Temperatures are not the only thing heating up this summer – summer can be red hot for real estate!  Spring proved to be a very active real estate season in Arizona and we anticipate activity will trickle over into the summer months.  If you are on the fence with whether or not to list your home, we can assure you that summer is the perfect time to sell.  Here is why…

Summer Showings are Perfection

Longer summer days make time for more showings and with more people out and about traffic for open houses will also increase. The beautiful bright sun will have your home looking its best.  Most buyers are looking for a home that is light and bright and with a summertime glow your home will be shining.  Since the sun is out for so long you’ll likely have evening showings for buyers who work during the day.  Imagine showing your beautiful AZ home with a gorgeous desert sunset in the background on a warm summer night.  

Summer is also a great time to be on vacation, which can make showing your home even easier for you and your agent.  We have many clients who let us know when they will be gone for the summer giving us time to show their home freely.  How easy is that?  We can even help you get your home looking perfect before you leave and handle all the showings.  Forget about the stress of constantly cleaning up and clearing out while potential buyers come to look.  

Buyers are Ready 

Summer buyers are looking with a sense of urgency.  In the summer, we see less buyers looking for fun and more buyers who have a clear goal and a time restriction. Here in the Valley, we spend time showing our clients around and touring areas to find what feels like home.  We always enjoy looking at homes with our clients, and in the summer months, with temperatures in the 110s we find anyone who is looking for a home is motivated to buy.  Many buyers have missed out on the house during the spring months and need to close on something before the school year begins in the fall.  Most relocation activity happens in the summer, especially for families with children.  For many people, summer is the perfect time to move! 

In the luxury home market, we’re still seeing a drought of homes for sale but the market is flush with buyers eager to make an offer. This is the perfect combination for sellers!
