When is the best time to put our home on the market?

This is a great question as there is no right or wrong time. However, stats show that the spring market is typically the most active home buying and selling season. The snow is melting, the holidays are over and in some provinces, the colorful crocuses are popping into bloom.

A new year brings new resolutions and often buying or selling a home is on that extensive list of annual goals. Canadians are awakened into a home buying frame of mind and begin their home search usually online followed by open house visits to selected homes on their wish list.

Start preparing your home for sale early in the year so it’s ready for the spring rush. Focus on curb appeal, clean the outside, trim the hedges, declutter, paint the inside a neutral color, buy a welcome mat, paint the front door and make your home sparkle! A good realtor can give you a second opinion and often bring in a design or staging expert to give your home the extra touch it may need. Don’t be a late bloomer! Start early to ensure your home stands out to capture those spring buyers! – Devon Owen, www.devonowen.com
