Scullion News & Resources

If selling your house is on your mind, March is the prime time to get the ball rolling. As temperatures warm and daylight stretches, buyers eagerly come out of hibernation, and competition heats up fast. This article explores why spring is the best time to sell your house.

Believe it or not, the time of year you list hugely impacts how quickly that “SOLD” sign goes up. Making it critical to play the seasons if you want to profit.

Buyer activity fluctuates drastically between cold and hot months, according to the data. That means properties fly off the shelves during peak periods. But sit down and collect dust when demand dips.

And nothing kills sale prices like homes overstaying their welcome. The longer it takes to get an offer, the more buyers wonder, “What’s wrong here?” And the more they’ll nickel-and-dime negotiations since you seem “eager” to unload.

Luckily, market analysts help us pinpoint the ideal moment to get the best bang for your buck. Over recent years, March has taken the crown for the fastest turnaround, while fall performs poorly in comparison.

There’s just something about spring’s arrival that makes buyers antsy for a fresh start. Holiday bills are settling, snow shovels get stowed away, and visions of backyard barbecues dance in people’s heads. It’s a combo that compels folks to make big moves.

So if you’re contemplating a sale soon, forego the autumn dip and let March madness work; it’s magic! We’ll get your place prepped for open houses and seized by some lucky buyer within no time. Then you can sit back and watch spring sales numbers roll in.
