Is the summer selling season of 2021 going to be different from the past?
In years past, the demand for housing typically diminished during the summer months because that’s when everyone is in vacation mode, and home buying and selling are put on the back burner. What’s different about this summer is that the demand for housing has been so high that we don’t see it decreasing.
Another key difference between today’s market and those in the past is the pandemic. Last year, many people didn’t want to put their homes on the market due to concerns about having strangers in their homes potentially spreading the virus. So what does that mean for you?
It means that if you’re thinking of selling, stick with your plans to go on vacation, but be sure to call a trusted Realtor so that you can have your home shown and sold while you’re sitting on a beach or vacationing somewhere nice with your family. You don’t have to be afraid while your home is on the market; there are still plenty of buyers out there looking for a home like yours. With constant communication via Zoom and the ability to sign legal contracts electronically, you can be anywhere in the world during the process.
The summer is a great time to get top dollar for your home as well, since homes tend to shower well during the summer months. It’s also a great time to move if you want to take advantage of the weather and have everything settled by the time the fall and school seasons begin.
Ultimately, our advice is to plan ahead with your home sale. Enjoy your vacation and let us handle the sale so that when you come home from your travels, you can simply start packing your bags and moving on to your next property.
