Year after year, spring is the busiest season of real estate. After all, warmer weather and longer days inherently give people the inspiration for change. Spring flowers and budding greenery make the perfect backdrop for marketing a home. And there are a vast number of buyers and sellers who, working within the confines of a school calendar, want to purchase and move prior to the fall.
In addition to these expected seasonal factors, interest rates have slowly been rising over the past few months. Though still low (currently just over 4%) – many buyers are motivated to purchase relatively soon in case rates continue to rise. Thus, spring 2018 is looking to be an especially active quarter.
