  Couple that with low inventory and you have some pent up demand. 

When Does The Spring Real Estate Market Begin?   Right Now!

 

Looking to buy or sell?   Now is the time!    Call me!   

I have been helping buyers and sellers make their move for the past 25 years and can help you too!

So very right Carol Ann.  The Spring market has already begun and NOW is the time to list and buy homes.

Here in Glastonbury CT, we have a housing shortage so I say NOW..there are several price point pockets tht are really hot and will sell at a premium. Great post.

Good morning, Carol Ann....Spring starts january 1st for me.... it's very busy right now....many buyers are out there and not enough fresh listings....

That is so old school IMHO of course, the best time to sell is when you want to move LOL. Take a look at CMA and see that the prices don't shoot up or sales go through the roof any more at any particular time.

Carol Ann...I always think of it starting Jan. 1 in terms of preparation.  Hopefully by now Sellers have done their preparations and the homes are ready to get listed.

I agree, right after ther super bowl.  Looking for the perfect place, getting a loan, arranging a moving company, arranging any remodeling all takes TIME.  Can't be done from Lent to Easter.

Hi Cal,

I think you are right on the money with your the Spring strats right after the New Year. Either a buyer or seller should start the process after the super bowl is played and maybe even in mid January. i will suggest as another excellent blog written by you.

Hi Charles.  haha, Spring in MA is a beautiful thing.

 

Hi Christine.     I say "get it on!"  Thanks!  

 

Hi Chris and Dick.  You must be football fans too!   .   

 

Hi Bob.   I guess it is sort of like retail.    It's March.   Don't they have the 4th of July stuff out?   Thanks for the S.

Hi Cal, Did you folks get hit with this snow storm? I hope all is well and business is booming even though it might not exactly be spring weather in MA.
