Why Selling Your Home in Summer Will Make a Splash

Spring is one of the most traditional times to sell a home. But don’t overlook summer as a time to list and sell your home in Long Beach CA or surrounding communities. Here are five reasons why you should sell your home this summer:

  1. High demand: During the summer, there is a surge in home buyers. Many families prefer to move during the summer season to avoid disruptions to their children’s school schedules. With more buyers in the market, you have a better chance of selling your home quickly and at a favorable price.
  2. Curb appeal: Summer brings out the best in your home’s exterior. Lush green lawns, blooming flowers, and well-maintained landscapes enhance the curb appeal and attract potential buyers.
  3. Better lighting: Longer daylight hours in summer mean more natural light streaming through windows, making your home appear brighter and more inviting. Open curtains and blinds to showcase your home’s best features.
  4. Favorable weather for home improvements: Summer offers ideal weather conditions for completing necessary repairs or renovations before listing your home. Take advantage of the warm and dry weather to spruce up your home’s interior and exterior. Fresh paint, repaired fences, and upgraded landscaping significantly enhance the appeal and value of your property.
  5. Competitive market: With increased buyer demand during the summer, the real estate market becomes more competitive. Multiple interested buyers can drive up the selling price and create bidding wars. This competitive environment can work to your advantage, resulting in a higher sale price for your home. And especially in our market right now, the inventory of homes on the market is quite low, which is good news for potential sellers.

Selling your home during the summer presents a unique opportunity to capitalize on high demand, enhance curb appeal, benefit from natural lighting, complete necessary repairs, and take advantage of a competitive market. Consider listing your home this summer to maximize your chances of a successful and profitable sale.
