Although it might seem like we just got to the spring season, a new season will be here before we know it! The Austin Board of REALTORS® just released the latest market stats for April, and if these numbers continue to increase, summer might be the best season to sell your home this year.

Let’s dive into four reasons you should consider listing your home this summer.

4 Reasons You Should Sell Your Home This Summer, Shane White, Real Estate, Texas Real Estate

Low Inventory

The Austin Board of REALTORS® shows a 3.4-month supply of inventory for Williamson County. While this is a 0.8-month increase from last April, it’s still well below the 6-month inventory needed for a balanced real estate market.

Low inventory means there’s less competition for sellers, a higher possibility for multiple offers, and higher sales prices. 

High Demand

Due to the low inventory in the current market, buyer demand for homes is still extremely high. This means there are likely more pre-approved buyers eager and ready to purchase homes like yours. As long as your home is well-maintained and priced right, you should be able to sell quickly and for a great price.

Faster Selling Process

Homes in Williamson County are currently on the market for an average of 58 days, according to the Austin Board of REALTORS® April Market Stats. Not only is this a 25-day decrease from last April, but it shows that homes aren’t on the market as long and are selling more quickly. Many buyers have been looking for the perfect home for a while and want to be moved in before the next school year, so they’re willing to negotiate the best terms with sellers to get the deal done as quickly as possible.

Showing-Ready Homes

In the summer, you’re outside mowing and taking care of the landscaping, which means your home has better curb appeal for photos and will be more showing-ready for buyers. An inviting exterior and beautiful landscaping help attract buyers and make an excellent first impression. Inside your home, the natural lighting from longer days will make your home appear more spacious and allow your home to shine!

The summer season is the perfect time to list your home and get top dollar! If you have any questions about the home selling process, don’t hesitate to reach out to us! We would love to provide our expertise and answer any questions you might have!
