Looking to sell? You’ve got 3 weeks

Real Estate Growth

Homeowners thinking of selling should start painting those walls, repairing those ceiling cracks, planting a few geraniums and generally getting those old homestead in tip-top shape because the absolute prime time for selling is almost here: April 14-20.

Spring is generally considered the prime time to sell and some analysts believe that the third week of April is the most prime of all as prices have historically been 1.1% higher than at any other time.

As we’ve been noting, generally the trend has been more positive than in recent years. Mortgage rates are down a bit, prices are stabilizing, and, probably most significantly of all, inventory is increasing.
