Memorial Day was yesterday, which unofficially marked the start of summer here in the Greater Cleveland area! If you’ve been thinking about either buying or selling a home — This is great news for you!

Summer is arguably the BEST time to list your home and make a move. Here are a few reasons why:

It’s a Seller’s Market

During the summer months, between 30 – 40% of homes are SOLD! What this means for you is more showings, more offers, and potentially even a better sale price of your home!

More Curb Appeal

Summertime in the housing market means it’s all about the landscaping. Taking some extra time to curate your lawn and spruce up your garden will boost your curb appeal. When that happens, more buyers will be likely to venture inside your home!

More People are Outside

Statistically, most families wait until the summer months to move homes to beat the start of a new school year. But in addition to that fact, more people are just outside enjoying the warmer weather anyways! This means the likelihood is higher for families to come across your home.
