Do you wonder when the best time is to list your home for sale?

There are advantages and disadvantages to every season.

Here are some typical trailts of a SUMMER BUYER

Summer buyers Are often families with children. They’d like to make the move before school starts.

Curb-side appeal can be used here to entice buyers. Everyone loves a luscious, fresh cut lawn with vibrant flowers surrounding the landscape. Capitalize on this and get your home as curbside ready as you can.

Also, I see quite a few job transfer individuals during this time. Many people relocate during summer months.

Typically, people are away on holiday weekends so expect less traffic through you home during those peak holiday times. But buyers who venture out ow are serious buyers needing to find a home within a specific time frame. 

With current market shifts, we are happy to discuss market statistics in person any time. We keep informed about local conditions and trends and cpnstantly network with many agents in this area to keep on top of what is happening day to day and week to week -- not just what's posted in the national news. 

We would love to talk to you about how best to market your home in summer!
