Homeowners on Chicago’s North Shore have many decisions to make when it comes to selling their property, but one that I’m happy to answer is when to list. The timing surrounding the listing of your North Shore home is important and as it turns out, this month is idyllic.
May is one of the best times to sell your home— with homes typically selling faster and for more than the national average. If you’ve been considering listing your home in Glencoe, Winnetka, Highland Park, Deerfield, Northbrook, Lake Forest, Wilmette, Evanston, Glenview, Riverwoods, Bannockburn, or surrounding North Shore communities, below are three reasons why you might like to consider this month:
School is almost finished
While it has been a less than ordinary year for schools on the North Shore (some virtual, some in person), many residents base their moving times on the school year. Moving before the end of the summer allows homeowners to avoid changing school districts mid-term and settle in before the new year begins.
The weather is favorable for moving
Late spring and early summer bring a wave of warmer weather that we’ve been missing for months and for homeowners, that means excellent moving conditions. Few desire to move in the snow and rain, but May presents a prime opportunity to move in the clear, cool temperatures.
Tax season has just ended
Tax refunds offer homeowners the option to either channel the money back into their property with upgrades or in this case, into a new property altogether. Homeowners listing their property this month have the opportunity to put their refund to use as a down payment and to cover closing costs on their new home.
