Baton Rouge Real Estate Choosing Time to Sell

Glenda Daughety & Team, answering all of your Baton Rouge real estate questions

Choosing the right time to sell is a difficult task for many potential sellers of Baton Rouge real estate.  Different factors enter the selling equation after all, including preparation, price, and dates.  While every seller has an ideal scenario, the reality of realty is that there are no guarantees.  Today is as good a day as listing your Baton Rouge home for sale as any, maybe even better due to the time of the year.

If you have a specific date in mind for moving you will never time your home sale right, as you have no guarantee of when you home may sell.  It is best to list your home and then make dates a part of your counter offer.  Spring is here and some would liken that to the best time of year to sell  a home.  Contact your Baton Rouge REALTOR today to learn more about the selling process and what you need to do to get your home sold.
