To Sell in the Spring, List Your Home Now

From KWRI:

I love this message!  One of the many misunderstandings that consumers have with the business of real estate is the concept of time.  To avoid these misconceptions, if you are planning to sell your home, or planning to purchase a home in the near future, the best thing you can do is to sit down and make a plan well in advance. 

The average time a home sits on the market is somewhere between 40 and 60 days.  The goal is to sell it quicker, but anything less is always just gravy on top.  Once the home is off the market, it is still 30-45 days to get to closing.  For the best results, plan ahead and get your Realtor involved as soon as you are thinking of moving... Don't wait until selling is urgent.  

When buying a home, the same 30-45 days to get to closing remains, but buyers have to figure it is going to take time to find their home as well.  Ideally you'll find the right home right away, but more than likely it'll take 3-6 weeks or more.  Use my site to get started with your home search.  Browse until you are within 2-3 months of wanting to be in your home, then it is time to take action and schedule some showings! 

Bottom line:  Don't wait.  If you are planning a move this year, contact me Today and let me help you get on the right timeline to make the process as smooth as possible. 

Take care, 
Scott Morrison

  1. My apartment owners never raised the rent above the 2% allowed rent control amount! They always exact the correct rent for your all the apartments they own.
