The Spring Market: Why Now is A Great Time to Buy and Sell!

You have likely read before that the spring is a great time to buy or sell a home in Calgary, Alberta. This is a popular phrase many real estate professionals use, and we are here to tell you that the rumors are true! Spring is indeed a great time to buy or sell a home. Here are some of the reasons why:

For Buyers:

  • Many homes get listed in the spring, which means you need to be ready to scoop up a great property before it is sold. With such a competitive market right now, buyers need to be one step ahead of everyone else in order to secure a property. Contact Team Ken Richter today to get poised to buy!
  • The weather is better! Simply put, it is easier to navigate going to viewings, booking inspections, and more when the weather is nice. As the snow thaws and warm days await us, it becomes a much more pleasant experience searching for a home. Plus, you'll be able to see each property at its fullest potential; not buried in snow.
  • Buying in the spring means your potential move-in happens during the summer or at the start of a new financial quarter. If you have children, you'll be able to move between school years to make for a smoother adjustment. If you are busy at work, you'll be able to move when you're not in the height of the holiday season. 

For Sellers:

  • The summer market gets competitive. Informed sellers know their best move is to list in the spring so they can maximize reach to prospective buyers. Be ready with your property on the market so that you're prepared for the most proactive and motivated buyers. Contact Team Ken Richter today to get set up to sell!
  • Ever heard of curb-appeal? Well, it is much easier to accomplish when your property is not buried in snow, gravel, ice, and grime. Staging your home in the springtime means you can show off its full potential without barrier. 
  • Just like buying in the spring, selling in the spring means your move has a higher chance of going smoothly, too. As you move things from the sold property to the new one, book services like movers, cleaners, inspectors, etc,, and clear out anything you won't be taking with you, the spring weather makes the process much more enjoyable. 

Springtime has officially arrived, and it is time to make your move! Contact Ken Richter directly at 403-630-6363 or to get started.
