At the height of the pandemic, any time of the year was favorable to sell. But now that the market is stabilizing, once again timing is an important factor. So it is essential to note that selling your property in the spring can bring you both a higher selling price and a faster sale.
How long should it take to decide to put your home up for sale?
Normally your real estate broker first will suggest you carry out some repairs and preparations. This is why the pre-sale consultation is so important. In the current market, a well-presented property at the right price should sell within 4-6 weeks. Of course time for moving is always negotiated in the promise of sale and can vary between 30-180 days, always at the seller’s discretion.
Why is spring the best time to list?
Serious buyers who want to move in the summer are motivated to conclude transactions well in advance. And people are more open to change in the spring; it is a time of renewal! Gardens are in bloom, adding curb appeal to your dwelling, and the natural light filling the interior spaces is optimal. In addition, families try to plan their purchase in order to be well settled in their new home by the start of the school year.

Set a competitive price for your home
Your property is not worth what you—or your broker—think it is worth. Rather, it is worth what a buyer is willing to pay. The prices of properties competing with yours will determine your sale price. During our meeting, we will consult the comparables with you in order to ensure the price set is the right one.
