The clock is ticking, its almost selling season. Clients, customers and people we talk to have a very common question about this time of year. “I’m going to sell my house, when should I list it so I take advantage of the spring selling season.” While the spring time in Charlotte brings flowers and green lawns, warmer temps and outdoor activity.

Also, lets face it, about the time we are convinced we’ve turned the corner on winter and its clear sailing for blue skies and sunshine, mother nature sends another ice storm our way.
So lets look at some other factors. Large corporations move their employees at various times of the year but the “new money” and budgets for relocations are available generally as the calendar turns. These same employees and their families have school age children often times which affects when they are willing to move or how they time their purchase.
