Knowing Which Months to Buy and Sell Can Save You Money

You may not always have a choice when it comes to when your home sells or you find a new home for sale, but you can choose when you start listing or searching for a new home. Surprisingly, there are a few months that perform better than others for both buying and selling a home. At Bucks Co Real Estate, I always strive to help my clients and buyers make the best decision possible on their homes. Here’s what you need to know about when to buy or sell a house.

When is the Best Time to Buy a Home?

If you want to get the best price on your home, then you’ll want to buy it in the spring-summer. This is when most houses are listed for sale. The warmer weather makes visiting homes more pleasant. It’s also less rainy, so you can count on good weather for your tour.

Usually, there are more homes for sale in the summer, and sellers are a bit more anxious. This year has not been the norm.  Inventory has been low, and there have been more buyers than sellers.   You don’t want to wait too long in the summer, however, if you have kids. Understandably, you’d like to get them settled before the new school year begins. Because negotiations can sometimes take a while, you’ll want to get started in early spring.

When is the Best Time to Sell a Home?

It’s nearly a tie between fall and spring. During spring, you’re able to show off your home in its full beauty. This is when flowers are sprouting, the grass is green, and the trees have all their leaves. The weather can be a bit unpredictable which means you might have muddy tracks throughout your homes.

The advantage is that you’re getting your house out there before anyone else. Buyers who want to move quickly may show an interest in your home. Before there’s too much competition, you can sell your home at a decent price.

The same goes for the fall season. There’s less competition driving down the price of your home. You’ll also find that costs of renovation are typically lower during the fall. Buyers may also be pressured to make their choice fast because of the looming school season.
