Forming the east-end of the Greater Toronto Area and brimming with tourist attractions like all of the popular hiking and skiing spots is the Durham Region in Southern Ontario. With sparkling Lake Ontario and other surrounding lakes in the area perfect for waterfront activities, it has everything you need. 

It’s truly no wonder that the Durham Region is such a hot spot for house owners and those on the market to buy a new home, but what about selling?

Selling in the Springtime

Spring is truly seen as the best time of year to sell a home - more specifically the month of May.

Statistics show that homes listed between the beginning to middle of May sold on average, around 18.5 times faster than homes listed not in that time frame. 

Have you ever wondered why exactly homes tend to sell so much more in the Spring? 

Many of the reasons are based purely on seasonality and ease of buying and selling during the time rather than for any hyper complex reason. 

After all - that truly is one of the most important factors if not the most important in both selling and buying - timing. 

Here are just a few of the main reasons why selling your Durham region dream home in the Springtime is a great idea.

  1. Moving In Spring Is Just More Appealing 

Getting ready to move all of your furniture out of your home and into a new one with several feet of snow on the ground doesn’t exactly sound like the most appealing plan does it? Probably not - especially in Ontario - Durham Region sellers are definitely looking towards the Spring time in the house selling market.

  1. Show Off Your Home In The Spring

Homes are simply much more attractive in the Spring. If you think about a home you remember seeing that you absolutely loved - chances are the grass was a vibrant green, hedges trimmed, flowers blooming, and well maintained. Durham Region sellers - make sure to buy some seeds as Winter comes to an end.  

  1. The Hectic Holidays Are Over

Spring is a time for starting fresh - house hunters are ready for the season of renewal and with it the chance for the opportunity at finding their dream home. Durham Region home sellers should take the chance to show off their home as best they can this Spring and take advantage of Onatrio’s bidding war of the century. Holiday shoppers are finally out of the busy holiday season and ready for something new on the horizon. 

Selling your Durham Region home in the Spring is great for a variety of reasons - starting from the obvious curb appeal all the way to the sheer volume of home buyers expected that may only boost your value with multiple offers. 

While we may be in a seller’s market and it’s unknown when the tables will turn - what is known is that Spring is upon us. 

Durham Region sellers, get ready to put your home to work in Ontario's flaming hot housing market this Spring.
