Back to school home selling timeAre you ready to sell your home? Right now might be the perfect time to put it on the market. Not only are interest rates at an all time low, but also this time of year, spring, might be working to your advantage. You will want to get the most out of your house or condominium.  The best time to sell a home  is in the first half of May, according to various real estate experts.  During spring, it is not too hot just yet and buyers are more willing to get out and explore. Furthermore, families with children tend to prefer to move during the summer months so the school year does not get disrupted. However, keep in mind that other factors including  job growth, mortgage rates, and tax incentives can also influence the best time to put your home on the market.

What To Consider When Putting Your Home On The Market In Spring

Pictures taken in spring or summer tend to look better since they usually let your property appear more lush. When taking pictures, think about the curb appeal of your home.  Spring is also the perfect time to paint the fence or stain your deck. Make sure not to show any dried up grass or  dead leaves on your lawn. When showing a house in the late afternoons, make sure to turn all the lights on in your house to make it look better.
