Northern Nevada has officially emerged from the winter depression and summer awakening. So what happens to the real estate market this time of year?
Each season has its own characteristics and characteristics, and summer is no exception. Due to the fact that children do not go to school, many people try to travel more to visit their families and see new places. People who are thinking of moving to Northern Nevada often find it more convenient to visit our area to explore and check out the housing market when the kids are out of school.
Summer shows are a lot like Christmas home shows when your home is decorated to the max and filled with wonderful seasonal baking smells. Spring turning into summer in Northern Nevada is the most beautiful time of the year if you are looking for green touches in your landscapes.
There is a lot of water at this time of the year and it is used for irrigation while it lasts. The fodder grows high, cattle and horses in the pasture shine with their healthy hair, throwing off the last winter “parks”. Honeyboards around the house are being completed so the boat can get wet, or the trailer / tents are opened to ventilate and stock up for upcoming adventures. These are exciting times and real estate is no exception.
Homes look great this time of year, lawns awakened and greened, flowers blooming and homes open to fresh air into the chill of the night. Indeed, now is a great time to show off your home. If people come to see you, be sure to open the blinds you have closed to keep the coolness gathered during the night.
It is important that people viewing your home feel comfortable visiting your property. If you have views, they are best shown to those who want to enjoy them in the coming years. Open it up. During this time of year we often go to the “caves”, the blinds / curtains are closed, the lights are off, just dark to save utilities. If you want to sell, forget to save that nickel, it will cost you dollars, and most likely a lot.
Buyers should be careful with the animals in the home, leaving it as they found it. Don’t let the cat out and don’t close the inner doors. You may be covering the animal from food and water. If a pet cat or dog gets out of the house at this time of the year, the heat can greatly affect them. Leave it the way you found it. If you open your blinds for sightseeing outside or walls inside, be sure to close them before going out. Just like walking through the gate to a ranch – you leave it as you found it, open or closed.
We suggest living in your home, as you always do during the sale process, but there are some things you can do to help your cause. If you have hooked winter parkas in the lobby and winter boots on the bottom, then it’s best to pack them for the summer. They do not correspond to the time of year and will create the wrong image of winter for the uninitiated. Our winters in the valleys are easy to adapt, but those who migrate from the sun-drenched land to the West fear the unknown … winter and snow.
Expect more performances than usual as the number of visitors increases. This is part of the process you signed up for. Inventories usually increase during this time of the year, but this year is an anomaly and we are sure that you are well aware of this and the stocks are low. This means your listing will show more and sales will be faster if you are priced correctly.
Ready to move in the summer? It may be warm, but better than the 5-degree weather we had on our last move. This temperature was also an anomaly, but it was the day to move, and we did it.
When you are ready to buy or sell, the time is … perfect, no matter what time of year. Define your wants and needs, get options and perspectives from your agent, and watch your plan come to fruition.
