Today we are going to talk about when the spring real estate market actually begins in Long Island. We get the question all the time, and many people are under the impression that the spring market only begins when the weather starts getting nice out and we are well into March and April. This isn’t true, and if you still choose to believe it, you’ll be missing out on the best part of the spring market.
The truth about the spring market is that people actually start preparing their homes for sale in January, and things really kick into full-swing this month. People want to move in by the summer, and since delayed closings are common in Long Island, they are looking to sign their contracts in the next month or two. Sellers want to secure a buyer and wait to close until June, when the kids are done with school.
Those homes that are closing in June or July are actually on the market right now. There is a huge pool of buyers out there looking right now, so you’ve got to act fast if you don’t want to miss out. If you have been thinking about buying or selling, get on the phone, and give us a call. We would love to walk you through the process and get your home sold right away. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out!
