…year after year.
With the spring market right around the corner you’ve been asking “What can I do to get my home ready to sell?”
It’s a big question so I’ll break it down into some smaller chunks (that is how you eat an elephant after all).

The spring market each year is where we see the most homes selling (nearly 40% of homes sell in April, May,. and June, as oppose to 15% Nov-Jan), but that doesn’t mean its the best time to sell. Looking at the average price of home sales in Ottawa over the last 4 years, the highest in their respective years were February (2012), June (2011), and October (2010/09).
The important thing to know is homes sell year round, hundreds every month, even when it’s slow…making the best time to sell; the minute your home is ready.
