If you’re wondering when the best time to sell your Ventura County home is, this blog post will reveal 4 reasons why selling your house in spring in Ventura County may be the best time!
“Should I sell now?”
“Should I sell later?”
“What is the best season to sell my house in?”
Although Southern California does not have the extreme weather that other parts of the country may experience, you still may want to consider selling your Ventura County house in spring. While houses are bought and sold all year round, here are…
4 reasons to sell your home in the spring in Ventura County.
Reason #1 More Buyers
Spring is oftentimes the time of year when most buyers are looking to buy. A lot of families prefer to move during the summer when the kids are out of school, so spring is the perfect time for them to start looking for a new home. If you list your house for sale at the very end of winter or beginning of spring, you have a high chance of catching potential home buyers at just the right time.
Reason #2 Good Weather For Buyers
As stated earlier, we do not have extreme hot or cold in most areas of Ventura County, but you will still find that some people find that winter is too cold and summer is too hot to go house shopping. Although we typically do not receive much rain, there is still a chance that rainy conditions can cause buyers to track mud through your house when they come to view it.
That leaves the spring – a time when people are already motivated to buy, and the weather starts to work in their favor (and yours!)
Reason #3 Timing
In the summer, people are enjoying the weather and going on vacation.
In the fall, it’s back to school time.
In the winter, it’s time for holiday traditions and visiting family.
Spring usually involves the fewest commitments of the year which means people have more time to shop for homes. And as mentioned previously, this is a good time to start shopping for a home for those who prefer to start the moving process in summer.
Reason #4 Easier To Move
The final reason is that it’s easier to move… for the buyers and for you! As of the writing of this article, the average days on market in Ventura County is about 60 days. That means if you list your house in early spring, the possession date will possibly be late spring or early summer. The weather will be nice and the days will be longer, which will be perfect for both you and the buyers to move stuff out of the old house and into your new homes.
