With this year’s brutal winter behind us the spring housing market is beginning to heat up. National Association of REALTORS® Chief Economist Lawrence Yun predicts sales activity to steadily pick up, provided more inventory reaches the market and job growth continues. Yun says price growth is also rising. This year’s spring market offers many opportunities for those thinking about selling their home.
Before a home is listed for sale sellers should prepare it with an eye toward what appeals to today’s buyers – something a REALTOR® can help sellers with. Enhancing curb appeal and showcasing areas like kitchens and bathrooms is helpful. Also, make sure the home is well-maintained, small repairs are completed and the home is free of clutter.
