Occasionally folks will ask me a question that we all here from time to time. I am asked... "When IS the best time to put my home up for sale ?"
The answer to this question, is similar to the answer to most questions. "It all depends."
There are so many reasons why people move.
If we started with the first of the year, we could go completely through the entire year and come up with a great reason why "that particular month" would be a great time to move.
Want to move, and get settled in time for your kids to go to school? If so, now is really the time to do something.
If your home is priced "within reason"... which means it is priced right about where it will appraise when the mortgage company sends out their appraiser... it should sell fairly quickly in the general Mentor, Ohio real estate market.
If the condition of your home makes it appear roomy, pleasant, and gives off a feeling of "yes, I could live here"... then your home should sell fairly quickly... in the Mentor, Ohio real estate market, or in any market.
Seriously... if you and your family would like to be settled by September... NOW is the time to act.
The longer you wait, sure, it can still be done, but if you wait too long... things can get "kinda crunchy" as far as timing is concerned.
