St. Paddy's is here and so is the Spring Market!
Here in the Pacific Northwest; the early portion of spring can be a fickle time for weather. It is an ideal time to start your real estate adventure. Listing a home in March can be quite successful as discussed in this post from two weeks ago. For buyer getting the process started early is also a good idea. As the month ends and April begins a surge of new listings will appear on the Market. The buyers that started early have the upper hand over those that dive in late. Either they secured their dream home before the "rush" or they eliminated homes, styles, features and neighborhoods they don't like and can concentrate on what they want and like. These buyers can pull the trigger when the spot the right house.
There is more to Real Estate Spring Fever than just the weather. Spring Fever catches all of us. The home and garden shows start up, the Farmer's Market and a whole slew of spring activities that get people thinking about their own home and perhaps new homes they would like to have. This is a great time to start looking at house to buy and or list a home for sale.
