Why This Spring Is a Great Time to Sell
With more buyers coming to market this spring, here are the top three reasons you may want to consider selling your house and making a move this season. 1. First-Time Homebuyer Demand Is High In the latest Housing Trends Report , the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) measured the share of adults planning to buy a home over the next 12 months. The report indicates the percentage of all buyers who will be first-time buyers looking to purchase a home grew from 53% in Q4 2018 to 63% in Q4 2019.
