Why Spring Is the Perfect Time to Sell Your Home

Spring is almost here and interest rates are low–which means it's a great time to make the most of eager buyers. With warmer weather on the way and vacation season coming to a close, homebuyers are coming out of hibernation, and it’s the time of year that's typically considered a hot period for the housing market. 

If you’ve considered selling your home, here's why spring is a great time to move forward with those plans:
- Warmer weather makes buyers active.
- The market is in the right place.
- There are plenty of buyers.
- You can get a head start.

Homebuyers have a tendency to taper off in the winter, and not just in parts of the country that typically have frigid weather. A mixture of holiday obligations and kids in school lead to more homes coming off the market temporarily and buyers pressing pause on checking out new listings.

By the time spring hits, cabin fever has people anxious to start touring homes.

There’s still time to get your home on the market this spring to take advantage of the growing number of interested buyers, but successfully reaching potential buyers requires a bit more work than just an online listing, and it’s best to get started sooner rather than later!


Refresh Your Home with Painted Cabinets

Just because your cabinets are starting to look outdated, doesn’t mean you have to completely replace them. Refinishing those old cabinets is a great way to still transform them, without the cost of a full replacement. 

Instead of having difficulty accessing your kitchen or a loud, messy process, refinishing is quick, quiet and non-invasive. It is also a much quicker process than a full replacement, often taking only a couple of days. The right paint/lacquer can help your kitchen feel bigger or brighter, which will help make your kitchen a real focal feature. A beautiful kitchen will help boost your home’s value all around, which in turn will boost that resale value!

When you work with a cabinet refinisher, they come armed with all the experience needed to choose the right colours. Different cabinet materials will work better with certain paints and stains, and less so with others. Plus - choosing to refinish your cabinets and not replace them will save you almost a third of the cost! For more information or to help find a cabinet refinisher, visit www.bestmynest.com.
