While there’s really no wrong time sell a home, Spring is King when it comes to Halifax real estate. Here are three reasons why you may want to consider listing your home sooner rather than later:
- School Year: For most families, their year revolves around the start and end of the academic year. For families looking to buy a Halifax home, they tend to prefer house hunting during the Spring months so they can have time to close and move in the summer, help their children make new friends and be settled before the start of the next school year.
- Weather: With the harsh Nova Scotia winter now behind us, Spring brings more sunshine, longer days, and promotes dreaming of a new home. People are more inspired to go out and look for new homes when the weather is nice. As a plus for Halifax sellers, Spring is usually when your garden and yard looks its best.
- More buyers: More people looking for Halifax homes means you are more likely to have multiple offers and bidding wars.
With home prices starting to increase, buyers know they should buy homes now as there is a good chance that home prices will be higher next year. This is creating a sense of urgency with buyers. That’s exactly what the Halifax market is going through right now. Selling your Halifax home for its highest possible price and in the shortest possible time is a major perk of putting your home on the market now.
I’d be happy to chat to you about the current state of the Halifax market and what it means to be a seller in today’s market. Maybe this is the right time to sell your home?
Have a great week,
