The housing market in Phoenix is on the rise and that makes it a great time to sell your home. Inventory is low so there is less competition and homes are selling quickly and for a great price. But don’t wait too long. You will want to get your home on the market before summer is in full swing.
If you are selling a family home, then it is logical to think that your potential buyers will be families. Moving during the summer is the most common for families with children in school. It lets the kids finish a school year without the stress, excitement or confusion that can accompany a move. It can be very helpful to think like a family who is new to your area to understand what they will be looking for and why they will want to move during the summer.
If you are moving from another city or state, transitioning your children to the new area before school starts can ease their adjustment. It allows for time to explore the city, the new neighborhood and for children to make friends and get involved in activities. It also allows the entire family a chance to settle into the new house and get organized before the time demands of school and extra-curricular activities begin to consume everyones time.
If you are purchasing a home with a pool, then it will be a great feature for your children to enjoy during their transition to the new home and city. Your family will quickly learn that summer in Phoenix centers around enjoying the outdoors and especially a refreshing pool.
Now that you have imagined all that a family will be searching for in a new home this summer, you can focus on marketing your home as the perfect family oasis. Spruce up the yard and pool area and the kids will instantly be attracted to your home. Provide information about local parks and schools to show both parents and kids what a kid friendly neighborhood you have.
Marketing your home for a summer sale is a great way to target families with children. Planning for a quick closing and move out date will let the new homeowners move in as quickly as possible and begin to get their home and lives in order before the start of another busy school year. Ask your real estate professional about other tips and ideas to insure that your home appeals to families and that it sells quickly.
