New FOR-SALE Signs
Nearly a third of all homes that enter the fray during the year come on the market over the course of the next three months.
The birds are singing their sweet songs as they busily build their nests. Deciduous trees are covered with new buds that will soon burst with leaves. The days are starting to get longer and warmer, inviting everyone to sit on their porches and lounge in a little extra evening sunshine. Spring is just about here, less than two weeks away, the beginning of housing’s Spring Market.
Spring is not only a season of flower blossoms, butterflies, and new life, it is a time when more real estate activity occurs than any other time of the year. It is when the inventory rises and demand surges and peaks. Many mistaken the summer as the best time of the year for real estate, but it is second to spring. During the spring, more homes are listed, there are more new escrows, and there are more closed sales than any other season.
