When is the Best Time To Sell Your Home?

This year has brought some unexpected challenges and has left people wondering about the impact on the normal process of buying and selling homes. Fortunately, if you’ve been wanting to purchase one of our Chesterfield VA homes, now is a surprisingly good time to do so, thanks in part to a strong seller’s market and record low mortgage rates. We’re also at a great time to sell. Need convincing? Here are some great reasons why you should seriously consider selling your home now. Best of all, we have move-in-ready homes to ensure you have a wonderful new home to move into when your home sells.

When it comes to deciding if it’s the right time to sell, the most important factor is deciding if it’s the right time for you and your family personally. After all, it’s usually personal reasons that have you considering a move in the first place. Perhaps you want a different school district as your children come of age. Or, with more people working and studying from home these days, you’ve maybe realized that your current home just isn’t conducive to everyone being able to work and study effectively. Perhaps you’ve just grown tired of elements of your existing home and want to finally move into a brand new home that is thoughtfully designed and both comfortable and efficient. LifeStyle Home Builders works hard to create homes that meet all of these needs.

While spring is one of the most popular times to list a home, summer is still an excellent time to put your home on the market. Anything originally listed in spring has been picked over, so your home offers fresh interest to buyers who haven’t found what they’re looking for yet.

Another reason to sell during the summer are the longer days. People have more time to get out to see a home during daylight hours, which is when most people want to view a home. You’re also benefiting from a good season for curb appeal, as everything is still green and you’ve probably got some flowering plants to add to the appeal.

On top of all of this, it’s a good idea to look at the type of market that’s taking place. Ideally, you want a seller’s market, when there are more buyers than homes, leading to you getting a better price on your home, either full asking price or even higher, in some cases. Plus, your home is likely to sell much faster, so you won’t have the same worries about potentially dealing with two mortgages. Now is exactly that kind of seller’s market. There aren’t as many homes on the market now, but the demand is still quite high, so if you’re serious about selling your home, now is an excellent time to get it on the market. With limited numbers of homes and buyers wanting to take advantage of record low mortgage rates, you couldn’t ask for a much better time to sell your home.

If you’re serious about selling your home, we have some amazing Chesterfield VA homes available that are move-in ready or under construction if you want to move quickly. Of course, we offer homes throughout the area and you can always choose to start from the ground up for even more customized options. Regardless, when you choose a LifeStyle Home Builders’ home, you get to work with our Design Studio to further help you create your dream home. Contact us today if you’re ready to find a new home to truly fit your lifestyle.
