Some say spring is the time of year for renewal, while others say it’s a time for growth. Well, we at The Mike McCann Team think it’s the perfect time to sell a home! To us, spring simply means more. More buyers in the market, more chances to show your property off, and most importantly, more opportunities to make a sale.

If you’re looking to put your home on the market this spring, take a look at our video for some helpful tips for preparing your home for a spring showing!

Here are a few reasons why we consider spring to be the best time to sell a home in Philadelphia:

Better Weather Brings More Buyers

It’s no secret that spring offers some of the best weather conditions of the year. It’s no longer cold, but it’s not too hot either, making it the perfect time of year to go house hunting. During the spring, many buyers simply spend the day walking around their desired neighborhood and scouting out potential properties. Many home buyers choose spring as the season for their house hunting because it gives them enough time to find the perfect place and settle in before the school year starts and the holiday season hits.

Longer Days Mean More Showings

While longer days may not sound so appealing if you’re not a fan of spending more time in the office, the mention of longer days is music to a home seller’s ears — or at least it should be. More sunlight means that there is more time in the day for buyers to view your home. During the winter months, some buyers struggle to view houses because the showing often occurs during work hours or after the sun has gone down. But during the spring, potential buyers can swing by your property on their way home from work and still have enough sunlight left to get a good impression of your property.

More Buyers Leads to More Competition

Having more buyers in the marketplace is always a good thing for a person looking to sell, especially if there are more buyers than there are available homes.  When the market is flooded with eager buyers, it can lead to more competition, which means you have more opportunities to reap the benefits of bidding wars and higher sales prices. Furthermore, higher levels of competition allow your real estate agent to access comparable houses that better reflect the current market and value of your home.
