Four Reasons to Take Advantage of Spring Home Sales

Four Reasons to Take Advantage of Spring Home Sales

#1 – More Options, Greater Odds

People will tell you that Spring is not the ideal time to sell your home because there is less competition in the other months but less competition means less buyers. Most agents feel that competition is good for the real estate market and can actually help homeowners get a better deal.

#2 – More Shoppers, Better Exposure

If more people are shopping for real estate now than they might be later, that gives you, the home owner, plenty of reasons to sell your home in the spring. You want maximum exposure for your house which will lead to a higher number of offers, and when home buyers are competing to buy your property, those offers are far more desirable.

#3 – Holiday Home Sales, Yes or No

Plenty of people list their homes during the fall and winter seasons, but important home-based family holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving can add a lot of stress and responsibilities. However, there are some people who find this time of year does not pair well with putting their homes on the market. When selling your home in the spring, those major holidays are in the rear view and you can focus on taking the necessary steps to getting the offer you deserve.

#4 – January Job Transfers

There are a few in real estate who will tell you that January is a great month for home sales due to job changes or transfers, but what employer systematically decides to make these changes only in January? Employers follow their industry markets which typically fluctuate and change year round. Therefore, home owners listing their homes should expect to meet transferring home shoppers any time of year.

Tax Assessed Value Of Your Home

I often hear hear owners say their home is appraised at? After a few questions I find they are using the tax assessed value as an appraisal. Tax assessed values are used by your local county to assess the amount of tax you owe on your property. These values should not be confused as an appraisal and should not be used as an indication of value although some times they are dead on. Basing your listing price, or if you are a buyer your offer price, on these numbers is not a good idea. 

A good real estate agent will be able to give you an estimate of fair market price at no expense to you. Thinking about selling we will be happy to run numbers for your SE Alabama home with no obligation. Give us a call 334-701-1102.

Declutter Your Home

Thinking about selling your home? You want to make it look as spacious as possible before placing your home on the market. It is important to keep your home show-ready while it is on the market. Just the slightest bit of clutter can turn a potential buyer away. We suggest boxing up everything you do not need, to continue your everyday life, and either placing the boxes in storage, garage, or one bedroom.

Sometimes buyers want to tour on a short notice. I would let them tour at their convenience even though your home might not be show-ready. Many times buyers will not give you a second opportunity.

We tell the world your home is for sale! Let us show you how!

We Love Testimonials










We recently sold a property to Rachael, who has a unique story. Rachael actually never stepped foot in the home before purchasing because she had been stationed in Hawaii at the time. We ended up taking tours of different homes for her by sending videos, pictures, and feedback! We had a huge time zone difference of five hours so we had to be considerate of when she was able to communicate. She was able to put all her trust in us in finding that perfect home for her. 

We absolutely love going the extra mile for our clients and will continue to do so! Rachael had some really sweet things to say about us: "Chelsea and Bobby went above and beyond to make this purchase possible. They picked up a friend to look at a house for me, when he left the area, they took videos so I could look at the houses while still living in Hawaii. They were flexible and supportive throughout the process. I will be recommending them to anyone looking for a home in the area."
