Looking Forward to Spring

Bean Group
FEBRUARY 2011

There are many reasons to look forward to spring. Thoughts of spring flowers and April showers can be a real respite from the bitter ice and cold that many are experiencing in the northeastern half of the U.S. For those of us in real estate, the spring selling season is literally just around the corner and there is much to prepare for in advance.

The spring season is historically the busiest time of year in real estate so if you are thinking of putting your home on the market for this coming selling season, now is really the perfect time to meet with a Bean Group sales professional to discuss your options. There is much a homeowner needs to prepare for and a sales professional can help you prioritize and map-out your plan.

The spring market is a prime opportunity for sellers to capture motivated buyers, and sellers need to ensure their property stands out from the competition. To do so, price positioning and home presentation are critical factors in attracting a buyer’s attention.

Your Bean Group sales professional will provide you with a competitive market analysis and review current market conditions with you. You can also look to the attached graph to gauge what is currently happening in your marketplace. Your sales professional will use this information along with a review of current inventory, recent comparable sales prices and other data to advise you. In addition, your sales professional will know which competitive properties currently on the market will impact you and can guide you on the optimal listing price to sell your home.

They will also direct you on how to prepare your home for maximum appeal. With spring only a few months away you have just enough time to remove the clutter, repaint, repair and refurbish those areas of your home that need it.

If your home is currently on the market, it is still a great time to review your current marketing plan and prepare to make the adjustments necessary to remain competitive during the high-selling season.

Regardless of the amount of snow on the ground right now, the reality is spring isn’t too far away. Be prepared and call your Bean Group real estate professional today.
