NOW Is The Spring In Real Estate

 

NOW Is 'The Spring' Of Real Estate

 

It is the month of December but this is  The Spring of Real Estate. Should you want to sell your house in April or May, it is time to get it ready to go on the market in December and January.

 

Now Is The Spring Of Real Estate

 

How long will it take you to do all the jobs you were planning in order to get your property ready show?

There is the cleaning and purging, the fixing and painting, the replacing and repairing. There is the paper work and preparation for photography.

 This all takes time.

To get your house on the market by the first of the year, you have less than three weeks.

 

When the house goes active it could take month or more to go under contract. By then your closing would be in April or May.

By preparing during the winter months you will be ready to move fast when others are just coming on the market.

Do you see that
