It’s Prime House Buying and Selling Season on Hilton Head Island

If you are thinking about buying or selling your SC Low Country home, now is the time! The busiest season in real estate is about to begin in Bluffton and on Hilton Head Island! That’s right. Buyers are now starting to look earlier in the year for their new home, so now is the beginning of the busiest home shopping season, instead of April.

Listing your Hilton Head or Bluffton home for sale now is a great move. Not only are there typically fewer homes on the market for sale during March, but listing  your home now will also allow you to get ahead of the upcoming spring market, giving you less competition as well as giving homebuyers an interesting new listing to consider while the market is slow with inventory.

Even though experts are not exactly sure what is motivating potential homebuyers to get an earlier start, they do agree that if you are thinking about buying or selling a home this year, the earlier you get started, the better. It is a savvy move to sell your home when there is more demand and less inventory…and while the greatest number of buyers are in the market – which is exactly what is happening in Hilton Head and Bluffton real estate right now.

The Best Time to List Your Home for Sale

If you’re wondering if there is a better time of the year to sell your home, the answer is yes! As an
experienced Bluffton Realtor, I can tell you that the time of year you decide to sell your home definitely
matters and plays an important role in the Hilton Head and Bluffton housing market.
Best Season to Buy or Sell Your Bluffton Home.

There is definitely more home buying/selling activity in the spring and summer months than there is
during the fall and winter seasons. There are several factors that come into play that make the spring
and summer a better market for homes for sale in Bluffton. Circumstances like school being out gives
families a much more open schedule and a chance to relocate without affecting their child’s school year.
In the fall, school resumes, then we have the holidays, which both make families want to be settled in
their homes instead of buying or selling them.

Typically, a Realtor in Bluffton will see an increase in the number of home sales as the Low Country
housing market approaches the spring “home-selling” season. In fact, home sales begin to increase in
February and March, after the holidays, and continues to increase through August. Sales start to see a
decrease in the new school year approaches, making the best market for homes for sale in Bluffton in
May, June, July, and August.

These peak selling months are important for both buyers and sellers. For home buyers, there is a
greater inventory of homes for sale in Bluffton to choose from, so they will have a better chance of
finding the right property. For sellers, it means the home will sell faster and with less marketing efforts.
