Why Spring is the Second-Best Time to Sell Your Home

It’s common knowledge that spring is an excellent time to sell your home in Chattanooga. But did you know that it’s only the second-best time of the year? If you had to guess, what would you say is the best?

The answer might surprise you! Although spring is a great time to sell your home because the weather is beautiful and buyers are motivated, February and March are actually two of the best months for real estate.

When potential buyers are touring homes in colder months like February, you know they’re serious. Serious buyers are more likely to go through with buying your home, making your home likely to sell faster if you list it now!

Here are three reasons why now is a great time to list your Chattanooga home.

1. There’s Less Competition

February is a great time to begin selling your home because fewer people are trying to sell theirs! Less competition means your home is more likely to sell quickly and above asking price.

This is because many homeowners wait until Spring to list their home. They also might be recovering from the busy holiday season and waiting for the “right time” to sell.

2. Buyers are Motivated

Perhaps they’ve accepted a new job and need to relocate as soon as possible. Whatever the reason, they’re not looking at your home for fun. They’re looking at it as their potential dream home.

This, combined with the reduced competition in the area, creates an excellent market for sellers.

3. Sense of Urgency

This sense of urgency makes them motivated, as we discussed earlier. That’s great for you as a seller because they’re more likely to make a serious offer for your home and follow through with it.

Additionally, this sense of urgency may mean you’ll receive more than one offer on your home and your home can sell above asking price.
