When Should You List Your Delaware or Pennsylvania Home?

Now that we're inching toward the summer season and the real estate market has certainly been heating up, you may have heard that now is a great time to sell your Delaware or Pennsylvania home.
There are indeed more buyers in search of properties in Delaware and Pennsylvania, home prices are rising, and landing top dollar is not so uncommon anymore— but just remember, timing is everything!
The assumption that spring is the proper time is not always accurate. Below are four things to consider if you're ready to sell your home.
Spring isn't always best
Many believe that spring is the best time to sell your home, however according to Realtor.com, "one recent study found that sellers typically net more above asking price during the months of December, January, February, and March than they do from June through November."

Delaware and Pennsylvania Home Selling Points to Highlight to Buyers

With more homebuyers in the local real estate market this summer, one thing is for certain— buyers are looking for home features that their current homes do not already supply. Popular selling points like extra storage, organization, a great location, low-energy features and low maintenance will stand out to those looking to purchase a home in Delaware and Pennsylvania area.
If you're a DE or PA home seller, it's important to highlight your home's best features, no matter the reasons you're moving on. Don't take your current home for granted and you could just set the stage for a home sale. 
Storage Space
For many homebuyers in the Delaware real estate market right now, especially those first-time homebuyers who are dealing with little space, storage is a big plus. Despite what you think of your home—maybe you have a standard basement or garage that you use as storage—a first-time homebuyer may think they've hit the jackpot. Built-in storage in the kitchen?

4 Issues to Fix Before Listing Your Delaware or Pennsylvania Home

Every Delaware and Pennsylvania homeowner has a successful sale in mind when they list their property, but did you know there are several common issues that can cause the transaction to come apart at the seams? If you are aware of any problems prior to listing your DE or PA home, it is always wise to remedy them. I've included a few of the common red flags to watch for around your property before you place that For Sale sign in the yard.
Worn, old roof
When searching for homes in Delaware and Pennsylvania, buyers can quickly make a note of those whose roofs look like they may need replacing. If your roof is coming to the end of its road (typically 20 to 25 years), replacing it could help you sell faster.
Old appliances
Today's homebuyers are looking for updated kitchens with newer appliances. They do not want to have this expense upon their move into your home. If you have dated appliances, buyers may also wonder what else you've failed to replace.
Difficult, creaky windows
