Today we are going to discuss the spring market here in St. Louis and why you need to begin your search now if you plan on buying at all this spring.

A lot of prospective buyers have asked why they should start the home buying process now when they don’t plan on moving until March, April, or May. Here are a few reasons why we believe you should start now.

1. There are great homes on the market right now.
Because of low inventory and a low number of buyers in the market, there are some great homes out there right now and some great opportunities to buy them when the market is relatively quiet like it is now.


2. It’s never too early to start the process.
Even if there aren’t any homes on the market right now that meet your needs, starting the process now will ensure you are prepared for when that perfect home does come on the market. You will know what features and updates you are looking for, and you’ll be prepared to purchase when the time comes.

If the ideal time for you to move is somewhere in April or May, you are going to want to try to get a contract signed and closed in February or March. In many cases, sellers are fine with delayed closings; they just want to have a deal set in stone as soon as possible.

If you have any other questions for us, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
