Spring has officially sprung! This season is a favorite among many Texas and California residents as it brings more daylight and pleasant temperatures. From California’s wine country and national parks to Texas’ bluebonnet sightings and trips to the rodeo, the spring season brings lots of great activities for you and your families to take advantage of. Not to mention, for both states, the magic window for real estate opportunity begins this season.
Listing your investment property in the spring doesn’t just mean more money, but it can result in a faster sale as well. Demand is in its prime as the largest number of buyers are actively searching for a new home at this time.
Also, research shows that homes listed for sale in early May sell for $1,600 more than the average listing throughout the year.

When selling your property, don’t forget to use the beautiful weather for your marketing advantage. We recommend cleaning all of your windows, putting out fresh flowers, keeping your curtains open and yard raked, and considering investing in some beautiful landscape additions that could really attract traffic to your property. People tend to be more active in warmer weather, which means more attendance at your upcoming open houses! The additional daylight this season also gives you more opportunities to complete any of that hard, manual renovation work you might be performing yourself on a fix and flip property.
Of course there are small variations market to market, but the magic window for real estate can consistently be found in the springtime.
