Spring and Summer: A hot season for real estate

While summer may be the warmest season for sales and rentals, spring is the time to prepare your property to go on the market. In fact, with less inventory flooding the market in the spring rather than summer, you're more likely to have a faster sale if you list soon.

As the economy heats up, students and residents are dying to find home in this crowded city. Get in touch with an agent to warn them in advance of your preparations and plans to list. Ask when they would recommend beginning showings. The warmer the weather gets, the busier our offices become, so don't wait until the last minute consider listing.

Preparations can include de-cluttering your home and making small updates and fixes here and there. Have conversations with family and friends about storage opportunities while making the move, and ask your listing agent if there are any renovations you should make to increase property value.

Lastly, always consider the overall look and feel of your home in terms of when it's appropriate to put it on the market. If your home has large windows, listing during sunny weather will emphasize this positive aspect of your home. However, if your home is a top story walk-up, a hot day might turn visitors off from a big flight of stairs, so listing in spring might be the time for you.

To speak with an agent about listing while the market and the weather heat up, please call our offices at (617) 236-0353.
