Real Estate Through The Seasons

The Fran Campbell Team knows that the real estate market fluctuates with the seasons, sometimes it's a sellers market and often, it's a buyers market. Many operate under the opinion that the real estate season begins in the spring and ends in the fall. While many homes and property sales take place in the spring and summer, the reality of the real estate market is that it largely depends on location in addition to the time of the year. Our agents are viewing and showing properties year-round and you never know when YOUR buyer will call - Fran Campbell Team RE/MAX Lake of the Ozarks offers some insight into real estate through the seasons.

Spring and Summer Market

Real estate inventory fluctuates with each season and generally, there tend to be the most properties on the market in the spring and summer months. Professionals typically consider this the best time for real estate buyers as the market tends to have a wide variety of properties. Additionally, this can mean that more competition from other buyers is likely. It's good to keep in mind that in particularly competitive real estate markets, sellers will be able to sell anytime of the year, determined buyers don't stop looking just because the seasons change. 

What Makes Spring & Summer a Good Time to Buy/Sell?
  • Households with families who have school-aged children often want to make a move when their kids are out of school for summer vacation. In areas where there are concentrated number of schools, spring and summer are great seasons for selling.
  • Location, location, location! The Lake of the Ozarks is known for our influx of seasonal visitors. This can drive the selling market during the summer. Selling during the spring or summer can be a great way to attract potential buyers in a tourist driven economy.

Fall and Winter Market

Early fall is a popular time to list a home, especially at the Lake of the Ozarks. You may find that sellers who were using their property over the summer are ready to hit the market. For buyers, the winter is also a good time of year to house hunt, many sellers this time of year are motivated and eager to make a deal. Listing in the winter also allows time for sellers who aren't in a rush to make decisions without feeling the pressure of spring or summer competition. 

What Makes Fall & Winter a Good Time to Buy/Sell
  • Properties listed in the fall and winter may attract more serious sellers and it's possible that there will be less competition overall. 
  • Sellers are realistic with their pricing, looking to create an opportunity for themselves as well as the buyers.
