5 Good Reasons to Sell your house during the Spring Season

Spring is generally a great time to sell your house since a great amount of house selling falls from March through May.  This is when the inventory of homes for sale tends to be at its highest, and the buyer pool tends to be at its largest. With the weather warming up, and the school year coming to an end, many home buyers are ready to make a big purchase and a fresh start.  There are several reasons why this is a great season for you to sell your house.

  1. Weather is perfect for moving – Many people won’t have to fight snow, ice, and bitter cold temps when moving to a new home or worrying about overheating.
