Spring is a Great Time to Sell Your House, but Are You Ready?


Spring is the normal time of year where Home Sellers think is the best time to put a House on the Market. But wait, is Your House Ready?   Is this the Best Time for You to Sell?Here are a few points to help you make the decision: Spring in Louisville, Bruce Moore, Realtor

1. Gauge the Real Estate Market

Your local Realtor can provide you with the statistics not only in the Louisville area but right down to your neighborhood to see what the market is doing.  Is there a glut of houses for sale in your area?  How long are houses sitting on the market?  What is the average home price?  And are the houses selling at or near the asking price?

2. Spring Clean Your House

Decluttering, painting, cleaning and yard work may seem like obvious things to do but you would be surprised by how many Sellers don’t do them. And yes, it takes time but not decluttering your house may be the worst offense that home sellers commit.  If you have a basement or a garage, this is perfect place to store boxes of things.

4. Have an Exit Plan

Your house could sell fast and depending on the terms of the contract you might have to find a place fast.  Even within a month.   Are you ready to move?   If you are looking for a house to buy, the timing can be very tricky here. Check out these Moving Tips
