Spring has arrived in Calgary! The grass is green and the flowers are in bloom. People are beginning to venture outside and play again as Calgary warms up for the summertime. Another thing that is warming up is the housing market.
Spring is always the most popular time in real estate. While other times of the year experience peaks in the market, spring is consistently active in the selling, buying, investing and renting sectors. There are a number of reasons why spring is the most popular time to enter the market.
Read on to find out why and how you can reap the rewards of such an active time in real estate.
First and foremost, the timing is ideal. Spring is a time of change and transition. University students are moving for the summer or graduating and entering the housing market, families are nearing the end of the work term and people everywhere are looking for a fresh start. Nothing puts people in the mood to consider a big move quite like springtime.
The weather also makes spring an ideal time to enter the housing market. The weather is nice, making it easier for homes to create curb appeal. After all, they won’t be buried in snow. The weather makes open houses easier to host and attend, along with making the moving process much easier. Overall, the nice weather is fantastic at ushering people out of their homes and into the market.
This spring is set to be a particularly active time for the market now that the economy here in Calgary is beginning to recover. More jobs are being created, which means more people are coming to Calgary, which means there is more of a demand for housing, which means more constructive crews needed, which means more jobs are being created (and so on and so forth). The market in Calgary is also experiencing a time of great balance; the market right now is good for buyers and sellers.
