Getting Ready For Spring Real Estate Listing Your Property.

Getting Ready For Spring Real Estate Listing Your Property.

Real estate in Maine, anywhere sells year round.

Because people’s lives work that way. All calendar long without black out dates. All four seasons but spring seems to be the time many home owners believe is the starting line.

To lace up the running shoes, dig in, wait for the whistle, the gun shot.

To put on the push to get the property listing for sale in motion.

The important things to do when selling your property.

Remember it is about focus. To keep your eye on the moving ball.

Before the declutter, clean up and replace the dead light bulbs. Lots more besides spring cleaning to make it smell fresh, sparkle brightly.

Buyers for real estate make mistakes too. Often tied to timing., They want to buy, but after finding the house of their dreams learn they are not in a position to because of loose ends. Lots that they did not know about.

Because buying a home, selling a house too is not something that is done on a regular basis.

Lots can go wrong in the sale of real estate. Just the process that like many industries is more techincal and complex. Way beyond the skill sets of even a Jack of all trades.

If not handled correctly, things snow ball too. A little thing called DOM, days on market starts to kick in.

Like the Titanic that hit the iceberg, starting to list sideways at a dangerous angle.

Then everything gets still and here it comes. Oh oh, heading to the bottom of the cold dark ocean happens in a gurgle of bubbles.band playing drums photo

The earlier in spring you list the better.

Because of the all wrong old wive’s tale about nothing selling during winter.

The late winter entry to the housing market property owner. Gets the jump on all those others. That finally list their places. Many drag their sneakers, get busy, distracted. And finally go live online by the first of June or later.

Start the cymbal crash, beat of the marketing drum roll to showcase look what we have here before you have to sell. It takes some time for the marketing legs to get stretched.

New to the Maine real estate market to tap your toe to, to wolf whistle about that gets your buyer thinking seriously about the what if.

This was their Maine propertylisting, to own and enjoy.

If the seller is worried about the real estate possession date and moving too soon, too rushed. Then make that part of the real estate sale conditions to whoa Nellie. Ease it back to take away the rush rush. ice fishing in maine photo

The property buyer often does not want to move in winter either if there are kids in school.

And waiting until winter gets over, school out to happen. All it is part of the plan to catch their breath while packing those moving boxes. Loading up the stuff to point it toward the new home in Maine.

Being flexible, having the place tip top and loose ends tied up will help a real estate sale.

Making sure you are really ready as the seller to follow through with the sale is key too. Just like are you all qualified to buy or not before you get too far into the kicking tires on the property listings. Get those property listings online, for those folks surfing, fishing for Maine real estate.
