Optimize Your Home Sale Timeline: Key Strategies for Selling in Summer

As a real estate expert, I often have conversations with sellers who are contemplating selling their homes in the summer but might not be fully prepared for the process.

Time flies by quickly, especially when it comes to getting your home ready for the market. Many sellers underestimate the time and effort it takes to prepare their homes for sale, only to realize that they might be running late in the process.

Let me break it down for you. In the past, we have broken down when the best time to sell is, but many want to make the move at a specific time of year, like the summer time. In Albuquerque, the school year typically starts in early August. This means that if you’re aiming to have an offer accepted by July 1st, you need to have your house on the market well before that date.

Some sellers may only need minimal preparation, like cleaning and staging for photos. Others might require more extensive updates such as painting, landscaping, or decluttering, which can take a few weeks to complete. It’s essential to plan and allocate enough time for these preparations to ensure a smooth selling process.

As we’re already in May, it’s crucial to start planning now to avoid any last-minute rush or stress. By discussing your selling timeline and goals with a professional real estate agent early on, you can streamline the process and maximize your chances of a successful sale.

Additionally, it’s essential to consider your future plans and where you’ll be moving to next. Our team at Venturi Realty Group is here to help you not only sell your current home but also find your dream home for the next chapter of your life.
