Want to Sell in the Summer? Now is the Time to List!

It’s true that summer is an ideal time to sell a home in Central Pennsylvania. Lawns are lush green, trees have gorgeous foliage, and flower boxes and patio furniture charm even the pickiest buyer. But, home sales don’t always happen instantaneously.

Late winter and early spring (that means now) is the best time to list a home and get prospective buyers’ interest.

Let us guide you through the selling process.

As we mentioned a few months ago in our blog, our region is experiencing lower than optimal inventory – it is indeed a “seller’s market”.

Prices also continue to rise, with the median sales price growing two percent in the fourth quarter and ending the year up three percent at $169,900.

Overall, days on market dropped 12 percent to 86 days in 2013. 86 days is almost three months, so listing in the late winter or early spring is the very best time, statistically, to list your home if you’re looking for a summer sale.

There is also great momentum right now in terms of lending, so prospective buyers have the opportunity to take advantage of competitive rates and willing lending institutions.

When you’re ready to list your home, contact Bowen Agency Realtors. We would love to work with you!
