Spring Cleaning and Selling Your Home!
Did you know the best week of the year to list your home for sale is right around the corner?
If you have been thinking about selling your home, it’s a great time to make that process a priority! Lately, there hasn’t really been a bad time to list your home. The market is so hot that properties are selling with multiple offers no matter the date, but there is still a sweet spot even amidst all this craziness. According to data from the past several years, April 10th-16th is the best time to list your home on the market. This week is expected to have the ideal balance of housing market conditions to favor sellers.
Mortgage Rates and Inventory
Realtor.com suggests that during this time, buyer activity will be higher, meaning your home is likely to sell quickly. Mortgage rates have already risen 4%, so it is no surprise that buyers will be hurrying to lock-in a home before those rates rise any further.
This year, there have been record low numbers of homes for sale. On top of that, trends from past years show that this particular week, April 10th-16th, has consistently had lower numbers of homes for sale than other weeks throughout the year. If this trend remains true in 2022, then we can expect to see even fewer homes on the market, meaning your home will be in the spotlight!
