May Flowers…

Moving through the Spring cleaning motions: weed-picking, branch-busting, deck-staining, closet organizing—thoughts of selling your home come right before Summer. This being my second Spring and soon to be Summer in my home, I can tell why people may get the itch when the buds start to grow to sell!

People’s reasons for selling and then buying again are numerous, but they mostly relate to life transitions and changing needs.

Top 5 reasons for selling right now:

1. Want to be in a different neighborhood (40%)
2. Need a home with different features (28%)
3. Need a bigger home (22%)
4. Want location with better weather, views, and/or lifestyle (19%)
5. Need to lower cost of living (17%)

Remember to stop and smell the tulips, buds (or roses),
