    March Madness: Why this is the perfect month to buy a home


    March is a great time to spring into home buying — or selling!

    Armstrong Real Estate is your go-to guide for Nashville real estate


    March is a big time for college basketball fans. Most offices are deeply entrenched in brackets and a few friendly side bets. But March Madness doesn’t just have to apply to hoops. It’s also an apt description for the real estate market.


    Homes are popping up on the market like daffodils pushing up through the mulch. Sellers are making things ready, and buyers are gearing up for that big push to find that home they’ve been dreaming of. Armstrong Real Estate with Keller Williams knows the territory well, so we hope you’ll let us be your guide when it comes to finding a new home or selling your current home. As for whether March is the best time for that to happen, here are three reasons that could help swing you in that direction:


    1. Spring is a time for new beginnings. Signs of growth, renewal and change are all around you. You start unwrapping yourself, literally, after long winter, and maybe you start coming out of your cocoon a bit, too, figuratively. So if you’ve been on the fence for awhile about whether to move forward and buy a home, spring is the season that can suddenly make things seem quite clear: Yes, it’s time for something new. Yes, change is good. Yes, I’m ready for an exciting new chapter in my life. It also happens to be a time when a lot of sellers who put their listings on hiatus over the winter months decide to put their homes back on the market again, so you’ll have a lot of inventory to choose from. Here are some of our latest listings.


    1. Curb appeal is simplified. Colorful signs of early spring are popping up everywhere, but we haven’t quite reached that stage of lush green and profuse blooms everywhere — and that can actually work to your advantage. You can see houses and properties more clearly this time of year. Yes, shade trees, garden beds and vegetation add charm, but it sometimes helps flesh out your vision if you can see the house’s bare bones, so to speak.


    1. You can more easily check out all the housing systems. March is one of those infamous months in Middle Tennessee. Before we even hit the middle of the month, we had already experienced a big snowstorm, ice, heavy rains and some gloriously sunny days that were legitimately shorts-and-sandals weather (and we can’t wait for more of those!). That’s nothing less than a gift for a home-buyer. You can check out what your potential new home is like in all of these conditions. Is the driveway too steep for you? Do the gutters need replacing? And best of all, you can really test the mettle of both the heating and air-conditioning systems — both of which are vital in our part of the world.
