It is no surprise that a fresh start during the spring season for some means they’re ready to put their Chicago- North Graphic1Shore house on the market and/or start looking for a new Chicago-North Suburban place to call home.

Below are the top 4 reasons plus 1 tip on why spring can be an ideal time to get moving on selling, buying or both on the North Shore of Chicago:

1. A house on the market at the beginning of spring sets you up for a perfect timeline to move over the summer! The weather is most likely to cooperate with you during this time. A summer move is also ideal for those who have families…often better not to disrupt the children during the school year – especially if you’re relocating and changing school districts; this will allow a have a fresh start at the beginning of a brand new school year.

2. Uptick in traffic at open houses means increased probability of a sale. With milder weather, people are often more motivated to venture outside.

3. Houses look more appealing in the sunlight with nice curb enhanced greenery and/or flowers out front. Curb appeal is important year round. The spring shines a light on a home’s appearance literally and figuratively. It’s a little easier to make repairs to a home when the weather is mild. Spring is the time to finally stop putting off the little projects that have been building up through the winter. Fix that broken step banister put a fresh coat of paint on that chipped garage door, it can make the difference and have bearing on a buyer the moment they cross the threshold.

4. Take the fix-up projects a step further….There is certainly no better time to de-clutter than with the windows open for the first time after winter…can you say spring cleaning! Deciding to sell might be that extra push you need to finally get rid of those old clothes or an over abundance of toys. More tips and guides HERE and HERE
