As a home seller, it’s natural for you to want to get the best deal for your trouble.
One of the most common questions I get from sellers is if there’s such a thing as the best time to sell your oceanview home in Santa Cruz CA.
The common answer to this is spring, often regarded as the best season to sell properties. But as we’ll discuss later, there really is no best time to sell homes in this area.
Why Spring is Often Regarded as the Best Season to Sell Homes
The common thinking in real estate is the warmer the month is, the better time to sell your property.
It makes sense for families to sell their home at the end of the school year, which is usually spring or summer.
Spring Makes It Easier to Sell Homes
If we’re to believe Zillow, homes listed in spring, specifically during the first half of May, get sold two weeks faster than average and for an extra $2,500. A big factor here is during spring, people are itching to get around and do some home viewing.
Homes also get better curb appeal in spring when the grass is vibrant and healthy and flowers are blooming.
But don’t lose hope if your circumstances don’t allow you to sell during spring. You certainly don’t have to wait another year! Ultimately, it comes down to what you need, and besides, there are also benefits in selling your home on fall or even winter.
Don’t Rule Out Selling in Fall or Winter
Selling in fall isn’t advised in areas with extreme climates, but selling real estate in Santa Cruz CA is a different case. Despite the days getting shorter, the fall in Santa Cruz, unlike many other places in the country, is still warm with lots of sunshine.
Plus, fall, with its orange leaves, gentle breezes, and bright skies, has its own ways of adding to your property’s curb appeal. Also, when you think of fall, images of warm soup in a cozy day indoors spring to mind. You can definitely play this up in appealing to your target buyers.
What about winter?
Although the least ideal season for selling a property, winter is still possible if you don’t have any other choice.
The main advantage of selling in winter is the lower competition. But here’s another: for Santa Cruz oceanview homes, you can take advantage of how enthralling the beach is during winter. With the endless fog and crisp air, the beach takes on a different charm. And this can work in showcasing how your property can give buyers a unique view each season.
Ultimately, when you sell your property depends on your needs. If you can afford to wait, spring is the best season, but each season has its own merits that you can play up to your advantage.
