Spring Is the Time to Sell Your Home

If you’re ready to purchase one of the new homes in Grand Forks, spring is the best time to put your current home on the market. Hopefully, you’ve been preparing your home, inside and out, to make sure everything is functioning properly and looks its best. If all goes well, not only could your home sell more quickly this season, but you could also get a good price that will help with the purchase of your new home.

One of the reasons to put your house on the market now is that buyer demand is strong throughout much of the country. People are ready to act. Part of this demand also stems from the fact that the housing inventory has declined over recent years, with numbers still well below the normal housing market. This means there are fewer homes available to meet buyers’ needs and demand, but it is better to act now before more inventory hits the market. Now is an excellent time to take advantage of an increase in your home’s value.

Because there are so many buyers and not enough inventory, it’s more likely that you could have multiple offers on your home. That means the potential for a bidding war and the possibility that you could make more than your asking price. While it’s not a guarantee, there’s still greater potential to sell your home quickly and less chance of having to drop your price.

Many people looking to purchase a home have probably spent the winter getting their finances in order and preparing with mortgage pre-approval. This means they can act more quickly because they know what they can afford and know that they may need to make an offer right away to get the home they really want. This is great news for sellers, because the whole process is likely to move more quickly. In some recent cases, the average time it takes to close a loan is just 45 days. That means you could be ready to move into your own new homes in Grand Forks and start settling into your fantastic new property.
