Spring Real Estate Market

Spring is usually a busier time of year for home sales. There's usually more inventory and buyers on the market. If you are thinking about purchasing or listing a property, this article offers an overview of the Spring market in New Hampshire.

The Impact of Seasons

The Spring tends to be a less hectic time of year for most people. In the Fall months, children start school and families are occupied with adapting. Winter is busy with holiday events. January thru April comes tax season. Only after that do schedules open up for many. As Spring approaches, people are driven by more daylight hours and warmer weather. As a result, Spring is a more active time of year for the real estate market.

More Inventory

Sellers usually believe that their properties present better during the spring and summer and that this will help them achieve a higher sale price. They naturally start cleaning up the exterior of the home as the weather changes and flowers begin to grow. The extended daylight hours also provide additional time for these tasks. The Spring usually brings an influx of homes for sale as a result. This also means more competition, so home owners should think carefully about pricing their homes competitively to ensure a prompt sale. They may want to also simplify the showing process. Buyers will skip ones with cumbersome or limited showing procedures. With the right pricing and viewing procedures, Sellers will make the most of the Spring real estate market.

Level of Competition

Buyers also tend to have more time to spend on their home search during the Spring and like the availability of inventory on the market. It is essential for buyers to stay focused on their criteria rather than trying to view every property for sale. The most desirable properties will go under agreement quickly due to the volume of competing buyers. Buyers who hesitate too long can end up missing out on the property of their dreams.

An Overview Of The Spring Market In New Hampshire
