The #1 Reason to Sell Your Home Before Spring

Thinking of selling your home this year? There are a number of reasons you should consider selling sooner than later. As Spring is fast approaching, a large number of other homes will go up for sale. This increase of inventory will influence the price of your home. The price of any item (including residential real estate) is determined by ‘supply and demand.’ If many people are looking to buy an item and the supply of that item is limited, the price of that item increases. Come Spring, home prices may fall due to an increase in supply.
