Why You Should Sell Your Home In Spring

One of the first thoughts you might have after deciding to sell your home is when is the best time to sell? There is a lot of speculation on when the best time of year is to sell your home with the majority of realtors agreeing on Spring. In this blog post we are going to dive into why we think Springtime is the perfect time of year to put your home on the market!

Spring glow

As the weather changes, temperatures increase and flowers begin to bloom. In the Springtime your garden is glowing and the exterior of your home is looking its best! This is the perfect time for potential buyers to view your home and with more hours of daylight there are more opportunities for potential buyers to view your house!

Demand is highest

Between March and June in Canada houses are more sought-after meaning that selling your house during this time increases your chances of multiple offers and competitive bidders. During the Spring houses sell faster and for a higher price. Houses sold in the first 2 weeks of May close higher than at any other time throughout the year!


Potential buyers are more eager

As the change in weather and temperature occurs, so does a change in attitude! During the Spring season people's spirits are lifted, resulting in more life changing decisions being made at this time of year. Buyers also want to enjoy the warmest months in their new home during the Summer prompting buyers to be more eager for a quick purchase in the Spring.

Just in time for school

Putting your home on the market in the Spring increases your chances of selling before the end of the school year! This means the moving process will be a lot less disruptive for any children involved as they'll have the Summer to settle into their new home before possibly joining a new school.

Preparing To Sell Your Home In Spring


Spring is the busiest time of the year for the real estate market. As a result, it is one of the best times of the year to list a property for sale. Many people think there are only a few things they need to do to prepare their house for sale - but did you know there are plenty of things you can do now? Here is a quick three-month timeline that will help you if you are preparing to sell your home in spring.

What You Can Do Today


Find the Right Real Estate Agent

Real estate agents are in bountiful supply - but not all real estate agents are made equally. Finding the right real estate agent that works with your needs, your neighbourhood and your personality can take time. The sooner you start interviewing, the better.


Make a Plan

Once you have found your real estate partner you two can sit down together and create a plan of all the things you need to do in preparing to sell your home in the spring. Break this plan into bite-sized chunks so they feel easily obtainable given your schedule.


Start Packing

It seems difficult to believe that you need to start packing as early as three months in advance, but you will thank yourself later! If you look around your house and see that there are things you can live without until you are in your new home, start packing it. This will make your house easier to clean and will prevent cramming your packing all in one weekend.


What You Can Do Two Months Before Listing

Presale Home Inspection

Preparing to sell your home in the spring means you need to bring your "A" game to stand out amongst the countless other listings that will be also available. Getting a presale home inspection is one of the best ways to do that. A buyer will most likely perform their own inspection, but the presale home inspection will help highlight what you can fix before the property lists, and how much wiggle room you will need for negotiations upon an offer. 


What You Can Do One Month Before Listing


Cosmetic Touch-Ups

Now that you have done the bulk of repairs, you can turn your focus to ensuring a buyer's first impression is a great one. This means painting the walls with a fresh coat of paint, even if it is a colour you hate. This house is no longer yours, so you need to start viewing it that way. It is also important to work on the front and back yards if you have them as most of the snow will have melted and you will want to work on planting flowers and other bright signs of spring.


What You Can Do Two Weeks Before Listing 


Deep Clean

You want to save this step until right before your first viewings. If you deep clean a month in advance, your hard work will be very quickly and easily undone. Hire a professional to deep clean your house for you, or delegate tasks to your family so that everyone has a job they can work on. Always make sure your furry family members are visiting a friend or family member until the house is sold to avoid muddy paw prints in the house.


Preparing to sell your home in the spring is not difficult, especially with this three-month guideline.
