Is Spring the Best Time to Sell Your Denver Home?

Posted on at 10:45 pm by Andrea Webber

Spring officially arrives this week, although this may be hard to believe after last week’s “bomb cyclone.” I am often asked: “What is the best time of the year to sell my Denver home?” While you will need to define “best” in your personal situation, the answer is simple for the busiest and strongest selling market: Spring.

The onset of the spring season signals the start of the busiest time in the Denver real estate market. There are more buyers looking for homes from March to early June than any other time of the year. There are several reasons for a blooming spring Denver real estate market, including warmer weather and more daylight hours. Here are a few other reasons why spring is a great time to sell your Denver home:

  • Denver home prices are typically higher in the spring than in other months, due to increased demand.
  • Homebuyers are excited as winter comes to an end and they come out of hibernation with more energy to put into finding their perfect home.
  • Families planning for the next school year want to be settled in a new home by the end of the summer.
  • Potential buyers may receive tax refunds, meaning they may have more money available for a down payment or closing costs.
  • It is simply more convenient to move during the spring and summer. Who wants to move in the middle of a snow storm?
  • It is a great time to spruce up your home’s curb appeal. Adding some tulips to the front yard, or a fresh coat of paint can make all the difference to potential buyers.
  • Have you done your annual spring cleaning and de-cluttered your home? This is an ideal time to put your home on the market.

While spring is a great time to sell your Denver home, the Denver real estate market remains relatively strong during all seasons, especially summer. The fall and winter seasons often bring more serious buyers, including possible relocations, and sellers face reduced competition with fewer homes on the market.
In conclusion, you will need to put together a strong marketing plan to sell your home that takes historical trends and timing into account. To do this, it is best to seek the help of an experienced real estate agent who is very familiar with your neighborhood.
